Anyone successfully installed PCV on a 2012 Ninja 650? Need help!

Wondering if anyone has successfully installed a Power Commander V on a 2012 Ninja 650. I've connected all the wires and I'm having trouble starting it with the PCV installed. It starts fine without the PCV installed tho. Tried calling their tech support line, but they weren't any help.

I'm pretty sure the plugs are in the right sequence. How would I know if they weren't tho? The bike just keeps trying to turn over, over and over again, making the clicking sound when I hit the start button.

Does the Power Commander light up when the key is turned on? It should. When the fuel pump comes on, the Power Commander should turn on. Try starting the bike with the Power Commander plugged into the computer. If it starts then, that usually indicates a poor ground.

The power light on the PCV does turn on when I try to crank up my ninja. Makes no difference if the PCV is plugged into the computer or not.

dont mean to derail your thread, but what exactly is a PCV? is it similar to having your ECU flashed on a car, or an engine management system?

Power Commander V. Yes, it's a fuel management system.

Should the ground wire be connected to the negative on the battery or to a screw grounding it to the frame?
