Wanting to get an Autotune for my 2008 - what am I after?

Hey all,

Looking to finally throw down some money on the PC autotune module for the Versys. Thing is-- i'm a bit lost on what I need. Do I need a single sensor, dual sensor? I'm also a bit hazy on what's the difference between the base PC-V and the PC-V Fuel&Ignition.

And lastly - is this what i'm after?

Dynojet Research Auto Tune for Power Commander V - 2WheelPros.com

Just curious- since I don't wanna throw down cash on something i'll have to ship back.

Do a search on this forum. I have posted my PCV+Autotune setup.

You need a PCV for your bike
Your 2008 Versys will probably be PCV (without the F&I) from memory on DynoJets site.
You get Autotune 200 (single o2 sensor)
You then need to weld the supplies bung onto the LHS lower part of the header in front of the exhaust.

Buy it from Motomummy.com
When I did it - it was cheaper than other sites.

question is why YOU need it> does your bike have stock o2 sensor?
I needed it to cure the stock 2012 ECU and o2 sensor jerky me around while commuting in 2-3000rpm

Thanks Gigitt- already have a PC-V, and snagged the AT-200 from Motomummy. One thing i'm still up in the air about is the best placement for the O2 bung. Should it be right at where both exhausts meet up (collector), at around the "2 o clock" position? Seems like the wire would route easiest through the lower right 'bash plate" back towards the middle of the bike from there.

Keep looking for a write-up with pictures, but coming up empty.

Here is mine



Note that the sensor is position not at 9 o'clock but more like 10 o'clock it has to point down into the exhaust

My bike already had stock i2 sensor so all I had to do was unscrew it and put autotune sensor in.

Just note how I have positioned the plug and my drain hoses. It is a huge plug and cannot fit anywhere else!!! And no you don't get longer cables. This is a stock Bosch sensor.

Yes it is on the front pipe of the exhaust. The auto tune kit should come with a weld on bung. Just drill a hole and weld it in position.
