That would be neat to see. I can't really see that an airbox would change anything if it is not pressurized with a ram air intake. I would like to see if I am right.

Putting that in the airbox might affect the flow of air into the the intake. It creates an obstruction.

With the air box lid on, yes I would agree, however, with the lid off, I doubt anyone other than a dyno would notice a difference.

Splicing into the wires like that is never a good idea. There is a reason all the connectors are sealed. The splice could cause a few problems in the future.

Other than that great write up.

Re: DynoJet Power Commander - Installation & Review - "Is your 700r thirsty 4 fuel?"

how are you suppose to do it then. You have to get to that wire somehow so that its talking to the tps for the accel pump. Its not like he just made up that step either, its in the instructions from dynotech.

Re: DynoJet Power Commander - Installation & Review - "Is your 700r thirsty 4 fuel?"

Still a bad idea I do not care who designed it that way.
I have been a mechanic for over 20 years and the only place unsealed connections are good is in an interior of a vehicle.
I have spent a lot of hours and customers $$$ repairing taps from alarms, stereos, aux lighting etc.
The proper way would be to have a piggyback connector.
Other than that I would cut, solder and heatshrink

Find another unsealed connector on the machine.
One of the service bulletins even deals with corrosion.

Re: DynoJet Power Commander - Installation & Review - "Is your 700r thirsty 4 fuel?"

I am not disagreeing with you that it probably isnt the best thing in the world to be cutting into the wires.....but on the other hand, it probably isnt a good idea to be doing exhausts......doing intakes.....messing with the fuel managment....changing gears. They all could wind up breaking down the quad or increasing wear. That splicer they have you install on the tps wire isnt like its making this huge patch of bare wire. You simply pinch the thing on there, and the little medal blades inside the splicer cut threw JUST ENOUGH of the wrap to make contact. I dont really know that ANY wire is showing or exposed to the elements.....not if you do it right. I would have to think there is as much exposed on it as there is at every single electical connection on the bike. Just dont see how you are so concerned about this additional one. I have yet to hear anyone having any problems.
Bottom line is, it works, and makes the quad perform better. Is the machine going to last forever NO, but doing mods like these are part of the game, and to me are well worth any added wear and tare. Had my yfz all clapped out with mods which is a much more high strung motor, and NEVER had a problem with it the entire time I had it!

Wiring issues from corrosion take time, water, mud etc to develope and they will.
Its not about now its about a few years from now.
For the $$$ one spends on a PC3 why wouldnt they put a better connector on it.

Re: DynoJet Power Commander - Installation & Review - "Is your 700r thirsty 4 fuel?"

well, good question. I am sure cost and complexity comes into play.....but dont know the full answer. I did go look at mine and can say I am not any more nervous about that tps splice tap then I am about any other part of the electrical sytem. There is indeed NO wire showing under that tap. To me its nothing to worry about.
