Question Power Commander...Map Share?

I will profess my ignorance up front... (Airfuel, don't be mad!)

I'm thinking our bikes are made the same and tuned the same from the factory. Except for the differences in altitude, and the fact certainly that not all the bikes are in a state of optimal tune, couldn't we share a custom PCIII map from around the same altitude, and get better performance than if we just went with the stock map?

Of course, we'd need to take into consideration if we're getting a custom map from someone who has a full race exhaust system, upgraded eprom, BMC filter and etc. We really should roughly "match" our builds before using such maps. Thoughts on this? Thanks.

Nice idea, but hence the word 'custom'. I think I would prefer to get a map tailored to my machine.

1/ Bikes are all quite different.
2/ Please don't take this the wrong way, but there again there is probably only one way you will take it, my custom map cost me over 100, why should I share it? would you like to pay something towards it?
I hope this doesn't come over too aggressive

It just rattles me sometimes thats all, it's not the first time this type of question has been asked
I once had new garage roof designed and some cheeky twat asked me if I minded if he photocopied my plans

Help pay the costs...

...I think that's reasonable. I didn't take that as aggressive at all. Me personally, I wouldn't expect something for nothing, particularly when a custom map runs about $250 to $300. Right now I don't have a PCIII for my Brutale, but it's on my wish list. My thinking is, if our bikes are almost 100% the same rolling out of the factory, why wouldn't our results be the same?

If you live at 450 ft. above sea level (as I do in Nashville), and hypothetically we both have an Arrow midpipe and BMC air filter...technically speaking, what differences remain that would make the same custom map not work on both?

Anyway, I've had both a GSXR1000 and a ZX-10R with PCIII's. Both the forum sites (http://www.gixxer.com/ & http://www.zx-10r.net/) had folks who were fairly open with sharing PC maps, both custom and contrived . Not everybody of course, and for the reasons you mentioned.

hey man, I have an arrow midpipe and a bmc air filter. If you have some means of sharing it, let me know.

mainly, if you can figure out the altitude of western pa and if it's near yours, then I bet it's a go, right?
