As a programmer by trade, I understand the ability to change the fuel injector settings by increasing, decreasing the amount of fuel at specific rpm ranges. Also as a person that has tuned carbs, I understand what benefits this can accomplish.

Is it worth it to add the Power Commander to the DL1000K6?

Just looking for reasons to spend that kind of money.

Speaking for myself, I just don't find it necessary. Once started, it seems the tinkering and adjustments just never end. I'm happy with the OEM setup.

Teka worked great for my TLR.
Might you elaborate on Teka?

I know on some cars - specifically the Mustang Cobra - you can purchase a device that will allow changes directly to the flash memory. Is there anything like that available for the 'Strom. Please excuse my ignorance on this subject as this is my first ever fuel injected motorcycle. I'm a carb person.

There sure is FL...it's called a Teka box. :lol:

You don't necessarily 'need' a Power Commander to change the settings on a fuel-injected Suzuki. You can use a Teka box device to modify the ECU's fuel injection settings. Yoshimura also has something similar, it just doesn't offer as much adjustability.

There's probably a dyno shop somewhere near you that has either the Teka or Yosh, and can remap your DL1000 if you don't like the OEM setup. You don't need to buy the Teka or Yosh, just find a shop that has one.

I had my '02 GSXR750 racebike remapped with a Teka box, not to increase peak hp but to instead "soften" the transition from off-throttle to on-throttle which helps prevent upsetting the chassis in the middle of a corner, and pick up a few hp in the midrange along the way.

It's quite cool really because a Honda, Yamaha or Kawasaki would have to buy the Power Commander, download the maps, go to a dyno, and test a bunch of maps to find a good one. Or make your own map. With an FI Suzuki, not necessary.

Get a Techlusion digital fuel optimizer, it will probably work better than anything else. I did the Yoshimura box remap, but I am still having some "sporadic" surging issues. The DFO is my next purchase!

My 2 cents. :wink:

AFM is right on, that's the teka. it has a unit that mounts on the bars so the bike can be tuned while riding. no dyno time like the powercommander dealers try and talk you into. :roll:

the techlusion is another onboard box like the powercommander, i believe.

Yes I saw a Techlusion box for the first time last month during a group ride to Yosemite, Dale Walker of Holeshot Performance had a Techlusion on his new '06 DL1000.

He said he spent quite a lot of time getting the setup perfected on his dyno, and that it was definitely worth the time invested because his bike ran way way smoother with better fuel economy than stock.

Any other information about Dale Walker's TFI Tuning Box?

I sent along an e-mail and got a response from Dale. He said he would assist in settings on the box. Price is not too bad at under $250.

techlusion

well, i had gotten a "new" ecm from suzuki to fix the low speed stumbles, popping, etc., it worked better than stock. i still had some popping at 2800 to 3900. the dealer said they didn`t have a yosh. box.i read about the tfi unit here and decided to try it. i went on their site which has a forum, copied the specs they gave a guy with the same year bike, and now i can cruise in 6th gear at 65 with no problems. the responce is better, altho i had recently took out the secondaries,that could be a factor too.my mileage increased to 47mpg, as i don`t have to run in fifth all the time. long winded i know, becman58

Walker / Techlusion TFI

Fl_Strom, I recently installed a Dale Walker provided Techlusion from Doebeck. The off idle and mid range gains were impressive and there were minimal effects on the fuel mileage.Dales' setting were dyno proofed. I believe the PC has it application. Racer who need to re tune for different track conditions and environmental constraints benefit from a PC. For the rest of us who deal with factory imposed super lean conditions, the Techlusion is the answer.
Hope this helps.

Mooneyes,

Thanks for the info.

Dang, I haven't heard "Mooneyes" in so long - brings back lots of memories!

Power Commander Help

I have just bought a 2002 DL1000 that came with a power commander. I've read about the lean OEM settings and while messing around on the PC website, I see the 'map' they provide for a stock bike is mostly also leaned out. The throttle response is a bit tighter with the PC connected, but I would imagine a map from Dynojet would tend to eliminate most other conditions provided by the factory settings. My bike has a specific lugging/vibration at 2700-3400 RPM - worse under hard acceleration. In addition there is a 'popping' at idle (sounds a bit like the knocking from a car with cheap gas).

Any help with a better PC 'map' for a stock bike?
Maybe a better or different spark plug would help?
Do you suggest just 'riching-up' the entire low end a bit?

Thanks in advance.
