Automated Tuning is Now a Reality

Tune Like a Pro with Power Vision !

Dynojet has already left the competition in the dust with its innovative Power Vision flashing tuning system for fuel injected Harley-Davidson motorcycles.  Power Vision supports ALL Delphi ECM equipped Harleys, offers the most tunes for popular aftermarket parts, includes exclusive features not available anywhere at any price, and now an embedded auto-tuning technology that makes tuning your bike easier than ever.

The new Autotune technology leverages years of dyno testing and tuning directly into the Power Vision.  The process is automated, fast, and best of all you reap the benefits of technology in the form of a refined, powerful tune!  Power Vision can utilize one of two different methods to automatically tune your bike; the Autotune Basic method that uses your OEM narrowband sensors or Autotune Pro that uses wideband o2 sensors from Dynojet’s Autotune wideband control module.  The entire process is handled by the Power Vision (setting up the tune, logging data, fixing the tune, and flashing the tune) which means that you don’t need to fumble around with a computer in order to realize professional results.

To learn more about Autotune click here.

If you’re ready to dive right in, then have a look at the instructions and notes for a pre-release version.  This feature and many product refinements (all of which are simply software / firmware updates) will be publicly released in the next 10-14 days, but you can get ahead of the curve now by clicking here.

A few Power Vision Autotune screen shots:

Under the “Program Vehicle” menu you can now select AutoTune.  Go ahead and select “AutoTune”.

Select the tune you wish to use.

There are two different modes to chose from, Basic-Narrowband or Pro-Wideband.  If you do not have wideband o2 sensors installed (ie. those included in the Dynojet AutoTune kit), then select “Basic”, otherwise select “Pro”.

You should understand that the two different methods of Autotune yield similar results in most areas, but it’s recommended to use Autotune Pro for best results in ALL operating conditions that you’d experience while riding.

The tune will now be modified to be compatible with the mode you chose from above, and then flashed to the ECM.

When the Power Vision reboots, you can go back to the Autotune area under “Program Vehicle”.

image

Autotune is now set-up and ready to go.  Now select “Datalog” to start the Autotune process.

image

Autotune does the dirty work and starts calculating and logging the corrections that are required for YOUR bike, with YOUR parts, with YOUR gas, for the way YOU ride!

This screen shows the Autotune Datalogger at work:

image

Autotune Datalogger monitors various operating conditions to ensure you’re ready to start Autotuning, and whether or not you’re in a state to allow learning.  A large message will overlay the screen to indicate the condition that’s currently preventing learning.

image

After sufficient learning has taken place, you can exit Autotune Datalogger and chose “Export Learned”.

image

Power Vision will now take the corrections that were calculated from your ride and correct your tune……just like a professional tuner.  Changes will be made to your VE tables to accurately reflect the amount of air your engine is using, and this in turn ensures the target AFR defined in your tune actually matches the measured AFR.

image

image

image

From here you can choose to continue on with the Autotune process, or Disable Autotune.  If you continue, you can simply start again and choose the file that you’ve applied the learned values to.  If you chose to disable Autotune, don’t forget to exit to the main menu, select “Load Tune > Custom Tune” and select the tune that you’ve been “working on” with the Autotune feature.

Power Vision doesn’t have a Pre-Loaded Tune for your Bike?

13258

Written by:

We’re making every effort to ensure that we have a tune for popular modifications for all years / models, but on earlier bikes (pre-’06) you may find there is a very limited selection or no tunes at all.

  • Note:  You should be aware that the tunes available on the website (http://www.dynojet.com/PowerVision/PowerVisionMapsTunesDownloads.aspx) are the EXACT same tunes that are available on the Power Vision itself under “Program Vehicle > Dynojet Pre-Configured Tunes”.  If your Power Vision is up to date (use the Update Client), then you’ll have all the same tunes that are listed on the website.

Can’t find a tune on the Power Vision for your bike?  There are a few options:

  1. If you don’t find an exact match, then look for similar combinations that will be a close match.  For example, if you boil it down, there are really only a few combinations:
  • Stock Improved – completely stock bike with no aftermarket parts fitted
  • Air Cleaner / Slip-on
  • Air Cleaner / Full Exhaust System
  • Air Cleaner / Full Exhaust System / Cam
  • Air Cleaner / Full Exhaust System / Cam / Increased Displacement

The Power Vision calibration ID’s tell the story, besides the full description that’s available on the website or on the Power Visions display.  For example, the 7th, 8th, 9th, and 10th digit give you an indication of the “Tune Level”.  Find a Tune Level that’s closest to your combination, read the description, and then chose the closest match.

