Hi

Not long ago purchased a power commander v unit and auto tuner for my 09 nightrod special.

I am running a k and n air filter and a vh 2 into 1 pipe, I have downloaded the map from the pc website and enabled my auto tune via my laptop, should i be doing or enabeling anything else as I really dont know much about the system, such as, throttle position, speed calibration, tables, trims etc etc etc.

I dont know what all these settings mean and I cant find any additional info

Yes you do need to do a throttle calibration. Enure you have the HD ECM data checked. This will ensure the PC V is reading correctly. Then upload your map, go for a ride, when you get back hook the bike up get the map from the bike and check your trims. Save the file from the bike, accept trims and then make sure to send map after accepting trims back to the bike. If the trims are large you may want to change the percentage of change from 20 to 25 or even 30 to help dial in the map a little quicker.

Last but not least read/use the owner's manual. Then come by often and let us know how things are going.

You guys do ride year 'round down under? Thinking about a trip someday.

I'm just about to have one fitted to my 10' DX and am lucky enough to have a Harley drag specialist shop here in Mackay. These days, the whole fuel system on bikes has me stumped. Gone are the days of adjusting a couple of screws on the ole' S&S.

Same idea just done thru a computer......I had a hard time making the transition but now it's almost old hat....till I got my "F" now I am hooked on this whole auto tune capability and I am learning fast.

If you need to go to call power commander through the contact list on powercommander.com, they will tell you to go to the remote assistance link under support on the site. I had an issue with updating the firmware on my powercommander and they told me to do this. The tech on the other end was awsome he connected from his computer to mine and adjusted everything and updated my powercommander, he even told me to start my bike and he looked at everything while it was running. It was cool I was on the phone and watching my mouse move on my computer and all I had to do is watch. He even checked the AFR tables to make sure they where right. I would highly recommend doing this if you have any issues with the powercommander, he will also check to make sure you have checked certain boxes within the program that should be checked, if that makes any since. Thank you powercommander.com I have never seen such good technical support anywhere ever.
