This allows me to lug the bike back to camp without the autotune changing the trim levels in the lower RPM's.
Dave, how are you wiring up a "hardware switch"? Right now I just use a quick disconnect wire to power the autotune (bullet connector style, just pull it apart) but I have heard that you can wire a switch directly into the A/T?

Its important to note that it takes awhile to get the map worked out. You cant just install it all, go around the block and your quad is tuned. It actually takes several sessions, short at first and eventually longer to get the kinks worked out. This is mostly because it only adjusts up to 20% per throttle position. You have to accept that trim and run it again, and again. You will see 80% changes that took 6 runs to make when your all done. Dont for get thats on top of the start map you chose that matches your mods.

Dont make the mistake I made. I installed a PC-5 and auto tune, wrode around the yard. Loaded the quad up and drove to meet 13 other guys in WV for a week of riding. I barely got out of the driveway, my quad was starving for fuel. It took a day to get it tuned well enough to ride with the others.

There are two wires on the autotune that can be wired to a switch. The instructions say which ones to use. Any standard automotive open/close circuit switch will work.

It doesn't well work on the dyno, that's for sure...Didn't have a tuning link so I enabled the autotune and it didn't really do much but make it read lower on the dyno

The autotune definitely needs to be disabled when on the dyno.

Yep. I actually lost a bit of power with it's adjustments...so I'm reloading the base map again and doing a proper autotune run once I get a hardware switch tapped in.

Wiring a switch or quick disconnect is a fairly easy task but itn's it just as easy to carry your laptop in a back pack while you are getting your map worked out (5 or 6 runs)?

Well this thread just confused me and made me a little upset. I put the autotune on my bike last summer because I was told I could go anywhere any elevation and the autotune will make all necessary adjustments for me. HENCE THE WORD "AUTO". It sounds like this is the farthest thing from the truth?? So if I go up to north Utah from vegas I have to bring a laptop and accept changes when I get up into the higher elevations?? Thats really frustrating and defeats the whole purpose on why I purchased this thing.
