Hi all,

This looks so ridiculous I thought I’d share... just had a tuning session on the quiet back roads in New Zealand.
Obviously not making adjustments on the fly, just looking at AFR and the PC5 map then stopping and making adjustments. So far so good with the dreaded stumble in the lower revs gone.E94F6335-06C4-4B10-9310-BD6B8FDA8BA6.jpeg

I remember the days of tuning things like that. I recall we had to stop and swap maps in my buddies svt focus when we needed gas and they only had 89 octane lol.

Hard to make out the numbers. How much different is that than the map from Power Commander?
Quite a bit different if you are talking about the downloadable maps? I’ll post a better picture.
I decided to fit an aftermarket AFR gauge instead of paying for another Dyno session as some tuners seem more interested in max power instead of economy and ride-ability.
I’m working on the normal 3000-4000 rpm cruise speeds/revs at the moment.
Above 20% throttle was set on a Dyno @ AFR 12.9 so I haven’t bothered tuning there. These trims are providing an AFR of 13.5-14.1@ highway speeds.

My auto tune recommended some pretty big changes from the base map witch was supposed to be for a full exhaust.

One tip that dynojet gave me over the phone. Do a few runs accepting the changes then leave it alone unless the bike changes. Don't chase the perfect tune. They told me that can cause problems.

Hi! MikeinNZ, what equipment does your motorcycle have? mine is from 2010, equipped with an arrow manifold + akrapovic outlet + unifilter air filter + pcV + o2 to optimize and thanks to the help of Jaxon I succeeded in obtaining / making a mapping close to my expectations

Hi SubZero,
Mine is the same year with pretty much the same gear minus the O2 optimizer.
I have O2 delete plugs fitted as the closed loop area at 2500-3000 was hopelessly lean. I had a dyno session a few months back with the O2 sensors installed. It was amazing how lean the ecu was trying to run in closed loop fighting the +ve trims we were adding. Auto tune was out of my price range so eBay O2 delete plugs were the go.
I have it running sweet as now. I’ll keep the AFR gauge on it for a few weeks and tweak it where it needs to be tweaked. I’m trying to keep it fairly lean to keep some economy but finding a safe AFR limit is proving a bit tricky.
I would like to see your map if your willing to share?
