Will 1 power commander tune 2 KFX 450's? me and my buddy just bought a 450 each and were wondering if we could buy one pc to do the 2 bikes. Thanks in advance.

I am not a pro at this but, my understanding is that the pc is configured and placed inline and that it is required to remain there once removed the bike would go back to stock settings. It is like putting a chip in your vehicle when it is in your performance is enhanced when it is out your performance is normal. I am sure someone else will chime in and validate this. So I would say no you will have to buy one for each quad.

Sorry

The Power Commander is a fuel injection adjustment module that plugs "inline" with the bikes' stock ECU and has the ability to add or remove fuel throughout the entire RPM range. This offers the ultimate in tuning and Air/Fuel ratio adjustment. The PC uses original equipment style connectors so that no splicing or cutting of the harness is required. Most installations take less than 15 minutes, some as little as 5 minutes. Changes are made to the bikes fuel via the PC's onboard microprocessor. Using this technology the Power Commander offers a large area of adjustment without making any permanent changes to the bikes factory ECU. Changes are made by making adjustments to a "Map" that is loaded into the unit. Removing the PC returns the bike to its previous stock condition. The Power Commander is the best EFI tuning module available.

yeah i just got mine in today and will be installing it sometime this week after work. i will let you know how easy it goes and how it feels with the map for stock pipe minus the cork. I got a dasa on its way when it gets done and will have to change it for that too. Will give a good ride report afterwards

I Program hot rods, sports cars and trucks for a living and I found it odd that there isnt a product that will help with the tables for spark tuning. It seems from what I hear that you can only do fuel, is that right? And does anyone know if theres a way to change spark for advancement. Theres alot you can do when it comes to changing the spark advance and how much to retard the spark to gain HP, Torque and fuel economy at the same time.

Let me know if anyone has any experience with this stuff on atv's. Ive never tuned a atv before and dont want to buy an inferior product so let me know whats the best.

I dont think these things have 3D ignitions, they are much simpler than cars and street bikes.

IMO....The combo of open loop and a relatively simple digital ignition system doesn't give you much to play with.....so fuel is usually enough.

Thing is, Kawa have carried on about this 32bit ECU and at the moment know one seems to know if it's just a smarter LTR or if it actually has other tunable abilities. There is a genuine Kawasaki adjustable ECU with software and all the crap (not an interceptor like the Power Commander) but its $1000. Still dont know if it allows adjustment of the ignition.

sounds like to me that power commander is jipping us for another 360 dollars. one box should be able to control fuel, air and timing. Am i wrong or are they just trying to get more money out of us?
