    Planning to put on a decat pipe and slip on. Is a power commander neccessary? What kind of power difference have you guys seen running the stock ECU vs a tuned power commander?

    Hey!

    Bad winners posted on one of their youtube comments that their Performance Kit increased power and torque to “87,2 CH (85.97HP) at 8090 rpm and 8,6 mKg (84.34 Nm)at 6800 rpm”.

    Husqvarna posted power of 75HP (76.07 CH) and torque of 72Nm (7.34 mKg) on their website.

    I’m not too familiar with “CH” or “mKg” units and I used an online converter – please feel free to correct me as in the US we just use the ol’ Horse Power and Newton Meter units. Sometime ft-lbs but I digress…..

    This means a 14% increase in power and 17% increase in torque. Also gotta factor in the removal of the heavier cat-converter. More if you swap out the exhaust. nominal weight cut (but still a cut) in some of the part delete/removals.

    I’ll be installing mine soon when it arrives in the mail. Ordered 10 APR 22 and still has not shipped as of this post. I am East-Coast USA. I’ll test mine out and provide better feedback when able.

    So I checked out that Badwinners comment. I think that is a bit misleading, they definitely are not getting a 14% increase in peak horsepower (that would mean it would put down 80 hp at the wheels). Potentially they are getting 14% power increase in the midrange (which is about what anyone gets with an exhaust and a Rottweiler performance tuned Power Commander).

     

    Either way, their power package is a pretty dang good value! I think you will like it and feel the difference for sure!

    Nice! I mean wouldn’t you rather just buy it all and get it all out of the way sooner so you can enjoy it longer?

    That’s how I always rationalize my motorcycle spending sprees haha
