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

Just a word of advice i installed mine last week and i used about 3 tie straps to hold the harness in place along the frame to make sure that it wouldn't move......

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

and my 2 cents on tapping into the TPS wire i found it eaier to take off the right fareing bolt and reach it from the side....mine was really stuck on good i had to use a flat head to pry it off (make sure really careful if do this) once tapped in i used electrical tape to make it really secure......

p.s. i ordered mine from fuel moto.....works great....

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

I was wondering cali how long it took for your install and how long would you estimate out of all that time it took you to take the photos (in order words if you didn't have photos to take how long would it of taken?) I'm thinking of getting a PC but I'll probably be asking my dealership to make the install. Also, are there any install instructions that come with the device itself (I would hope so) and would it be possible to make it available online. Thanks.

It is a very easy install you could do it yourself no problem. I found it easier to remove the plastics aswell. It gives you alittle more room to do the job right and not break anything.

Thanks for the comments, and just to reply to my own post I'd like to point out I found a direct link to the install instructions which is:

For the $$$ one spends on a PC3 why wouldnt they put a better connector on it.

Air, they don't gear their installs to people like you and I, they gear them for the mechanically/electrically challenged general public. If you bought one you would solder it up and put heat shrink tubing on it, so it's really no big deal. ( I know shit like this bugs me to ) I rarley use any of the connectors supplied with any electrical component, I prefer ancor marine grade connectors that you can shrink with a heat gun or pocket torch when your finished, the same as you would do with heat shrink tube only you don't need the heat shrink tube or the solder. They work slicker than owl shit and have been proven for years in harsh marine enviroments

I've taken off the plastics so many times on the 700r, for both mine and my co-tester, but for a first timer, with reading, getting the right work area together and tools, I would say definately say no more than 90 min's from beginning to the very end. But if your knowledgable, perhaps just under 30 min's.

Peace.

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

So the PCIII install is easy, but with the wire tap, whats an easy way to avoid corrosion.. i do alot of woods riding, and theres usually always mud... I dont know much about soldering and all that, so if theres an easier solution for a beginner that would be awesome...

The TAP pieces are all plastic, and have an outer layer of plastic, with the metal contact piece that pierces the yellow wire on the 700r, and then the male connector taps into the TAP and it is all sealed. With the plastic peices from the TAP, the boot that goes around and protects the OEM plugin and a little bit of electrical tape, I think the whole idea of corrossion,etc. is being a little bit played out to an extreme. But hey, that area of the quad is fairly well protected and underneath the tank, so I theres only so much water or mud or anything that will get up in there. I haven't had any issues to date and I have been riding and washing alot (knocks on wood).

Peace.

That goes for me too. Powerwash all the time, and ride in dirt/mud. Everything is fine. Nothing is anymore exposed then from the factory. Some people just like being EXTRA cautious
