Default PCV/autotune

Ok let's try this again..just want to know if this combo can just be installed and left alone is it still going to tune the bike to my future changes or do I have to manually put maps in..I am stock now but have K&n coming soon and will be gutting my exhaust soon as well


Thank you

If you install it with the stock map it will adjust the fuel on the fly and allow you to have better optimization. If you save the trim table to the PCV from the Auto Tune you will have a better base map and the Auto Tune will perform less work when you ride but will still adapt to riding conditions and log changes so you can in the future update that base map.

From the Auto tune portion of Dyno Jet's website:
Once installed, the Auto Tune kit monitors the fuel mixture (by installing the included Wide Band O2 sensor in the exhaust). It then sends this information to the Power Commander V and automatically corrects it while you ride. Each map that we offer has preset Air/Fuel ratio values included that we find to be the best overall settings. This lets you simply plug in the unit and let it do the work. For Harley Davidson models we ever monitor and adjust each cylinder individually for increased precision as on these models required fueling can vary significantly between the front and rear cylinder.

Cool that was my primary idea plug it all in and let it do its thing as I do mine (exhaust and air intake) with out having the need of dyno shop

I have a 2011 XR and I recently put on the no-baffle mufflers from Witchdoctor. They sound great and the performance didn't really change, but the problem is that they're really loud during deceleration and even "burp" when I let off the throttle to shift up.

Would a PCV-AT setup fix this problem?

Yes. It would. You could also try the Lloydz IAV valve either alone or with the PCV but you should be able to tune out most of the popping with the PCV.

I imagine you have already checked your exhaust flanges to make sure they aren't leaking.

So I'm pretty new to all this, but it's not a loud popping like a backfire, it's more of a loud gurgling (is that a word?). Is that the same as what you're calling popping?

I like how you say "imagine" rather than 'assume". We all know what happens when we assume. LOL

So I installed the mufflers per the instructions and I've never done anything like that before. Can you give me more details about the flanges so that I can check them?

Thanks so much for your help!

Yes but you should at least download the correct map the addon's you install and clear the fuel chart to give it a running start.

If you are asking if it's completely plug and play. No; but it isn't difficult either. A little bit of a learning curve but not too bad. Anyone who can navigate a smart phone or the Internet should be able to do those basic things and then accept the trims from time to time. Probably a video or 10 on it on YouTube.

Hey Bob,

I got my D&D's, PC5, Auto-Tune, IAV, Adjustable Timing Gear, and Lloyds High Flow air filter installed yesterday.

I only have 100 miles on the bike and havn't really pressed it past 3,000 rpm's yet. I got one small pop yesterday. Other than that everything was great.

Is there any advantage or reason to bring your bike to get dyno'd while running the auto tune?

Like to fine tune the timing or something like that? Or should I just leave it be and break it in as is?

2013 Metallic Flamed XC, D&D exhaust, Lloyds High Flow Filter, Lloyds Idle Air Valve, Lloyds Adjustable Timing gear, PC5, Auto-Tune. VM1 cams. JL Audio M400/4, Polk's MM651's and MM691's. Gorilla Bagger Bars, 6x9 saddlebag lids, 21" WitchDoctor Revolver wheel. Too many extra's to list!!!!

2006 Victory Hammer 106 Stroker kit, lloyds Torque Tubes, Bassani 2 into 1 exhaust, PC3. "Traded for 13' XC"

No real need for a dyno tune if your running auto tune..unless your trying to to squeeze everything out of her. But if you do decide to dyno tune I would wait till your break in is done.

EXACTLY....once you download a couple of updates after a couple of rides, then the "range" of adjustment will be within the parameters and there will be no need to download any more...unless you change something.
