Ducati of Las Vegas opened up with a banger on March 3rd, 2017. Bikes were lined up around the corner to see who had the most horsepower. It was fun times for everyone and great to see the community of riders in Las Vegas come together and enjoy the food, bikes, people, and to get the opportunity to watch around 40 bikes compete on the dyno.
WORCS Racing held their first annual SXS World Finals in Primm, NV. With roughly 150 SXS’s racing on the stadium style track there was plenty of competition to watch and this high speed track was all about speed and horsepower. Dynojet supported the race teams with dyno runs, allowing the racers to get an inside look of their SXS’s dyno runs, horsepower, and RPMs. It was great to meet some of our customer’s already using the Power Vision CX and help out a few of the racers during the race.
Once the rain cleared Chuck was there to run the dyno for the race teams that were looking for a few extra horsepower.
Installed and flashed a RZR XP1000 with our flash tuning Power Vision CX.

SEMA 2016 was of course full of some of the most unique builds in the world from performance to off-road. This year we released the new Power Vision CX, a flash tuning device for Polaris SXS’s and Indian and Victory Motorcycles. The Power Vision CX comes preloaded with tunes developed by Dynojet that improve the stock tune as well as tunes for aftermarket exhausts, intakes, and turbo. Tuners can open the DJT files in C3 software to make custom tunes as well.
Also released at SEMA, our new for 2017 Gyro Vision LED Lights revolutionize off-road lighting! Gyro Vision gives 30 degree movement in all directions, they move with the vehicle’s steering, and a built in gyro keeps the lights level, pointing the high intensity LED’s in the direction your vehicle is driving. A joystick lets you override automatic steering mode, using Gyro Vision as a spotlight, and you can lock the lights in position with a simple push of the joystick. This lets you use them as a work light when dismounting your vehicle such as clearing a obstacle or helping a buddy get unstuck on the trail. They are a universal light and can be installed on any vehicle using common light mounts. Up to five lights can be used together.

Speedys Motorcycle Shop came by Dynojet all the way from Brisbane. We got a chance to ask them about their recent 2013 Ducati Diavel build.
How did the bike feel to the customer after the mods?
“Fast! Still scares the sh^t out of me…”
What was the most difficult part of the build?
The hardest part of the build was making the turbo removable back to a standard bike should it ever need doing. Also due to room we contacted our fabricator and good friend Craig from Extreme Custom Engineering. He designed the plenum and pipe work based on our requirements. This bike has been so popular we have been receiving calls from Asia and the USA inquiring about this bike.
We also added;
Garrett GT28 turbo
Turbo Smart BOV
Bosch 3 Bar map sensor
VDO drain back pump.
Endless amounts of Aeroflow fittings.
Custom loom for pump – all Milspec TEFL
Power Commander V
Ported the injectors to increase volume by 44%
Modified fuel pump.
We custom mapped this on our Dynojet 250 RT. The process like with anything Dynojet is easy and flawless. The solid build on the 250RT along with PowerCore means that any boosted bike is a pleasure and simple tune.
Can you believe it? Is winter 2016-2017 nearly here??? Well, Judging by the 7” of wet snow we received as shown here in town Bozeman on the 11th of October – we’re excited to say YES winter is definitely coming!! It was also quite nice to be riding single track dirtbike on Labor Day at 9000’ through a few inches of snow across rocky slopes in early September to wet the whistle awaiting winter…
ALL THINGS SNOW
This past snow year was extremely plentiful in Montana (especially having one of the deepest December snowfall’s ever to play in), and thus kept our minds focused on all-things-snow through the winter months and into new development surrounding the 2017 models. So of course we’ll start with the tried and true “oldies-but-goodies” that have proven themselves year after year for the Dynojet Team.
Arctic Cat riders receive our attention each season bringing new or improved products to the table. From the 4000 series up through the 9000 series, the Power Commander line of products is available to fuel each and every one of these machines. Whether opting for the fuel only PCV controller 11-021 for the 6000 lineup, or the top-of-the line 11-013-PTI unit showcased on the Supercharged/Turbocharged 8000 series rides with Fuel+Ignition+Boost Fueling control, each of these help get you to the top. As always, each Power Commander V is compatible with accessories such as the Autotune to monitor and tune your machine as you ride to keep your engine safe in real-time, or the POD-300 digital display to view and log live data as you ride, adjust fuel trims in the field, or trigger programmable warning lights when exceeding your specified parameters. Oh….and don’t worry….we’ve got the Thundercat covered as well.
