This thread made me curious about how to handle a PC-V failure on the road.
I messaged Dyno-jet to find out. My question and their answer are below.
Have 2 bikes with PC-V'sNeither bike is so heavily modified that it could not be run without damage without the power commander. They are just there to improve the way it runs.If I am traveling and the PC-V were to fail on my bike must I remove it completely or will just removing the power to it or the ground to it take it out of the loop and allow the bike to run off the original mapping in the ECM so I can complete my trip?What is the easiest way to get it out of the engine management loop and get on with my trip?
Hello Joe. If the Power Commander V physically failed, you would have to completely remove it from the connections on the bike. The PCV intercepts the signals going to the injectors and takes over control of firing the injectors, so if it fails, the injectors will not fire. You would have to remove and plug everything back in as it was stock.

It only took them a few hours to answer my question which was pleasantly surprising.
