As a matter of fact, getting the Stage 1 download from the dealer could make it more difficult to use the PCIII without a dyno tune. If you use the PCIII with a stock ECU, the powercommander web site lists many available maps. There are currently none available for your '06 model with the stage 1 ECU. Hope that makes sense--check out their site and it should be clear. To sum it up, use one or the other.Wide1 said:2006 Ultra
Im adding VH duals, Screaming eagle AC and PCIII. Do i need to get ECM stage 1 flash from dealer or does the PCIII eliminate the need for it?
That is a great point, which I have not considered. Is is common for the PCIII to fail?jlelliott said:Something to consider: With your setup, the bike won't run well with the stock ECM if your PCIII takes a dump in the middle of no man's land. On the other hand if you have the dealer flash and the PCIII fails in the middle of nowhere you can unplug it and the re-flashed ECM will get you home with no problems. Also, the re-flash raises the redline well above that of the stock ECM.......not sure if the PC III does that or not. These factors may be unimportant to you but perhaps you want to factor them into your decision making.
Thanks, thats reassuring.........since I just bought 2 of them.GareyD said:We've installed over 100 Power Commanders and have only had one returned with a problem and that was the owners fault...he had cut the wiring when he had rerouted it.
The new PCIII USB can have the rev limiter raised to 6200 rpm...the dealer should be able to do it for you.
