Hey Kids,

Thought I'd start this thread to share info on which maps were working for folks.

My set up is DNA air filter, full Arrow system, stock gearing, and of course, PCIII.


I have tried a number of different maps, and have come to like one in particular. Very smooth, lots down low, and decent top end. Accelerator pump at 20/20/ 90%.

May work well for others with a similar set up. It was sent to me by Power Commander.

Since we cannot upload .djm files, e-mail me for it! :thumb:

It would be great if we could all share this stuff! When I get the bike dyno'd' I'll post it up as well!

Cheers

I'm considering a PC3 but I plan to keep the stock exhaust and intake filter. I don't want to go to the expense of a custom map and wondered if anyone has a stock bike with PC3 and Dynojet's M228-001 map.

I'm more interested in low rev fueling and response than ultimate power.

I'd love to hear impressions.

Oh yeah, Dynojet's maps can be found here...

Here is my 2 cents.

I have no experience with PCV but from what I’ve read, you can use the Akrapovic slip-on map or, you could buy the auto-tune device and there isn’t any mapping required but the auto-tune may need to "learn" a bit before it does its magic.

Using Akrapovic slip-on map may require some tweaking if you want it to be 100%.

But I would try to find out directly from either Power commander or Two Bros or someone who uses their products combined on recommendations.

RH,

I finally got my full Arrow system and a pc3. Dyojet mapped it for me. So far I am very happy. Iam an old guy that does alot of track days, has several bikes and of all the bikes that I have done mods to, I have never seen an improvement like I am getting with the V. I feel the arrow header might be the key. My V pulls very hard down low and keeps pulling to redline in 5th. This is coming from a guy that rides an Aprilia for track days. I know what low end is and I really like the change in the V. The bike is so much more rideable and I can lug it in low rpms and it just pulls away with less throttle.

Ride hard, ride safe and always wave to kids,

I would like to look at your map and compare it with the one that I have for the Arrow and a Two Bros can. Would you be interested in a map exchange?

You can't have too many toys, can you?
The CB is going to be a bobber/cafe racer wanna be.
The Model A is a resto project.
Are you handling this crappy weather okay? Too bad it's not this way all the time!

I am. I just sold my Arrow header & can to another member, so it's back to stock exhaust & header. I never did change the air filter.

I'm still running the PC-III with a M228-001 basemap. I've got the secondary butterfly's pulled, Ivan's PAIR blockoff plate, 43T rear sprocket, and a balance tube between the throttle bodies as well.

Bike runs great. I'm going to leave the PC-III on. Can't really give a good comparo to stock, as it's been a long time since I was there.. But I do feel the bike runs great at this point.

map

You can go to Dynojet web page and get the map for the Versys. I don't even have it in my puter, it was sent to me mapped.

Regards,

Murray

RH- It seems that the maps on Dynojet's site are disabled? Maybe it comes with the Akrapovic map which would probably work. If not I will call those fools. I like the idea of the autotune device, but don't know where the wideband 02 sensor would fit into my exaust. Oh yeah and don't feel like dropping 200 more dollars.

If you can't get hold of them, PM me, and I'll send you some.

If you don,t mind saying. what did the whole setup cost. I like the way the V runs,
but I get no power wheelies when I role on the throttle.After the mods does the V lift the front wheel any when accelerating. I am not crazy I dont want to ride wheelies for hundreds of yards just 10 or 15 will be plenty.I like the bike. So far all I have added is the Corbin seat and Givi Windshield. I would like a little front wheel lift without popping the clutch.
THANKS

arrow pipe and pc 3

I got mine from pipe city and it was mapped for me before it was mailed.
I think the exhaust was 500.00 and the pc was like $299.00.
I think the headers without the cross over pipe makes a big difference.
If you were close by, I would let you take mind for a ride.

Regards,

Murray:yeahsmile:

I got the full arrow with the aluminum can, Power commander 3 usb, and BMC air filter for $789.95 shipped. Good deal...i thought.
I got it from http://www.indysuperbike.com/customer/product.php?productid=119656&cat=32001&page=1. Doing stock dyno run tomorrow at school and then running home and installing. Needless to say...i got my parts today...woohoo! Can't get the "after mods" Dyno run done until next week. I got a week to try a few maps. Should be fun. I'll report soon.

Power Commander now has a custom map for the full Arrow set up with or without filter. Rode into work on it this morning, and it seems like a keeper!

I've been using that one for the last week. However I had my V dyno tuned today, they worked on it for 2 hours....runs great.....so here is the map....stronger low end in conjunction with the strong mid/top end rush of the one your trying now. Try it..you'll love it.

AWESOME!! I can't wait to try it!

I am pretty darn happy with the Arrow from PC. The 2nd gear pull is astounding, I was able to do a nice long power wheelie (wheel just a foot or so off the ground) up a slight incline right up through the rev range in 2nd gear. Very nice. If yours is an improvement, I'll be one silly grinning pimp tomorrow!

Thanks for sharing! Do you have a graph to post up? What kind of numbers were you making?
