PCIII throttle setting

Has anyone had to adjust the throttle setting on their bike with the power commander? Poorboy recommended to adjust it a few percent and it makes a huge difference but I'm not sure if there's a certain setting I can just set it to or if I have to adjust it on the bike at idle.
Never used the power commander software before but I'm really excited to get the hang of it because it looks great.

probably what is ment is a throttle sync... so the power commander knows the full open and full closed position of the throttle boddies.

yes you must sync your throttle.

Ok, new question I need help with. While wiring up my power commander I was at the part where you plug the red connectors into the 2 pin opaque ones in the rear harness (steps 9 and 10) problem is where the red male end plugs into the opaque female end, those wires are disconnected because of my integrated tail light and I don't even remember where they plugged into to begin with.

Has anyone else run into this problem and/or figured out alternate wiring? (I know its kind of comlicated) Or can someone tell me what the two wires run to, I know it's a pain in the ass being under the tail :\

I have a picture I took, looks like the wires are solid brown and green with yellow but it's kind of worn and hard to see, was thinking of piggy backing them to the plug on the tail bulb with the same color wiring...suggestions?

Help!

you should be able to connect it back to the wire off of the harness thats for the plate light. just find where you cut it at and tie in at that point.

That part ran directly to the plug in the harness, I'm going to look at schematics tomorrow and figure it out...supposed to be near 70 here in jersey all day so I may have to get too sick for work in the morning

ok so all you need to do is find a connector that plugs into the harness and solder it onto the cut end of the wire. tada, done!

I'm of the opinion if you are fitting a PC111 you should allow the $ for a expert to dyno map it specifically to your bike to get maximum benefit. Do it once and do it properly.

So it turns out that part of the plug isn't even needed, the schematic just sent it to a bulb, which you were right about pvster...lucky thing is the pc3 picked up its power from the other connection and didn't need that second jumper, whose sole purpose was to power that bulb.

Synced throttle and all and holy sh*t the bike flies. So happy, rode all afternoon with the biggest smile on my face, the 900rr map poorboy turned me on to is legit.
