Maps for Power Commander
I have a K1200RS 2002. I have had the head ported and a custom made exhaust to increase flow. I am also running a Rhinewest chip.
The power commander has certainly made a difference since I fitted it two weeks ago but I have not had the bike dyno'd. The one thing I have noticed is the fuel comsumption has reduced to 40mpg from 47 - 50 and the idle speed has risen to 1600. I assume the idle can be sorted by reducing the mix by a percentage, on zero throttle position between 1500 - 500 rpm within the map.
Most of my journeys are on motorways at 80 - 90mph, so I expect the throttle must be at around 10 -15% open. Does anyone have a map that would allow good fuel economy on long runs but still keep the perfomance when needed?
I have loaded the Power Commander software onto my PC and there are two standard maps available but neither take into account the Rhinewest chip or the ported head. Can I adjust the maps by logging the data on a run and then + or - the fuel?
