Greetings and PCIII question

Hello all,

Just joined and am glad to be here!

I just bought a 2002 919, it has the PCIII and Erion Racing exhaust. I have skimmed through a few of the PCIII threads here, but there's so much to learn! Much of what I was reading is greek to me at this point... I looked and looked on the DynoJet website, and there are no manuals (that I could find) for downloading.

Where would be a good place to start as far as the settings on this? I have no idea what map was loaded by the previous owner, and I don't have a PC, only Macs... Is there a way to "reset" the PCIII and then start fresh?

Many thanks in advance for any advice on this.

It seems to run pretty smooth, a bit choppy with the idle though. One other thing is a few times after starting up and then taking off it will die, like it's flooded. Could this be related?

He's in La Selva, Ca. Not sure if that is near you or not. Tell him I sent you.

Thanks async, that place is not too far away, but a couple hours... Everything I have seen on adjusting the PCIII involves a PC. Is this the only way to do it?

Unless you have a totally stock setup, the only way to really adjust the PCIII is by putting the bike on a dyno and having the map customized for your bike. I'm pretty sure Dale can do it, he has a Dyno and is a good guy.

phooey! use the buttons on the PCIII, and set it up how you like it. dynoes don't mean much to a non-competitive bike. so, you maximize it to make 2.5 more peak hp on the dyno. but 2.5 peak HP may feel like poop to the seat of your pants in daily use. what good are those 2.5hp if they come at the expense of smooth "carburetion", strong midrange, a less-stinky jacket, or decent mileage, whatever your preferences? chase what feeds your need, not some numbers.

and as LDH has implied, much to the consternation of many: any FZ1 or z1000can still kick your a$$. if you want peak hp, why did you start with a bike that carries a 20hp deficit that you'll never make up? said the guy who quite illogically drag races a 919. do as i say, not as i do. pay no mind to the man behind the screen.
