Power Commander for G310GS

Dynojet is looking for a donor bike in the Las Vegas area to confirm fit-up of a Power Commander V unit on a G310GS. If you are willing, they will have the bike for a week.

I don't work for Dynojet, I just know they are looking for a bike from talking to some of their people. Contact me over at ADVrider.com and I'll forward your info.

Don't PM me here. I can't reply because I don't have 15 posts.

Note: Members can't reply to PM's until they have 15 posts.

I used Dnynojet in a couple of bikes, and I am not so fond of it. it is kind of old system. I hope some other company will come up with a fuel enrichment solution...

as you love riding, you need to love you bike

Well these days my tuner of choice is no tuner at all, and an unlocked ECU with the tools to do it myself. For example, some of my previous generation Triumphs (675R) and KTM (690 supermoto) I could just plug in TuneECU, install my new map, make any changes I want and be done with it. Easy and free.



These days however more and more ECU's are getting locked down so you have to use a piggyback controller. If someone has "cracked" the ECU sometimes you can send it off to get it reflashed but most of the time you have to use a piggyback controller. With the BMW 310, it's kind of a fringe bike. I doubt anyone is going to put in the work on the ECU.

As far as a piggyback controller, Dynojet does it well and if you have to use one there's really no reason to use anything else. You mention a "fuel enrichment solution" like you might be talking about the BoosterPlugs and other tricks that some people are using. The proper way to do it is with air/fuel mapping on a x/y table with revs and throttle position.

You can't properly control an ECU with a "PowerJet" controller.

Real tuners map air/fuel ratio to a table.

Dynojet's Power Commander V also has the functionality of adjusting ignition timing, something that Bazzaz and many others do not have in their base units without an expensive add-on. So in summary, Dynojet is old, but it's also the most refined, and if you have to have a piggyback tuner it's the best choice.

The point of my original post is not to promote "stupid tuning options" for the G310GS. It's to help find a donor bike for Dynojet in Las Vegas so they can finally confirm fitup and get an official offering on the market. On the other hand, maybe they just don't care. These bikes aren't very common. If they really wanted an option on the market for the GS they would have bought a bike to work with.

first thing to know is that person who is using dynojet needs to have some knowledge about all these variables, such as fuel/air ratio, timing, etc...you kind of need to be 'professional'. I played with dynojet in my Vulcan in many ways, and I did not really see improvement, I could not even eliminate popping in the open exhaust. In the end, the bike just did not start because some wire was broken. I am not saying that Dynojet is bad, but it is a bit too complicated for an average rider and all the wiring does not inspire confidence. I trust more simple systems like EJK or booster plug. In my Tiger 800 the company offered to change the ECU map for open exhaust. I had at that time booster plug in combination with the map change and the bike was running too rich, so I removed booster plug.
