All, have an SP2 with the standard mods (flapper, pairing valve, KN air filters, Lady Bird cans and mid pipes). The supply of PC 5's is slowly dwindling.

Anyone out there with any recent experience with the PC 5? Are they worth the small $$ to purchase and install? Are maps still available? This bike is 20 years old, but such a classic. I do not plan on letting this go anytime soon...

Any advice is greatly appreciated?

I need one as well as I have the same mods as @alpha_sum

I have a dynojet shop/tuner about 5 minutes away I was going to use for a dyno tune.

They do mostly cruisers/Harleys but figured they could do pretty well on the RC.?

I'm pretty green with this though as I've never used one on my previous bikes

Maybe a silly question, with a PC5 and a competent tuner on a dyno, there's no messing with the engine for your tune (a/f) its simply programing on the PC5. Is that correct?
On a dyno , they should be doing a custom map. Why bother with a dyno to just download a generic Dynojet map ? You can do the custom map yourself with a lambda sensor and an O2 meter.

Sorry to hijack here @alpha_sum

I'm new with these programmers (obviously) but sounds like theres no ability to adjust accel pump settings on the PC6 like you can on the PC5. Please correct me if that's not accurate.?

I ended up ordering a new PC5 from Kyle Racing. He mentioned he has just a few left for the RC FWIW

My understanding is the the PC6 has been forced on DynoJet due to EPA regulations. According to Mike at Kyle Racing DJ legally had to remove all of the PC5 maps. PC3 maps can be upgraded to PC5 or as someone stated earlier there is a process for creating your own maps.

By the way, thanks to all who responded.

Are any of you guys located in the southeastern US?

I Didn't know they had done away with the pc3 maps, i hope these ones lasts a long while then as I’ve got two of them on different bikes
I'm new to this all I bought a 03 with a power commander 3 but don't think the guy new what he was doing either. .a buddy put me on right path about the Dyno jet site but can't find any maps. What do I do now or am doing wrong . It's got full yoshu pipes stock box

You don't need their generic maps if you can find someone able to map it. If you can find someone that still knows how to tune a carburetor , they can tune EFI. It really isn't magic.

I got all of the old maps on a hard drive somewhere. I’ll try and find it. Want me to send it to you when I do? I just ordered the PC6 so hopefully the maps work with it. I’m running a full hindle system with a pc2…..but it’s a piece so I’m finally upgrading after 20 years of ownership
