View Full Version : PCIII instaled and...

09-22-2004, 03:18 PM
Just got pclll instaled, and a custom map, after making the 1000k service.

The bike feel's much more powerfull, after 6300 rpm, but from 4500rpm till the 6300rpm, it's feel's slower. Albeigth that is not what it shows on the dyno grafic. (+/- 135HP)

Is it a bad tune up from the pclll? Or is just my senses that need to adapt, since the bike rev's so much faster from 6300rpm.( it feels is going to lift up in the air)

Will post the pics from the dyno and the cans.

By the way is there a RED LINE on this thing!!

Boas Curvas

Flapper valve disable

I've "only" have the evo air filter; flaper valve disable; and the pc3; and the map2 done (dont know the version).
I'm getting the ewes air box kit soon.

I think its the fuel quality?? I've heard someone say here that it runed on 91 octanes fuel?????

In Portugal we have 95;98; and 100 Octanes from BP.

I also ride at sea level.

Gues i'm just a lucky guy:D

why does it read PS instead of HP?

09-25-2004, 07:23 AM
in the US everyone uses SAE HP, in europe everyone uses DIN HP which is just a higher scale.

i think SAE hp x 1.1 = DIN hp

i'm having an exchange of views over here on another forum on the actual truth of being able to get that much increase in hp without touching the engine as such...following my statement that i had brought my factory from 116,32 to 130 at the wheel by putting new exhaust pulling a hose modifying the airbox and putting in a pc3 with a custom map (whixh is far from comleted btw)some people close to aprilia itself and who have worked on the rotax don't believe a pc3 can warrant gains higher than .5 or 1 hp.....

fools can be led to water but not forced to drink i guess....:rolleyes:

on a side note...i got back on her yesterday first time after my accident...and she is quick....bit discocerting the first few minutes....being i was in decent traffic and weather was very iffy...but as soon as we got back into synch....ehehehehe....however it was quite tiring....my left wrist needs strengthening again...

on a lot of bike the fuel injection is very close when you juts add pipes, but the RSV-R is a long way off, which is good news if you get a pcii and have a custom map done.

after pipes and airbox kit we are seeing around 123-124hp, with a custom map we are seeing 130-132hp, around 6hp from a pciii is awesome but it also shows how bad the stock map 2 programming is :)

It's just that millemizer, i couldn't believe the bike was so good, dispit the 5000rpm-6300rpm range wich needs some work, after that range, you need muscles to get it on the road.

Clarkie. HP and PS is the same, only KW are diferent!, and yes the map2 isn't that of a big diference i was expecting for, i'm hoping that aprilia releases map3? soon.!

And RSV, Just look at the Dyno grafs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

yep, the old numbers game :D

Hp and PS are the same in Europe as the scale that is used is a DIN conversion, here in the USA hp is measure as SAE Hp.
1 SAE hp = 1.1 DIN hp = 1.1 ps

while you and CC both look at HP 'gains' a lot of people just look at the actual number which isnt the best way to do it.

for example, CC started with 125hp and ended up with 135hp, other people have started with 120hp and ended up with 130hp, both people gained 10hp which is the main thing :)

What I find interesting in that graph is that the 6k rpm dip isn't so apparant.

That's a pretty straight curve. Looks good man.
