PC V Help PLEASE!
I'm having a strange problem with my bike I'm hoping maybe someone here can help because after 2 days of trouble shooting I'm about to give up. The bike is an 08 Jackpot. I have recently added a Lloydz intake, and the PCV with auto tune. The bike already had a stage 1 shotgun exhaust with reflash and I also added monster baffles at the same time I added the intake and PCV. Now onto my problem. When the bike gets warmed up it dies. This happened after adding the PCV. I had ridden the bike before the install and all was well. Now the kicker is the bike will continue to run and never die if I leave the computer hooked up to the PCV and supply it constant power through the usb cable. When the bike dies it does not stumble or act up in any way it's just like hitting the kill switch. If I turn off the key and let the bike sit and reset it will start back up and then die a few minutes later. So far I have tried updating to the latest firmware (not sure if it took), removed checked and reinstalled all connections (all seemed ok), checked fuel line for kinks and obstructions, calibrated the throttle through the pc software. It seems as though the pcv is just losing power all of the sudden. It will be running fine and then the pcv will cut out, the green light goes off and the bike dies. My next step is possibly trying a new battery. I put a multimeter on the battery as the bike was running, but there was never a drop in voltage or any sign that there is a problem with battery power to the bike. Could it be possible that my battery is getting bad and the pcv and auto tune are just putting too much stress on the system? I did take the battery to the auto parts store to be tested and they said it was ok, but the kid didn't really seem to know what he was doing. Is that even possible since the pc doesn't get it's power supply directly from the battery? Is it possible that I just got a dud? If anyone has any troubleshooting ideas I'd sure like to hear them.