Polaris sleds are privy to the widest selection of products available for any brand in the mix. Starting with the Power Commander FC, this unit applies to any CFI4, CFI2, and AXYS machines availing the same fueling adjustment range as the PCV – but for a low, entry level price point. Jump up a level to the Power Commander V and provide yourself with a -100 / +250% range of adjustment, switch between 2 stored maps on the fly (especially helpful when one must stop to re-fuel at a non-ethanol vs ethanol gas station or for Nitrous installs ) and fuel for changes based on engine temp or pressure analog channels. This fuel-only setup is also available in the tasty Dual-PTI flavor to adjust fueling for boosted applications automatically catering fueling based on changes in elevation for any boost level. One additional level brings in Fuel + Ignition Control for all CFI2 or AXYS based sleds. This provides the same fuel adjustment range as the traditional PCV or PCFC, but also adds in the ability to alter timing up to +/- 20*. Want a controller that combines Fuel + Ignition + Boost fueling in one box? You bet – the Power Commander V line covers it all!
The existing Ski-Doo product line remains unchanged provide control over the Direct injectors on every XP or XS or XM based machine. The specialized units have produced some of the best running N/A ETec 800’s on the snow including the formidable 177HP builds with pipe/porting/intake mods when paired with the PCV. The 1200 4 Stroke is also in the mix as well with products available for the 4Tec triple ranging from the PCFC up through PCV-PTI for un-naturally aspirated applications. Late last season the 2016+ 1200 4Tec received an updated plug/play version of the PCV to accommodate the new throttle body system as well as the old style.
NOW ENTER SOME NEW GEAR!! The All New Ski-Doo ETec 850. What an exciting machine. Dynojet was lucky enough to get eyes on this phenomenal new sled in February and invested much testing/riding time as last season progressed to perfect products for this new Doo. The new Power Commander V for the 850 ETec will control the booster injectors with the same range of -100/+250% providing all of the necessary of fuel for the bolt on hard parts/big bore guys and those sporting nitrous kits. Also available is the PCV-PTI line for the 850 receiving the Dual-PTI treatment automatically fueling your sled as pressure conditions change. Watch for these to be hitting the hills in force this winter!!
Ooooh… the Yamaha’s… a 180+HP stock machine… triple throttle body turbocharged 998cc fire breathing powerplant… you can bet we were excited to see this sled run, and run hard. Keep your ears to the ground awaiting some nifty new gear developed for the Sidewinder and Thundercat machines. The Viper, Phazer, Apex and Vector machines are also privy to our extensive product line ranging from the introductory PCFC, through the PCV and even stackable Ignition Modules. We know those 4 Stroke mills love boost so Dynojet offers full fueling control for those running aftermarket or factory turbo setups featuring adjustments dedicated to the primary injectors plus pigtailed out a secondary injection branch on the Vipers. 12PSI of boost is in reach when kicking all the injectors up a notch to crank out some serious ponies. But don’t stop there — add in the optional Ignition module to raise your rev limiter on all Yamaha sleds, and control spark timing based on intake pressure for the boost-aholics.
Does anyone enjoy riding Snowbikes? Here at Dynojet, we love the whole sport. So much so, that Dynojet was even fortunate enough being asked to be the title sponsor in the TRAX Snowbike Revolution Film put out by Jaya Lange! Props to Jaya for producing a very well put together film as always….The sport of Snowbiking is one we are firmly dedicated to and continue to build support for all riders of all bikes or kits. For any color of bike you wish to throw a leg over, and whichever kit you bolt underneath it, we’ve got you covered with Jet Kits for carbureted bike riders, or an entire line of fuel controllers for anyone on a fuelie bike. Controlling fueling and timing is available for select dirtbikes combined into one box producing, in some cases, an astounding 7HP gain on a KTM machine!! Want to spray nitrous at your bike? Look no further than the PCV – I thoroughly loved mine all last season and provided just the right amount of power kick when I needed it! If you’re in the mood for boost, Dynojet also offers our PTI (Pressure / Temperature Input) line for each brand as well. We’re thrilled to a staple in the performance applications from many turbo kit manufacturers, and if you’re interested in cranking up the boost requiring more fuel delivery via a secondary injector, Dynojet has that covered on the dirt/snowbikes as well.
Trax: The Snow Bike Revolution
POWER VISION CX
Speaking of dirt talk, let’s shift gears and talk dirt rigs with not just 2 wheels, but how about 4 wheels…. Introducing the Power Vision CX. The Power Vision CX is a performance tuner and data monitor for Polaris Off-Road Vehicles, Indian and Victory Motorcycles that offers the latest flash tuning technology, real-time data monitoring, and other industry exclusive features. The Power Vision CX product Suite includes a handheld flash device, vehicle interface cable, and Power Core (Windows PC based tuning and data logging application). The device features the ability to flash a stock or performance tune to any Polaris off-road toy, display vehicle data channels in real-time, read and clear trouble codes, and is weather resistant for use in all conditions while remaining visible in direct sunlight. Whether you wish to alter your fueling and timing curves for more performance or to suit modifications, or adjust the speed/rev limiters, up the boost levels on the XP Turbo, or change when the fans turn on/off, and anything in between, the Power Vision CX has you totally covered.
