OK. Good to hear.05Train said:Near as I can tell, it's the only way to address the VEs and the timing on our motors. If you use the AT-100, you'll have full adaptability of the VEs in real time too. The only downside to the PC is that it's a piggyback unit that intercepts the ECM's signals and modifies the instructions to the injectors and the timing. Not really the best way to do things, but as I said, I believe it's the only option we've got.
You're correct, the PCV uses the AT-100 module, not the PCIII. FWIW, get the PCV and run the auto tune. Spend some time and get the timing sorted out, then let the AT figure out your VEs, and you'll be good to go.apehair said:OK. Good to hear.
Regarding the AT-100, it appears that it only works with the PC V, which is not available for the RT1150. Or did I miss something: http://www.powercommander.com/powercommander/Products/AutoTune/powercommander_autotune.aspx
I will respectfully disagree with you. Any EPA-compliant vehicle will benefit from a tune. The OEMs have their ECM programming biased towards emissions, fuel efficiency, and longevity. I would all but guaranty you that with a tuning interface and a couple of hours, I could have your bike running smoother and more powerfully than it ever has.hopz said:I think you are hunting with the wrong dog.
I would not recommend use of a Power Commander. And certainly not going there first.
First get the bike in basic good tune. Clean Air Filter, new spark plugs, precise Valve Adjustment, anal retentive throttle body synch... then if it still surges you have a place from which to start.
I am an old H-D guy too and I know what you want and why you want it but follow the first principles first... I have been on BMW now for a long time. I am more active on the technical threads of boards a whole lot bigger than this one. I have never heard of anyone needing or using a PC to solve a fundamental problem that will almost certainly be solved with a good tune-up.
I agree wholeheartedly.hopz said:But, and to me its a big butt. Here is a guy who has just got his first BMW, an RT that is 10 years old. He has a Remus exhaust system and some other non-standard parts. It surges.... If it were me, I would put it all back to stock, fix the surge problem with a good tune-up then go from there.
