Hi,
I've complained about my fuel injection, even spoke of putting carbs on the GRiSO (sacrilege i know).
What i need is education and someone to show me (drive me through) the process of removing my power commander, running guzzi diag and eventually loading up one of beetles maps.

location, central north island, new zealand, Tokoroa based.
Happy to pay in bourbon or chainsaw work on your firewood.

cheers terry

Terry, it's not really that simple, but maybe it is.

You need to have someone who understands how the W5AM system works to tune your bike right.

If there is someone near you who understands how to use Guzzidiag, or even one of the other tuning diagnostics available, that will be a big start. But there are a host of actual physical, as in 'Bits you can turn with a screwdriver' items that have to be checked before you can find if someone less than competent has messed with your bike and IF it has been messed with mapping it 'Correctly' is not a magic bullet.

My advice at this point would be simply disconnect the PCV and see what happens! In doing so the bike may appear to run worse! If it does? Just reconnect it but that doesn't change the fact that any 'Add On' like a PC is a truly horrid kludge and can promote a host of longer term issues.

FWIW the moment we're allowed to Jude and I will be coming over to NZ for a holiday and I'll be more than happy to come down and walk you through tuning your bike. Cost? A couple of beers and a meal out we'll probably pay for!

FI seems frighteningly difficult for people who grew up with carburettors, shit, I'm one of them! I'm 64 and struggle with my iPhone! But it's not that hard to learn. And if you aren't willing to learn? Go back to the cave dwelling experience of points, carburettors and accept the limited handling, brakes, power, torque and enjoyment that this generation of machines can bring.

We'll work you through this. Read! Learn! Fear nothing! cheers

Aye aye cappo.
I think rule 7 was, "sometimes you have to slide down the obstacle head first"
I know rule 10 is, "never ever ever ring the bell"
somewhere between rules 1 & 7 it's "find someone to help you row your boat"

Admiral McRaven

A beer and dinner....done, have spare rooms too if need be.
There may be hope for me yet :-)

And thank you so much for your help this far. will look at pc removal tomorrow.

oh my oh my....Instituted rule 7 with a little encouragement from yourself cappo.

Well now that rides like a guzzi. Turns out the power commander does indeed give you more power, with this one, in all the wrong places & fierce like!

Can now give it a handful without fear of the rear tyre letting go, power is predictable and feathering the throttle also good.

Drawback, a little bit more popping in the exhaust on throttle down (can live with that) and mid throttle feathering a little erratic but otherwise...awesome!

Now understand why injection is popular....all i want to fix now is a little more top end, mid range neddy and faster idle on cold, warm idle perfect.

A Pete “going over” and a Beetle map and you’ll be really pleased. Popping and any other bad behavior will be gone. And you’ll be set for a long time and have peace of mind that it’s set up right.
