Is my Power Commander missing connectors? (Pics)

I bought a used PCIII USB for my SV. The part number is 314-411, which Dynojet lists as the unit for an '03-'04 SV1000. The problem is that the directions refer to plugging the PCIII connectors inline with the fuel connector and the throttle position sensor. Logic suggests that I would need four connectors on the PCIII to be able to plug it inline with two connectors. However, my PCIII only has two connectors, one ground cable, and one red wire with a blade-type plug on it whose purpose remains unbeknownst to me. The two connectors are not of the three-wire style of the TPS connection, so I assume they must plug inline with the "fuel connector".

Those of you that have installed PCIIIs, please have a look at mine and tell me if it's missing anything.

Here are the Dynojet instructions. I'm specifically referring to the connector referred to in step 6.

Here are the pics of my PCIII:

Thanks!

I added the images with [img] [/im g] around them which generally makes them appear in the thread instead of being just links, but for some reason it doesn't work here.

Cool Power Commander

I just installed a power commander on my '03 about 2 weeks ago. I think they gave you the wrong one. Same part # 314-411 but wrong mod.
My bikes getting repainted wright now or I'd send you some pictures, but mine had at least 6 plug connectors,a ground wire and definitely didn't have that red wire.

If you need some pictures I can get you some probable monday knight.

Sure, pictures would be cool if they're not too much trouble. Isn't it a bit strange that it would be the right part number but not be the correct unit?

I put one on mine way back and if I remember correctly it only has one “in line” pair of connectors – the TPS connection is just one wire that you tap into your TPS signal wire. I think they gave me one of those blue Scotch-lock connectors for the TPS wire but your better off soldering and sealing the connection.

They Changed it! – you need the old instructions. I’m trying to upload the PDF file but not having any luck yet.

I have the instructions but can’t upload them – the pdf file keeps showing up as a jpeg and only showing the cover page. Can anyone explain how to do it (and pretend your talking to Homer Simpson – cause you pretty much are).

that's the same unit i have on my bike. the six pin connectors plug into the injector harness on the bike-the pcIII intercepts the signal from the bikes computer and modifies it. the single small wire taps into the pink and white wire on the tps harness-solder it rather than use the wire tap. the large black wire connects to the neg terrminal on the battery. it's the connector in the lower l/h corner of the pic with the arrow pointing to it.

Is this a different model?

Here are the install instructions mine came with. Fig.C,D is different then yours. Instead of splicing in the red wire mine has 2 plugs for the TPS. One White plug and one black plug.

Thanks everyone. I guess my PCIII must just be original version without the second set of OEM connectors.

I got it for a pretty good price, but I really don't like the idea of cutting into the existing wiring harness. I'll check with Dynojet after the weekend to see if I can get an OEM-style harness to plug in instead.

Well, I'm intresested too - I got the 'old' version and I don't like wire taps...

If you get some info from Dynojet, please let me know.

- Akrapovic bolt-ons
- Desnorkeled
- LSL footpegs for a bit more ground clearance
- home made switchable TRE - not sure if it works though
- steel braided brake hoses
- EBC ProLite front rotors

Just make an inline connector with a male spade one side and a female spade the other... then you can remove it any time.

Bad news. The Dynojet rep I spoke to said they don't offer a service to retrofit OEM connectors onto the blade-type connector, nor do they sell the connectors. I think I am just going to buy a brand new PCIII. It's a lot more money but I feel much better about having OEM connectors for everything, so that if I ever remove it, the wiring harness will still be virgin.

How do you mean? Wouldn't that either require me to cut through the insulation on one of the wires, or to have a separate OEM-style connector to mount inbetween the TPS and the TPS plug?