The C3 mobile app was a big hit last season. Dynojet availed tuning for Power Commander products right from your phone. This app is available for free download on Google Play, enabling users to send any map stored on your phone to the device, adjust fuel trims in the field, calibrate throttle position, and many more things all from the palm of your hand! Now, if you’re in the mood for adjustments while out riding, simply send a new map to your fuel controller from your Phone, or (if in cell service range) give a quick call to your supporting dealer who can email you a new map and load that one! It requires a USB-On-The-Go adapter to link the port on your phone to the Power Commander V.
Well there you have it folks! We’ve been some busy beavers around the shop here at Dynojet, and can’t wait for Mother Nature to unleash a forcefully snowy winter. Enjoy what is left of fall, good luck to those hunting game for the big-one, get ready for snow, and be safe out there! Check out www.dynojet.com for information on our entire line of products.

Bonneville Salt Flats: Dusty Schaller claimed two new records on board Dynojet’s 2007 Honda CBR600rr in the APS-BF class at 201.332 MPH, and on the 2011 Harley Davidson Softail in the M-PBF class at 167.435 MPH.
The Honda CBR600RR went 197.08 MPH on the first pass and 205.578 MPH on the second pass for an average of 201.332 MPH. At Dynojet we utilized the Power Commander V, Secondary Fuel Module, Ignition Module, Quick Shifter, and Autotune on the CBR600rr.
“This bike was a handful to ride and we definitely have some chassis/bodywork issues, but the engine ran awesome. Looking at the data we only got to about 60% throttle and 13000rpm so there is a lot left in this bike. The new record in the 650cc APS-BF (altered partial streamliner – blown fuel) is 201.329mph. We still hold the fastest sit on 650cc motorcycle record at 206.01 from 2009.” – Dusty Schaller
The Harley Softail went 163.598 on the first pass and 171.272 MPH on the second pass for an average of 167.435 MPH. At Dynojet we utilized the Power Commander V, Autotune, Quick Shifter, and Power Vision on the Harley Softail.
“Looking at the data we were just about to hit the rev limiter. Knowing the run on the next morning would be cooler we were hoping the bike would run better so we bumped up the rev limiter on the Power Vision to 7000rpm and good thing we did. We were pulling around 6850rpm during the run and 171.272 MPH. The AFR was spot on where we set it during the whole run so the Autotune was doing its job. This was an open record (no one had ran this class before) so the new standard for the 1650cc M-PBF (modified – pushrod blown fuel) is 167.435mph. We went faster than the class that allows a full fairing so this is pretty impressive.” – Dusty Schaller
Dynojet research is grateful for the support from our friends at Automotive Racing Products, Dumonde Tech, Dunlop, Fuel Moto, IHI Turbo, Ron Davis Racing Products, Race Tech, Spider Grips, Woods Performance and Write Way Signs for supporting the build of these record setting bikes.
Dynojet/Graves Yamaha Racing Development Supersport rider, Jordan Carlsson, has carried his form into Round 4 of the Australasian Superbike Championship held at Sydney Motorsport park, at the weekend. Following a string of podium results and an outright 3rd overall at round 3, Jordan carried his momentum into the Sydney round.
“I felt confident going in to the Sydney round” he explains. “It is one of my favourite circuits here in Australia and coming off the back of our results at QR, the team was very enthusiastic to get to work, so it was a good environment to be a part of.”
The twilight schedule allows only, two, 15 minute practice sessions on Friday. Following these, on Friday afternoon, Carlsson piloted his Yamaha YZF-R6 to the front row of the grid, in 4th position with a Qualifying lap time of 1:35:403.
“I knew we had the pace in us to run a pole lap. My chassis technician Steve and electronics guru Mark, have really worked well together to get the bikes working almost perfectly for me, which gives me a lot of confidence to do my part. Pole is ideal but we missed it by 0.2secs or so. I’m generally a good starter, so as long as we start from the front row, I know that we can fight for the win right away.” Jordan says.
“Race 1 was a bit of a 3 way battle for the lead where I spent the majority of the race in second but in the end I had to settle for third. Race 2 was pretty intense. It was a 5 bike battle for the win from start to finish. The last few laps I swapped from 2nd, to 5th and back but lucked out passing for third and had to settle for 5th. That put us 4th overall for the day”.
During Saturdays program, Jordan secured 5th in Race 1 in repeat of Friday’s event. In race 2, Jordan was locked in a fight for the race lead when rider error resulted in his first DNF result for the season.
“We were running really well in that one. It was just the two of us with a fairly large gap to third. I looked several times at the move and found my spot. Unfortunately, I made a small mistake, and it cost me the race. I wasn’t able to continue the remaining 2 laps due to damages. I was very disappointed to let the team down, but I know how well we were performing. I haven’t made a mistake for a long time, and this one caught me out, so I’ll be sure not to repeat that and repay the team at Round 5 in a few weeks, which I’m already excited about. We were able to hold down third in the championship despite our DNF on Sunday and are still capable of winning the title, so I’m still very positive about the next two rounds”.
The fifth round of the championship is to be held at Queensland Raceway over October 28 – 30.
