Power Commander map question

I was given a power commander from the previous owner. So I started to look for maps for the bike and was a little confused on what can I use.

2001 with Hindle full exhaust as what the previous owner stated.

So what map should/could I use for it?

That is where the confusion sets in. I did some forum hopping and my question was not answered in any of them.

Your input is greatly appreciated.

maybe the yoshi full exhaust map or arrow full exhaust map on powercommander website. that is if you do in fact have a full exhaust as supposed to a slip-on system.

I'll get with him today and ask again. But I remember him saying its a full. So if they are slip ons, run the same manufacturers above?

You can run any one of the slip-on maps. Or try them all and use whichever you feel is best. But the best option is always to bring it to a tuner an get it mapped for your bike. I read a thread on here where LDH recommended to run the yoshi full exhaust map with the hindle full exhaust, but only until u can get it mapped by a reputable tuner.

Thanks again for the info. I will definitely give those maps a try. I'll have to look around here or someone close for a tuner.

How close is El Paso to Austin. I have an internet buddy who works at family motorcycle store, he might have a recommendation for you.
Try sending a PM to LDH. He's our resident guru on anything RC51. He's tried everything under the sun and documented a lot of it.

About 8 hours depending on how you drive. I will do that. I could always use more info.

Oh, so about 4 hours on a bike?
I'll contact him and see if he has any tuner rec's in El Paso.

Getting it tuned is the way to go. I don't know why people bother to spend a thousand on an exhaust, then a couple hundred on a PC, and then never want to spend a couple hundred more to get the most out of what they've already spent.




I'm always right.

That's like buying a hooker and not buying condoms.....just don't make sense.

The Dynojet website has a link to find tuners in your area. http://www.powercommander.com/powerc...r_locator.aspx
