How to install a Power Commander III (R6 2006)

Very easy tutorial: installation of the Power Commander III USB.

You will need to access the under the tank, so just remove the tank from his original place.

Remove the plastic fairing below the tank and move the tank. Find a solution to have a complete access to the airbox.

USB connection:

If you connect your laptop by USB, be sure that the USB is correctly plugged in (need to help a little bit to have it plug correctly). The current map will be directly displayed in the software provided with the PC. To load a map, just send it and you will get a confirmation when it's loaded. Use the throttle and see the synchro within the program on your laptop.

External power required to run a PCIII:
The Power commander requires external power in order to communicate with it or to make button adjustements. On some models of motorcycles, power is only supplied to it while the engine is running (if the lights on the face of the unit go out a few seconds after switching on the ignition: your bike is affected by this); To power the PCIII you can connect the supplied 9 volt power adpater instead of using the bike's power. (extract from the original documentation)

You are right, the power commander doesn't work on itself, it need to be on a charger (9volts - the adapter is provided with the PCIII) or you need to start your engine to aliment your PC.
I will complete my post with this short and useful notice.

Re: How to install the Power Commander III

you don't need to plug in the 9 volt for it to turn on. Your motorcycle should power it. You did something wrong if it doesn't work with just the motorcycle power.

Re: How to install the Power Commander III

Mine is an 03. It was pretty simple. I hooked the black harness up to the bikes black and the other one up to its equivalent harness. And then I hooked up the ground to the ground on the battery terminal. You know that the power commander itself won't have any lights on at all while it is running? What makes you believe that the power commander isn't working?
