Help with pcV..
« on: September 09, 2019, 07:57:28 PM »
I have a 2019 z900 with delkevic full system exhaust 4:2:1,I'm planning to install pc5, as I don't have  good tuners in my city I have to stick with the maps available on their site..
Has any 1 tried the Akra or leovince full system map available on their site?
If yes,does the bike run fine with the map?
And the fuel available in my city is 91ron..will the bike run fine with this tune and fuel?

Cant help you with the power commander side of things, but theres a couple of red flags for me in your statement. Firstly, the owners manual calls for a minimum of 95 octane fuel to be used with ethanol content not exceeding 10% (E10) and the maps online will have been made using this grade of fuel or higher, so that could cause a problem.

Second issue is the system youre using. I was under the impression that the Delkevic headers were a straight 4 into 1, unlike the Akrapovic headers which are 4-2-1, so the mapping for the Akrapovic headers for example would be different as your system is a different design.

All riders here in my city are using 91 Ron with additives for superbikes,there is no alternative,the bike is running fine without knocking..
Ya delkevic does 4-1 headers but Iam running a Akra header with a delkevic exhaust..

Ah ok, from your first post I thought you meant you had the Delkevic headers. If youve got the Akrapovic headers and youre using an additive that makes up for the lower quality fuel then the PCV map should make at least some improvement I guess.

"with Delkevic full system exhaust 4:2:1"  - see what ya' meant Rob..... Delkevic can on the end.

My local non ethanol fuel is either 90 or 91 (US), about .28 more than just the regular 87 / 89 octane with 10% ethanol added.
2 other bikes run better on cheap 87, Wife has to buy her own when the Z goes out  :001:

You do get 97 Octane Fuel at BP Fuel Station near Madhava Rao Park.

Btw,

I'v had the Stock Headers + Link Pipe (Bread Box eliminated) + Arrow GP2 end can for almost an year (~16000+kms) .. Iv had no issues whatsoever.. (Even with 91 Octane fuel)

Then decided to get a PC5 + Akra Full System Map (from Dynojet website).

its been a couple of months now and ran 2000+kms ..

Just crossed 18000kms yesterday ... So far so good.. :305:

there's 2 gas octane index and they cannot be compared directly
97 aki = 91 ron

Agreed,  :028:

But 97 Octane is best fuel we get in India.

So we gotta make do with what we have.

These Jap engines are quite rugged in a sense that they seem to run pretty good with regular fuel.

Lack of performance and reliability are certainly not a concern after having ridden 18000+kms so far.

Y'all get the good stuff, best I could find in my area was 91 octane with no ethanol. #Jelly 😒
