Bob has a Harley on the rack that already has a custom exhaust and air intake installed. The motorcycle is not performing well because the ECM / EFI was not remapped. Bob removes saddlebags and side cover so we can see the ECM. He removes the ECM connects the Power Commander to it with a little dielectric grease and re-installs the ECM.
