Nomad 1700, V & H slip on's + KN filter: When fitting a PC V, is it necessary to also install the Autotune?
Thnx

No it isnt. If you havent already gotten it, would advise paying the extra 10-20 $$ for the ignition though if you plan to dyno tune it. There are some here who have shared their mapping with success, like Davidshrek. His map gets most all very close.

2005 800 classic
2012 Voyager ABS

Rick's right. A lot of us get great results without the auto-tune. With the auto-tune I've heard of guys saying it just keeps adjusting to a leaner & leaner map until it doesn't run any more. Not to mention you have to weld a CO2 pickup unit into your pipe. To be fare I did read where someone did have good results with it. It's not for me and like Rick said the PCV w/ignition does a great job. The PCV w/ign has just 4 additional wires to install. Nothing to it if your mechanically inclined. I can help you with a good starter map if you want.

The PC V supplier on E-Bay undertake to pre load the appropriate maps onto the PC V, according to the status of the bike, - exhaust, air filter etc - so should be no need for Dyno.
However, I'm not too sure what you are referring to re PCV 'w/ignition' ?

That model (17-033) comes with the ability to change the ignition timing.

Yes, just checked you are right it has ignition.
Thanks for your offer of the map, I'll see what comes with the unit and get back to you.

It will come with a "O" map unless you request the seller to put one in and that's if they have the knowledge & ability to do it.
