Hootowl,
I have no idea yet of fuel consumption. Before I was getting around 42-46 average based on the stock speedometer, which may not be accurate as the stock speedo does not read correctly.

I plan on checking the milage closely and will report when the weather permits a longer ride.

Reason I was asking is that my map seems fine until I ride on the highway. After riding on the highway my low rpm throttle gets jerky again.

Does anybody know how to cure that problem?

That is not good. I'll be watching for that. I have no idea why but seems that the critical factor must be heat.

The KM601US0704501Map for stock 07-08 exhaust works good for the Akro mufflers also. Not dangerous lean, just has lower power and better mileage than the Akro map. I've used this on several bikes when the owner got sick of 30 mpg using the recommended Akro map.

A good map for the 07-08 with slip-on mufflers is the Akro map, but only if you turn the O2 sensors back on. Decent mileage, maybe in the 38 mpg range and good power.

Go through all the basics too, loose valves, throttle cable properly adjusted, TPS spot on, new plugs, clean filter, clean vacuum port jets, throttle bodies balanced with an electronic twin depression gage. Then the Akro map with the O2 turned on. 15 min idle. Then tell us how good it runs.

The map deteriorated with high speed highway riding.Could it be the o2 sensor input?

I just installed the SW7 filter but my last ride showed no difference. May be a time to try different maps.

Rich map = less power
Lean map= more power

My bike feels quicker with the stock map.

Up to a certain ratio, burning more Dino = mo power. At 35 mpg my Adv ran like rocket.

My company car is an 09' 990R
stock headers and Leo Vincents cans
all smog stuff removed
PowerCommander4
just bought a Rottweiler filter system to install


No tuners/dynos in range. Decent mechanical skills.

When I remove the OEM filter system and install the Rottweiler,

What map do you suggest for me, considering my venue and lack of experience tweaking maps and values?


My priorities are 1. Reliability. 2. Fuel economy. 3. Decent in-flight movies :^)

Friends recently asked me what I would ride if I could buy ANY motorcycle made. I smiled, waited a minute to show them I was listening and replied, "I am already riding him."

Interesting. Is there a power commander thread out there. this thread discusses tune ecu maps for the most part. With the right settings the Rott system will put you on the rev limiter quick.
You will need ear plugs.

Talk to cpr about Autotune for the power commander. In theory you wont need a tune or a tuner...it will do it for you.

Help please!!! I had a computer die on me. I was running Vista and all was good.. New computer, and Windows 8.. Needless to say "8" has been a bit of a pain...

Downloaded Tunes onto my new computer, but I think I am having driver issues. I can not get it to connect. I thought I loaded every driver listed hoping I could get it to work, but nothing. I can see the small bar on the right corner, but it will not turn green.

I am far from being a computer guy.... and if anyone can help me with this... beer is on me.



Thanks Smitty
