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

Here we go with the installation of DynoJets Power Commander (Part # 412-410) for the 2006 Yamaha Raptor 700r.

Tools Needed:

3/8's socket drive with 6" extension

3/8's size 10mm socket

# 2 screwdriver set

Small Sharp Cutting Pliers

Regular Pliers

4mm Allen




Start off of course with working in a safe roomy work environment.


Remove the seat.

For safety purposes, since you will be working on the electrical, disconnect the positive terminal on the battery.





Remove the arrowed items above using your 10mm and screwdriver. Make sure to set them aside somewhere safe, so you do not misplace them or lose them.


You will also have to remove the gas tank cover and front grille. Remove the arrowed items. For the grill removal push up at a -45 degree angle and the grill will come off. For the gas tank cover push forward up and it will slide off. Make sure to set these items somewhere where there is no foot traffic, wouldn't want anyone to step on these items.



Becareful with the lower fairing mount under the seat area, these are tabbed as well, they slide up and backward.


These are what you should set aside from the quad. If you have any more then you took off too much.


I propped the gas tank up with a small box, but if you have someone else available to help you, thats even better, have them hold up the tank.


Route the cables from the PC into the rubber slotted arrowed shown above.




On the lowest farther right hand corner, you will find the TPS connector, disconnect it and tap into the wire. You will use the connector tap connector provided by PC and connect it onto the yellow wire of the TPS plug. Then plugin the PC wire into the tapped connector. I made a slight cut into the factory boot cover so the boot would be able to accomodate the new connector and be protected at the same time as well. Connect the plug back into the TPS.



Your almost done. Now on top, right underneath the gas tank you will find a plugin connector that is on top of the fuel injector. You will unplug that connector and plug in to 2 connectors, the first will bypass and go into the PC and then the other will plugin directly into the fuel injector.


Now that you are done with everything, do not yet put everything back together!!!!

Grab your key and make sure that you did everything correctly. Start you quad, if it starts then you did everything correctly. If it did not, retrace your steps.


As far as placement of the PC, I used the back part of the Air Box for my placement. What you want to do is make sure that both the sites for velcro placement are cleaned for a good bond. I then applied the one side of the velcro onto the PC and then with the other opposite side on the PC, dropped and pressed it into the PC so that way the velcro pieces are fully aligned.







Do not worry about wet weather riding. The PC will fit right inside the airbox. See above pics.


Now your install is done.


Now for the downloading and aplying of the PC software etc, please go to the below sites for more info:

Download software, click above.

For animated tutorials, click above.

http://powercommander.com/accelpump.shtml
Free accelerator pump upgrade download, click above.

http://powercommander.com/416-411.shtml
Detailed map info, click above.

It is really easy if you have a laptop, just install all of the software needed. Plug in the USB cable to the PC and then plugin the other end to your laptop. Start the software, start the quad, and there you go, the PC and laptop are communicating. For further info, please read the manual as to what and how to do things.

This mod, allowed the bike to not run lean, and your set of the pants dyno will feel the difference right away. This is probably the best mod you can do for your 700r.

If you have any questions, feel free to PM.

Thanks,

:thumbsup:

My bro has the big gun limited exhaust on his quad and the pro flow design air filter. Now you can hear the air getting sucked in. Sounds like a rocket getting ready to lanch. The exhaust made a hge improvement in sound and power.

Funny that you mention it, I have everything ready (pics etc), I just have to write it up and post up and it will be done. It will be with the Pro Flow Intake. Just fyi. It should be up this coming Monday or Tuesday (06/19 or 20)at the latest.

Peace.

That was to show you that the PC actually fits inside the intake duct for mounting the PC to the back of the air box. For the most part, I actually run it w/out the air box lid. Maybe I should see if I can get a manufacturer to allow me to test an aftermarket aluminum air box. We'll see.

Peace.

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.

???????????? 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.