Tune Level

1

Stock Improved

2

Air Cleaner

3

Slip-ons

4

Full System

5

Cam

6

Increased Disp.
  • 10T096002301.pvt indicates that this is an “Air Cleaner / Slip-on” tune
  • 10T096002401.pvt indicates that this is an “Air Cleaner / Full Exhaust System” tune
  • 10T096245601.pvt indicates that this is an “Air Cleaner / Full Exhaust System / Cam / Increased Displacement ” tune

 

  1. You can always use a “Copy of Original” function under “Program Vehicle > Load Copy”.  This will allow you to save a copy of the tune that was in the ECM when the Power Vision married to your bike.  From there you can open this tune in WinPV and edit the tune to meet your needs.  You can edit the fuel tables, spark tables, VE tables, idle, and many other parameters.
  1. On earlier bikes, especially those without closed loop fuel control, the PC Map Import feature works quite well.  The PC Map Import feature allows you to take advantage of over 1000 maps that are available for certain mods on Harley-Davidson Motorcycles.  Using the process described in #1 from above (Copy of Original) as the “base tune” you can actually import a Power Commander map directly into your Copy of Original and end up with a custom tune for your combination of parts.
  2. Email PVtech@dynojet.com and we’ll be able to assist you with any of these options, or even create a base tune for you.  Your email should include the original back up tune, and to acquire that just follow these steps:

Note: if you’ve already locked the Power Vision to your bike’s ECM and the original tune has been backed up on the Power Vision (which is automatic), and you’ve already attached your Power Vision to your computer and run WinPV, the original backup should already be on your computer here >> C:\ My Documents\Power Vision\Original Tunes.  If you have NOT locked your Power Vision to an ECM, or if the original backup is NOT in the default location, then follow the steps below!

  • Plug in the PV to the bike’s diagnostic port / connector
  • Turn the bike to the on position (key on, kill switch to “on”, engine off)
  • Go to “Vehicle Tools” on the Power Vision after it boots up
  • Select “Read ECM”
  • Let the process complete, and then remove the PV from the bike.
  • Launch WinPV
  • Go to “Get ECM Data” on the Tool Bar
  • Select the stock calibration, it should be something like this “08-HHH-JFFTZNK-8282206b.stk”
  • Save that file locally on your PC
  • Email that files to PVtech@dynojet.com

FAQ’s

Question: OK, so if I trade in my bike for new model, then all I need to do is purchase and acquire a PV-UL1?

Answer: Correct, when a PV-UL1 is applied to a Power Vision, all user files are deleted and the device will unlock from the previous ECM.  At that point the Power Vision is unlocked and ready to be used (locked to) your new bike’s ECM.

Question: Once a Tune License is applied to the Power Vision, does it remember the bike forever? For instance, if I apply a Tune License to a Power Vision for a 2010 Road King, tune it, and then apply a license for a 2009 Dyna, can I then go right back to the Road King and tune it?

Answer: No, you’ll need to use WinPV to apply the License to the Power Vision for the bike you wish to tune. The Power Vision doesn’t “remember”, or retain licenses files from previous bikes once you apply a new Tune License.

Question: Can I purchase more than 2 Tune Licenses for the same Power Vision? My wife has a Harley, and so does my brother-in-law and I’d like to tweak their tune.

Answer: Yes! There is no limit to how many Tune Licenses you can buy and use with your Power Vision. You can tune each bike as many times as you’d like with no restrictions or limitations.

Question: What if my ECM fails and I need it replaced? If my Power Vision is locked to my old “broken” ECM, then how can it be used on my new ECM?

Answer: If you submit a copy of the service order / invoice from the dealer that clearly states the ECM had failed and was replaced, then there’s no charge for the Unlock License (PV-UL2)

Question: If I’m out on the road and I have a Tune License for my bike, and my wife’s bike, can the Power Vision flash either bike I chose?

Answer: No, you’ll only be able to flash the bike that is consistent with the Tune License that’s currently loaded to the Power Vision.  At this point, the Power Vision can only manage one Tune License at a time, but you use your computer and WinPV to load a Tune License the Power Vision they were issued for at any time.
