PC2 maps help

On my RC51, the mileage is just horrible and I'm wondering if a new tune might not only help with the mileage but help with my performance slightly. The only mod my bike has is 2-1 headers with a shorty pipe attached. Do I want to run a stock map? or a map made for a different 2-1 set up? So many maps to choose from on Dynojets website I don't even know where to begin.

Mileage on my RC was never great .... Especially if you wanked on it.

I had a tune done but wouldnt know how it ran stock as it was far from stock when i got it the performance and how smooth the bike ran is very noticeable compared to how it was when i got it. The mapping WAS way off like someone just plugged in numbers so it was redone by a certified dynojet center

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

I'll help you out, save your money. 90% of all rc51s get between 25~28 mpg. I can count on my hand how many people claim they get 30+. So the only way you'll get better is to lean it out to the point of starvation. Welcome to the club and remember to fill up every 100~120 miles or so. Oh and the 2 in1 exhaust I believe will give you more top end but you lose torque down low. Going back to duals will give you better results if you get a remap. And there are several rc51 forum that list the free mods that will help with the performance. Speedzilla.com, rc51.org

It wouldn't hurt to try a couple free maps downloaded from power commander. I re-mapped my SV after owning it for a year because I was getting poor mileage using the PC map for a full yosh and K&N, and literally got about an 8mpg jump, and smoother power delivery. Had it dynoed 20k miles later and they said it wouldn't be worth doing a complete dyno tune.

And you can always reload whatever map was on there.

It is far better to be thought of as a smartass than an dumbass. And as American Humorist Robert Benchley (1889-1945) noted, "no matter how well-intended, any reply to a dumbass question will inevitably appear smartassed". - Bob Hall (creator of the Miata)
