Well, I can't take it anymore so I emailed Power Commander to see if they can replace/repair this thing. There were some threads about losing their maps over the winter (read long periods without battery). I've determined my PCIII
last maybe a couple days then requires the reloading of the map. It is very obvious now to notice the PCIII
is not loaded or running correctly. All it takes is starting off in first gear, right at the 3500RPM surge, if smooth, PCIII
is loaded and running Mori map, if surges (like stock, without PCIII
) the PCIII
requires reloading. Same with cornering throttle and overall throttle smoothness, if surging and abrupt PCIII
I explained everything in my email to them and will see what happens. The odd thing is that the cell information or settings are in the PCIII
. When I retrieve the current map, the values match the map, but unless I 'Upload' the map, its as if the PCIII
isn't even there. I basically have to reload everytime I ride, with a laptop.
This has been happening since I've had this thing, 2 years? I don't know why the EPROM or whatever is not working but I want this thing replaced.
