Does the power commander v work on 08 zx10r

Ive seen the new power commander v out for the 2009 zx10r but for the 08 it says to buy the power commander III. The 09 and 08 are pretty much the same bike so could i use the pcV on my 08?

2008 zx10-r

yes the 08/09 are the same bikes just different color, so the new PCV will work fine with the 08. check with some site sponsors for the price.

Were about to find out as I have already ordered one and it may even be delivered today per the tracking #.

The 08's and 09's have the same ECU part # so it shouldn't be a problem though dynojet is claiming it will not work due to software incompatibility.

I got mine from site sponsor Hard Racing.

my buddy got one from hard racing as well fedex overnight
should have it tomorrow and we are going to install and try it out
i think dj is just covering their arrss because they don't want to have to go out and get all these 07 and 08 bikes to retest the pcv and make maps
instead they just say buy pcciiiusb instead guess from business stand point it makes sense

This is easy.

If you look at the stock map for the 2009 PC5 you will notice it is exactly the same as the 2008 PC3 map for the 2008 ZX10R.

The PC5 has an extra column 15% that will need #s added. Dynojet in the stock map just used an average that would fall between the 10-20% range.

So get a 2008 PC3 Map for whatever configuration you have, open both PC3 and PC 5 software on your computer at the same time, copy and paste the PC3 columns into the PC5 columns, enter a # in the PC5 map 15% column that is an average of the 10-20% and your done.


For example at 4000 RPM's the PC3 map says +0 for 10% and +6 for 20% put +3 for the 15% column. Do each cell the same way.

Example 9000 RPMs -9 for 10% -1 for 20%, (PC3 Map) put -5 in the 15% column for the PC5 map.

Enjoy,

JJ

Click on Get Map from Power Commander should show you whats
inside.

You can also go into Evironmental Options and make sure "Retrieve Map Upon Connection" is checked. It should be that is the default setting so everytime you look at it, it should display the map inside.

Thought the pcv was an auto tune...if thats the case why is a map needed,wouldnt it build its own map as you drive or does it need a base map to work with or build on..
