I bought a used PCIII that I need to map for my 2001 F4i.

It has a D&D can, no K&N yet, but probably will get that pronto so I can include that in the map.

There's of course, no map for D&D for my bike.
I did find one for the 929RR.

I have changed my sprockets (likely to impact?)

And I've heard about custom mapping, though I don't know where to go for that or how much it would cost.

Ideas and opinions?

If it's just a D&D slipon then you can use pretty much any map for any slipon. Yes the K&N will affect your map choice so look for one with a K&N and a slip on. Find all you can and try out a few. But the differences will be slight at most.

The 929 map is no good for your F4i regardless of the fact that it is for a 929 with a D&D

Sprockets don't matter to the map.

Custom mapping is expensive and you need to find a shop that does it. I was quoted a round number of $600 but it was just a rough estimate. The actual cost is dependent on the hours and the hourly fee.

Just download any and all maps you can find for your F4i. Then collect all the ones that seem close to your setup and try each of them. Keep notes and choose the one that feels the best.

Its probably overkill, but if youre experimenting with maps, once youve found one that works, run it for a while (week or so) and pull a spark plug or two out and make sure everything looks ok internally..... (ie not runnig too rich or lean)

(not too sure how good the FI systems monitors the parameters with the PCIII installed)

Ok, I know where the gasoline goes in and did my first brake pad replacement. That's it for mechanically inclined.

Need to be real basic with me, Revelations... what do I look for once removing the spark plug?

I've been 'tinkering' with my PCIIIr for a few months now. PM me if you have any questions.

Pulling the sparkplugs on many newer sportbikes is not an easy task. Often they are under the airbox where the tank and airbox needs to be unmounted to even see where the socket goes.

I did mine about a month or so ago, start to finish it took about an hour or so, mostly because I waited for things to cool a little before pulling the plugs. But you can lift the tank, take off the airbox, etc. I can give you a hand if need be.
