Hey everyone. I just picked up a 03 DL1000 that is bone stock except for a PCV. I have seen this is a common issue on these bikes and I downloaded the map from power commander, but it didn’t help. Does anyone out there have any custom maps that will eliminate this issue? Thanks in advance!
Yes there are some maps around, look at the Power Commander Stickey, keep in mind the 03 is different than say a V2 like my 06. Different computers. 3,000 rpm is below the torque curve. The engine pulls best above 7K. So, there isn't much power at that 3000 rpm you refer to.
If your fuel flow is in spec you can enrich the fuel map some, but it will only do so much. My bike shifts best above 4500 rpm, no need to lug it.
Make sure there are no vacuum leaks, throttle bodies are synced, test port caps seal good, TB boots tight, good air filter etc.
The engine likes rpm, it cruises best at 4,000 and above. On the interstate I run 4500 in 6th when I can, or run 5,000 in 5th so I can have good acceleration in fast traffic. I have 17/43 sprockets.
I guess the 03 is like my 06 above 4th gear. Suzuki uses the timing to limit power above 4th gear. I installed a Gman TRE to make the bike think it's in 4th all the time. It works, cut my shifting down. Runs much better on the highway now.
