That's interesting to hear about the cowl- I didn't realize it had been replaced. As long as he was replacing it, it would have been nice if he installed one in better condition! I guess the bike could have been down since then too. Checked the VIN and it's an 03.
I couldn't be happier with the exhaust, though I'm wondering if I should re-pack it and what's involved in doing that. I've heard it's easy but I've never done it on my bikes.
As far as the PC3 goes, I'll try the map or maybe another if someone suggests something else, but the bike runs great as it is and I don't feel like I need any more power- at least at the moment. I'm always inclined to tinker though, so maybe I'll get restless and see if I can find anyone with a dyno around here to run it. It's not even installed on the bike currently.
I've also thought about putting some sort of cover (carbon fiber) on the dash. Mine looks like it has melted a little and I've read that it's a common problem, especially with certain aftermarket windshields.
Thanks for the warm welcome.
Do you mean the PC is not installed on the bike currently? (That's ok I think, may run a little lean, like you're describing, and like SubSailor explained.)
And loosing power at 5K rpm? That sounds like the flapper kicking closed. Possibly. What I don't understand is, when did the PC get unhooked?
If you've been on rogue's site, than maybe you already know about the Flapper Mod? in their Mods section?
Look into the air intake with a flashlight and see if you see a black flapper in the open position, that would cover the left half (the chain side of the bike) of the air intake. If you see it in there, than look right below the speedometer on top of the frame: there's big cap with a vacuum hose attached. If you see that, the flapper mod has not been done, and that could
explain your symptoms. Sato exhaust, no PC, and no flapper mod.
You need to find out what map is on that PCIIIr.
Which opens another can of worms.
The PCIIIr can only interface with your laptop via a 9pin serial cable. Most of us don't have serial ports on our laptops anymore, so...
You'll need to get (any cheap one will do) a usb/9pin serial cable. You probably will need to install a driver for it on your computer too. Pretty straight forward.
Actually there's a lot more, I just went thru all this with mine. If you need more help, I'll be glad to share what I know. Cause it isn't exactly easy, but well worth the effort once it's all sorted out!
SubSailor, don't you think that the kyle map would be good for him until he get's the money and a GOOD dyno shop? How do you get that map anyway?
