[QUOTE=Crispy;287454]So, the progress of the PowerCommander development for the 2018 CB1000R has hit the buffers. After Richard at DynoJet put in a LOT of work it has turned out that the 2018 CB1000R doesn't work with the PC in the same way as so many models of bike previously. Richard was concerned that within a very short time the bike would throw out error codes and this isn't how DynoJet want their products to leave them. The power, torque and graphs show that there's great gains to be had. So, the bike is coming back home and then in early January it's going back to DynoJet to explore another route.
I want to say a massive thank you to Richard for all his work so far. Watch this space for the next stage. All being well the CB will feel and perform like a new bike !

My thoughts are intended to provide a sounding board for your own.
Some of what I say may go against your own thoughts and may seem harsh, targeted and malicious.
This is not my intention – I am simply using my experience, including other peoples, as a way of debating and giving advice - of which there is no guarantee that it's correct
Damn! Soooo looking forward to a result, oh well. So Crispy, do you and Dynojet think there is a fair bit of performance to be unlocked with these bikes? I'd be happy if that midrange dip was the only thing that was sorted out properly. I have a full Akra system on mine now, although a bit too loud because of the type of slip-on purchased, the bike does respond a lot better and just seems to rev a lot quicker, and has quite an addictive sound to it.
Even though the PC was a no go it doesn't mean this is the end of the road. If anything the future option is even more exciting.
Watch this space
Edit: HA HA! Looks like I've just hit Senior Member! Virtual beers on me!
Bought a Rapid Bike , as they have no problem in the closed loop area with the newest Honda (already fitted one in my Africa twin 18 aswel , work like a charm).
Could be , if i have time .I´m pretty busy with mods in few other bikes (VFR1200f , ATAS , MT10 , MT10SP ,MT09SP ) and planning to do forks, rear shock , braided lines , rapid bike and air filter.
I will be picking up my CB in a few months here. I had the chance to test ride it and put it away on lay away for the winter. I did too notice the torque dip in the bike, but it has been so long since I have ridden it that I have forgotten exactly what it feels like short of a turbo spooling up at 6 grand. Has there been any more development with Dynojet on the fix for this? The set of graphs a few pages back that showed the fully system aka actually totally flipped the torque curve on its head and boosted torque where Honda chose to neuter it. Reviews all over the web and videos online are very mixed on the feeling, but most are very disappointed with this. How is everyones experiences with this dip? Will a Rapid Bike fix this? Will Dynojets power commander fix this?
