Alright, so my MAP sensor is fried, and needs to be replaced. Here's my question though. could i just avoid doing that by installing a power commander? thoughts, suggestions, etc. would be appreciated.



Oh, and how hard would it be to replace the MAP sensor myself?

no a pc will not take care of a bad map .. it needs to be replaced the pc basically steals the injector pulse before the injector sees it and modifies the pulse the injector actually receaves .. so not having a properly working map will screw with the ecu .. some afcs for cars intercept the map signal and modify what the ecu sees to to acheave a modified fueling .. a car with a bad map still wont run right even with a piggy back beacuse there is usually no signal or an irregular signal from the map sensor ..

i dont think it should be that pricey a part prolly get stung on labor im not sure where they are at on the bike and how much work it is to replace .. i always say better to replace it with a brand new one the first time than to have to do it twice just to put a new on in the second time .. you can prolly ask around and someone will tell you how hard it is to replace .. i dont know how easy or hard it is to replace on one of these ive never done it ..

it is very easy to replace if you dont bolt it to where the old one came off of. normally it is bolted to the bottom of the airbox with a very short vacuum hose attached to it. the easiest thing to do and will save you some effort is to unplug the old wire and hose and attach to the new one and then zip tie the new one to the wiring harness (away from anything that will snag or melt of course) and you can fix it in about 15 minutes that way

MAP Sensor:

Manifold
Air
Pressure

i'd just pull one off a junkyard bike. that must have been one bad lowside to FRY a MAP sensor...
