Power Commander V and the Screamin Eagle Pro Turner

Q: What is the advantage of one over the other, between the Power Commander V and the Screamin Eagle Pro Turner? I got both when I bought a 2011 Road King Classic. The bike has been mapped with the HD Screamin Eagle turner with Hi flow air cleaner and SuperTrapp exhaust.
Which way should I go. I know if I go PCV I will have to take out the map from SCE Pro Turner. Any help will be appreciated.

A: If your m/c is running strong with the Super Tuner; wouldn’t recommend changing a thing.
The Super Tuner and the Power Commander V are both great products. As far as differences between the two, read through these links, or play with what you have. Instructions are easily available on line.

      Hi Daniel, When I was young, the commercial “How many licks to the center of a Tootsie Pop” played all the time. The Turtle took forever and the Owl did it in 3. So, if you keep it stock and maintain it like you should 100,000 miles or more. Start changing components and you change the original design so maybe less. You drive fast and beat on it less, take it easy and ride to ride – a long time. It depends.

        i had an 06 Ultra Classic EG. I had the 95 stage 2 installed before delivery at the dealer. I add V&H true duals and slip-ons, a S&E breather and a power commander. When I traded it in for a 14 Ultra Limited, it had 127,783 miles. It still ran great. I am not an “easy rider”. Take care of the bike and it will last.

    I was told by the HD Dealer and local MC Shop; The Screaming Eagle writes directly to the factory ECM, the PCV sets on top of the ECM and fakes it out to make it perform the way you want. Don’t beat the messenger, it is just what i was told.

      Hi James, Might be like cats and dogs living together. They would fight to see which one controls the ECM if that is even possible. Have you tried other maps on your Power Commander? That would be a good place to start. The Power Commander is a great product and should be easy to re-map with your computer. Check their website for free maps that match your set-up and the videos on our site. http://www.fixmyhog.com/video/custom-efi-mapping-install-001442/

      Hi, Jack. The only way to most accurately dial in your specific set up, would be to have a tech tune your bike on a Dyno. However, there is nothing wrong with trying some trial & error on your own. Make changes in small increments and see how your bike responds. Keep an eye on your spark plugs. Reading them can help you determine an overly rich or lean condition.

    Q:
    I have a 20006 HD Heritage Softail My power commander blowing a fuse and keeping fuel injection from working. Disconnected power commander, fuse and fuel injection issue resolved, but bike runs rich. Disconnected battery for a half a day thinking it would allow sys to reset, but bike still running horribly. Any ideas?
    A:

    If you are only blowing a fuse when the Power Commander is Plugged in; either the Power Commander harness has a dead short, or the Power Commander, itself, is no good.
    Thouroughly inspect your Power Commander harness and plug.

    My mechanic installed a power Command V in my 2007 ultra Classic. Now the bike wont start. He still has it at his shop but what should he or we be looking at? Please?

      Hi Mark, That is a tough one for us to answer. If it ran before the Power Commander install it has to do with the install and map. We recommend contacting Power Commander, Dyno Jet, for potential issues.

        My mechanic told me that my problem was a loose cable on the starter that was causing my bike not to start.

    Install a Thunder-Max and all your problems are solved. Load the map that is closest to what your are running (i.e. pipes, air cleaner, cams) and the T-Max tunes it’s self. You can say goodbye to the dyno runs.
