power commander come with 4 plugs for the fuel injectors.
2 go into the fuel injector them selfs and the other 2 clip in to the stock injector harness.

both bikesssssssss run good, 2 diffent bikes and 2 diffent set up.

pownercommnader clips then clip into the fuel injectors are the same.

the other 2 clips that go into the stock fuel injectors clips are connected diffent on both bikes.

bike #1 powercommander says is clips are hook up right
bike #2 powercommander says is cliped wrong.

bike 2 the bike that is wrong runs so much better then bike #1

bike #1 clips that go into stock injectors clips is as followed

br/wr to r/o

What you have posted (twice) is confusing to say the least. Call Dynojet and let them sort it out for you.

Did you try swapping the P/C's from bike 1 and 2?

Quite frankly, it makes no sense that if the units are the same they would be different. Did they send you the wrong unit?

Are you sure that the two PCs are for a 2007 Vulcan? If the bikes are identical then the PCs should be identical and it sounds like they're not. Have you looked at the serial/model numbers of them? Call Dynojet

It does matter how you plug these in. There is a thing called mapping. I know on air cooled bikes, the rear cylinder has to be mapped richer, because of the heat. I am sure that the same is true on the Vulcans. I will take mine out and give it a good flog and check it with the Raytech and tell you the results.

You may also have a defective box. It is not uncommon.

I am not a big fan of these black boxes. I prefer a program that you can hook up to a PC and do your own thing. But it's all trial and error.
