POWER COMMANDER V -INSTALLATION PHOTOS 2014 C5
« on: November 14, 2014, 06:04:40 AM »
Here's a fairly detailed hit at the process of installing the power commander v on my bike.



once out of the box this is what you get



PCV was a lot smaller than I expected when compared to a box of matches



once stretched out you can break it up into 3 section.
1.  02 delete &coil
2.  Parts around the fuel injection
3. Crank position sensors



I've had enough trouble with electric so first off I decided to remove the battery completely. in my case better safe than sorry



first off tank removal.

1. front and rear tank bolts



2 unclip the fuel sender cable


3 fuel line hose - good tip here from GHG - hit this with low heat from a hairdryer for about 2 minutes then unscrew and it slides right off the plastic tip with ease



4. don't do what I did and then try and pull the tank off - it got caught up in a wiring plug connector near the far side of the fuel pump and caught me by surprise. lucky I didn't snap it in half!



now down to this



PCV Location
following good advise from GHG I decided the fuse box was the place for it



inside the fuse box - pretty clean on the new models



I had to remove several relays to get at the rear rubber plug



cut out this section with a knife



then force all the wiring through the hole. first effort failed I pushed the big plug in first and then couldn't get the others through. so I started again . longest braided line first and worked them all through the dis membered rubber grommet



this is the bustardo which caused all the drama.



pcv in place



I then ran the wiring harness out the rear of the fuse box up along the side of the solo seat and tied it in position









connected all the new plugs to the area around the fuel injectors - but you know what there called







then the remaining lead to the brank position sensor located under the rear 2 engine mounts. strangely mine appeared very untidy here so once I had fitted them I wrapped them again in black electrical tape and tucked them away or back down that slot!...lol






Header pipe next
undo the sensor and tossed it on the ground. then fitted the new plug









Following that I fitted the gas tank and fitted the fuel line  and the new negative  lead from the power commander to the battery and all looked good to me so kicked it over.
Kicked over immediately but through a CEL. Turned it off and tried another 3 or 4 times - same again. first off I thought I knew I shouldn't have friggin touched the bustardo.
Back inside I was looking for trouble shooting info and found this



wtf is this I thought! maybe for the computer box - I tried to connect it to the one in the centreit in there-6 prongs into 4 don't go...lol



Back inside I was sitting there in a very pissed off mode of thought. wtf have I done this time!...lol anyway half through a cup of coffee I thought what I had done last on the bike.....the 02 sensor had nothing attached to it once I had removed the lead.
remember the tank is back on the bike, so out with a torch to shine into the tank cavity. looked like a perfect match for this plug.
got the wife to get in there and plug it in and the rest is history



kicked over the bike and light out immediately and sounded better too. after that I tidied up all the wiring then took it for that positive test run.
did notice on the return at idle it was a bit quicker but apart from that fine.
hit the starter button today and an immediate first press start so that's a positive and later in a day or so I will run it out the road again.
so that's the installation in pretty full detail. whatever way you look at it -it filled in a 10 minute read...lol





pulled the wiring right along the frame rail to the coil area and connected the plugs

Superb, wb! Thanks for the running photolog!  ;D
Rather than have a homeless person for the holidays, I decided to stick with ham.

WB
Is the original ECU what I see pictured in the electrical toolbox?

the pcv is held against the original ecu via some Velcro tape which is included with the power commander.

WB,
Nice job!  The little plug threw me off for a bit as well until I decided to read the instruction manual for a change :)

The PC-V instructions are surprisingly good...even had a few photos!
