Wideband CX- Dial in Performance

53

Written by:

Nary a rider in the world, has been out riding with his chosen vehicle and thought to himself, “This vehicle is absolutely perfect and I wouldn’t change a thing about how the engine/suspension/etc performs.”

Luckily Dynojet and the rest of the aftermarket industry are here to help you build that ride. Whether it involves a different seat to feel more comfortable, better shocks or valving setup to smooth out the ride, or an increase in engine performance, many options exist to suit your exact wants and needs.

IN THE CASE OF DYNOJET WE FOCUS ON PERFORMANCE

Once you’ve installed the perfect set of hard part modifications (exhaust, intake, cams, etc.), the airflow characteristics through that engine have significantly deviated from the OEM delivered styling. The control unit responsible for telling the engine how to inject fuel or light a spark plug has not been informed of your changes leading to impaired performance. An invaluable tool employed to monitor engine performance is a Wideband O2 sensor installed in the exhaust. This fancy sniffer watches how efficiently the engine is combusting fuel which is a direct correlation to whether the mixture of Air : Fuel is either ideal, too rich, or too lean. The latter two can result in performance being left on the table.

AVAILABLE FOR SINGLE AND DUAL CHANNEL APPLICATIONS

Now available from Dynojet is this very tool – the Wideband CX – which inserts O2 feedback onto the vehicle’s databus for real-time monitoring. Installed via one plug-and-play connection, the data supplied by the Wideband CX alongside current engine running conditions provides the necessary information to maximize your vehicle’s performance.

The host of this party-for-two is the ever capable PowerVision CX device to gather and log the actual datastream as you’re out for a leisurely cruise or developing on a Dynamometer. The collected information is reviewed in the Dynojet PowerCore Software Suite showcasing a pinpoint cell tracer to indicate at what Engine RPM, Load, and Requested AFR resulted in a Pulse Width to produce an AFR at that exact time….pretty cool stuff there. If the graphs indicate the AFR is not within your desired range at that moment, simply adjust the tune in that area, save the file, reflash your ride, and give it a go! You’ll now have a definitive answer that the trusty steed you’re aboard is dialed in for your riding style, your chosen accessories, and is delivering maximum performance.

Once you have logged with the WBCX you can view your AFR (or other channels from the ECU) in the Power Core Data Center software. This graph shows AFR from the front cylinder vs RPM and pressure relative to the VE table.

Power Vision CX Release for Victory 2008 & Newer 106″ Models

1082

Written by:

Breathe new life into your Victory with the Dynojet

Power Vision CX.

Your Victory motorcycle is now a flash away from unlocking the hidden power and torque that lurks within, all without adding extra devices or modules! The Power Vision CX interfaces with the ECU through the diagnostic connector and allows you to read the original tune (which can be restored), flash new tunes, view live data, and datalog. Dynojet tunes are available and have modified fueling, timing, rev limit, idle, and other changes to take advantage of the 106’s potential. Shops, tuners, and advanced users are enabled to further optimize Victory 106’s with the included Power Core software. This powerful software suite provides all the tools to perform custom tuning, view and analyze datalogs, and automate corrections using Tune Lab.

To us, Victory is and will always be a great motorcycle. A legend we have ridden and tested,  although Victory is closing their doors Dynojet will continue to support Victory riders with the best possible air/fuel performance tools. Legends never die, Victory isn’t dead.

 

How does the Power Vision CX benefit my Victory?

The Power Vision CX isn’t just a flash tuner, it is a complete toolkit for your ECM.

Stock Victory Motorcycles will realize increased power and torque throughout the entire operating range. Our tuning specialists focused on low, and mid-range grunt and the results are impressive. The combination of fuel and ignition advance changes are optimized for a stock, or stock with high-flow air cleaner. Your riding experience will be transformed with the Power Vision CX.

Modified Victory Motorcycles require more extensive tuning. The Power Vision CX affords the ability to use our pre-developed tunes for your specific combination, or you can visit a dyno tuner that can custom tune your Victory for optimal results. Until now, the only options for tuning your Victory were in-line devices that could only adjust fuel, and in some cases fuel and timing. Power Vision CX unlocks the potential of your Victory by adjusting the calibration inside the ECM, resulting in a higher level of control required for bikes with serious modifications.

As you can see the significant improvements are in the lower to mid range but still peak above your stock horsepower on a Stock 106″.

Congrats to Jordan Carlsson on Australian Supersport Championship Round 4

Written by:

GalleryNewsRacingSport

“The Hyperion Motorsports/Graves Yamaha Team can report that Supersport rider, Jordan Carlsson, has regained a close 4th overall in the Australian Supersport Championship, following Round 4 of the Australian Superbike Championship, at Hidden Valley Raceway, Darwin, at the weekend. It is a positive step for the team, as the season enters its second half, with three rounds now remaining, however, it wasn’t without complications. Carlsson displayed pure persistence and determination during both 14 lap races in the heat of the Darwin sun, following a qualifying result that left much room for improvement, by both team, and rider, due largely to a lack of circuit knowledge, having never been to Hidden Valley before.” Read the full press release at www.jordancarlsson.com

“To be honest we struggled a lot to find a setting that allowed us to push for a lap time to give us a good starting position” Jordan explains. “We had our work cut out for us there as a lot of the guys competed at the Three-Hour endurance race the week prior, and that gave them an advantage right from FP1. We found the pace we needed, but much alter than we would’ve liked to. That is something we need to actively work on, and I look forward to the official ASBK Test ahead of Round 5, as qualifying has been our weak point in the last two rounds in particular. We’ve had good race pace, but it is just so critical to qualify well with this format of racing, as it allows me to manage the tyre a lot better towards the end of the race and push for race wins in order to bank maximum points for the championship” he says.

 

Qualifying: 13th
Lap Time: 1:09:991
Pole Time:1:09:153
Top Speed: 267km/h
Lap Record: 1:09:458

 

 

Keep up the good racing Jordan #45.

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.

977

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 hear 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.

Dynojet to attend Rally on the Rocks

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
