Power Vision Firmware Update 2.0.29.1570

Keep on Tuning!  Dynojet Power Vision supports the latest updates for H-D motorcycles with the new firmware level and tune database.

We just released a new firmware and tune database for Power Vision, firmware 2.0.29.1570, and tune database 0.0.9.46. Which means Power Vision now supports two new software levels for Harley-Davidson Motorcycles; 621 and 822.

Software level 621 is used on 2014 and newer Softail & Dyna 110” models.

 

822 is used on 2017-2018 Touring models.

 

Simply use the update client to manage the download and installation of the latest firmware.  Once updated you’ll be able to tune these new software levels using the original tune as the basis, or use 617 (for 621) or 723 (for 822) level calibrations in their place.  To avoid any voids in service, the Power Vision Tune License Program has also been updated and will support these new software levels.

Rally on the Rocks 2017 – Dynojet Research hits Moab Trails.

358

Written by:

Rally on the Rocks is one awesome event. Each day UTV drivers are signed up for numerous tours around the wonderful Moab desert. The clouds opened up and we were able to sneak away from the pits and get some riding in at Fins and Things trail. There were a few harder obstacles the guides showed the group that were optional, but Matt was the pilot today and he didn’t let off the gas. Our 2016 Polaris RZR Turbo turned heads as you could here the power on the trails. There was definitely more power than we needed on the sandstone climbs, but the low and mid range was smooth on the climbs. We used two foot braking a lot more on the downhill rock sections so we could keep a steady, smooth pace without dropping off the rocks completely. All in all the Power Vision CX kept our machine on the power.

All in all our first ride day at Rally on the Rocks was a success. It’s great to meet our customers and support them in every way we can.

What is Rev X-tend on Dynojet’s Power Commander V?

944

Written by:

What is Rev X-tend?

Rev X-tend is a feature within the Power Commander that allows you to change the engine’s rev-limiter. This feature can only be used on some models where the Power Commander has control of the vehicle’s ignition. If you have a “Fuel Only” PC5 unit, you would need to add an Ignition Module accessory to use the Rev X-tend feature.

What models PC5 includes Rev X-tend?

Some PC5units have Fuel and Ignition Control “built-in” to one unit. In most of those units, you can use the Rev X-tend feature. Most of those Rev X-tend compatible units are pre-configured to give you 500 RPM more than the stock rev-limiter, without the need for any key-code. You can get 500 RPM more than stock just by checking the box and enabling the Rev X-tend feature from the software. Some Fuel and Ignition PC5 units that have a pre-configured Rev X-tend feature that gives 500 RPM more than stock include units for Harley Davidson, Victory motorcycles, and many Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki , and Suzuki models that only have only one or two cylinders.

 

In the Power Commander V software you can enable Rev X-tend by going to Power Commander Tools>Configure>Feature Enable and Input Selections.

 

Do I need Rev X-tend to run my bike on the dyno?

No.

Why would I need to adjust my RPM?

The Rev X-tend feature can be setup to lower a engine’s rev-limiter. You might want to lower the rev-limit RPM to limit the power output for a novice rider. In most circumstances the feature is used to raise the rev-limiter for a modified engine that has the capability of producing more power at higher RPMs.

How do I set my RPM to a different configuration?

In some cases, you can get 500 RPM more than stock just by checking the Rev X-tend enabling checkbox in the Features window of the PC5 software. A key-code is needed if you want to set the Rev X-tend feature at any other RPM than what it is set at currently.

 

What is the key-code for?

A key-code is only needed if you want to set the Rev X-tend feature at any other RPM than what it is set at currently.
You must submit a Rev X-tend Request Form to get a key-code from Dynojet. You can download the Rev X-tend Request Form here: http://www.powercommander.com/downloads/GeneralDocuments/FormWaivers/RevXtendReqForm-1.pdf

It can be faxed to 702-399-1431, or you can e-mail the form directly to tech@powercommander.com as an email attachment. Please make sure the serial number, return email address, and desired rev-limit are clearly legible and that the form has a signature.

As always, let us know if you have any questions.

Dynojet to attend Rally on the Rocks

Written by:

We’re loading up the UTV Dyno Trailer and our 2016 Polaris RZR xp1000 Turbo to hit the trails at Rally on the Rocks. Rally on the Rocks is one of the biggest events of the year in Moab where UTV owners from around the country join together and hit some of the most awe-inspiring trails. Each day there are different trail options to choose from depending on your vehicle build and driving skills. Don’t be fooled by the beauty, the trails are tough and they will test your driving and car abilities. Their website states “8 Rating – A winch and/or tow strap is desirable. Excellent driving skills required. Roll over possibilities exist. 9 Rating – Extreme and beyond. Multiple large climbs, descents and off camber situations. 10 – Let the carnage begin! Rollovers VERY likely. Good spotting, experienced drivers with modified machines are required as even they will be tested.” Our RZR has stock suspension, a Trinity Exhaust, and is tuned with our Power Vision CX, so we won’t being doing anything too crazy, but it will be interesting to see our tunes perform in the more slower climbing sections, using left foot braking, and if we feel the desire to we can flash a different tune, or even make adjustments to the tune file. If you have any questions about our products or tunes you are running feel free to come on by our booth/dyno trailer. I will be heading up there with Matt and Chuck to help man the booths, hit the trails, and capture the UTV madness with my camera. Stay tuned on our blog or social media for photos and if you are at the event tag Dynojet in your photos.

Keep riding,
Kyle Chamberlain

Written by:

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.
