I have a '99 FI Road King with a big bore kit with flat top pistons, SE 211 cam & Samson true duals with SperTrapp slipons. I put a Power Commander module on it and can not find a map which will keep it from popping back through the intake (a lot!)when cold. It seems to run OK when the motor finally warms up. There is nothing radical about what I have done to the motor and HD did the work. I wonder if I might have a bad Power Commander. Has anyone run accross this problem??

Not a PC but...............

General
Harley-Davidson Motor Company has learned that Twin-Cam
88 Screamin Eagle Ignition Modules could, under certain
conditions, shut off without warning. This sudden loss of
power could cause a loss of control of the motorcycle and
result in an accident and death or serious injury. Harley-Davidson
has voluntarily declared this a defect related to motor
vehicle safety (Campaign 0103) to allow us to formally recall
all potentially affected Screamin Eagle Ignition Modules.
Dealer Action in the interest of the safety of our mutual customers and as
required by law, DO NOT sell any of these affected kits or
modules you may have in stock. In addition, DO NOT deliver
any motorcycle with these kits or modules installed on them
until the recall service has been performed.
Because Harley-Davidson has no record of who may have
purchased or received the affected kits at the retail level,




Vehicles Involved
All 1999 and later Twin-Cam 88 powered vehicles equipped
with Screamin Eagle Ignition Modules (listed below) pack-aged

LOL.

Must be pretty bad when ignition modules get washed onto EFI bikes.

The bike has a PC II and a leaky intake was my thought. Had it back to the HD shop that built the engine and they resealed the intake. No effect. Still sneezing until completely warmed up. The HD tech says to take the PC out and stick with an HD Stage II chip. I can't buy that. I have not heard of PC's causing problems, They should improve the runability because of the infinite mapability. Still scratchin my head!

Power Commanders do not start working until the bike has reached full operating temperature. I believe 284 degrees is the temperature. I had the same problem with my 2000 screaming eagle. Installing the ECM recalibration worked for me in conjunction with my PCII. Hope this helps.
