I was wondering if I could install the Power Commander V and Autotune on my 2015 N1K, but the dynojet website does not show a unit available for the 2014 and 2015 models, so I emailed them asking when they would have one for the 15 models and this was the response I got:

I don’t really know if/when we will have local access to this bike model for product testing.

Let me know if you have any further questions.

So, then I responded with the following:

"Am I correct in assuming that the PCV that you do have for the older model years would not be compatible with the 2015?"

Dynojet's response kind of surprised me:

Well….assumption is the mother of all f***-ups; but if you must assume, you might assume that the PC5 (PN: 17-055) for 2014-2015 Kawasaki Z1000 is compatible.

Afterall, the PC5 (PN: 17-021) is certainly compatible with 2010-2013 Z1000 and Ninja 1000 models.

Let me know if you have any further questions.

So, my question is, has anyone used the PCV and Autotune for the 2014-2015 Z1000 on an N1K? If so, what has your experience been?

With Ivan's ECU re flash do you need to do any mods? Such as block out plates for emissions? My bike is bone stock. Just want the less engine braking. But I don't want to get into other mods to make his programming work. Also, does it impact the high and low power modes? I like having the low power mode when it rains and don't want it to go away.

When did Ivan release the 14-15 ninja1000 mod? Must have been recent. Either way, excited to see it ready and looking forward to getting it done at some point.

He must have JUST released it, I was on his page last week, and it still wasn't ready yet. Checked just now, and it's ready and for sale for 2014-2015 models.
woohoo!

Has anyone done a full Ivan's performance upgrade with the ECU reflash, exhaust, air filter, block-off plate, and PCV? I would be really interested to hear a before & after review.

I think it was last week. 350 bucks and so far the reviews have been very favorable. It wasn't the 20HP gain that the 2013 and prior got ( as a matter of fact the 2013's may actually make a couple more HP) but the ride-ability sounds amazing. He spent some real time on the tune and there are lot of very excited people.

I have spent 350 bucks on less. As soon as I can find a dead weekend I will send mine to him :)

I will let you all know about mine. I sent mine off today and will have back middle to late next week with shipping. The reviews of the two guys so far are that it made the bike much more ridable and also some better performance gains in 1-3rd like the Gen 3's. I'm excited to get it back and see. I will let you all know as soon as I find out.
It's too darn hot to ride here right now anyway....

I've Ivan's re-flash on my Yamaha FZ1 & it's the best mod I've had outside of suspension. Give him a call, you'll be very pleased with the services he provides.

I spoke, with the Kawasaki dealer and any flashing or power commander voids the warranty. Plus, if Dynojet is going to respond & cuss to you, they are simply trash. Don't buy from, that uneducated trash.

I had my ECU flashed by Ivan while my bike was still under warranty. Besides, these bikes have proven to be near bulletproof. However I can understand if someone has reservations about modifying their bike during the warranty. If it were me the first thing I would do with the bike is remove the ECU and send it off to Ivan.

Talk about uneducated trash. You responded to a three year old post and assumed the question and answer section applies to 2018.


Dynojet might not be awesome, but your post towards them is silly. This thread dates back to 2015. Back then, they had no idea if they had a powercommander that fit a 2014 ninja 1000. They answered honestly, and the poster asked them the same question than the asked in the first place.


At that point, they know they are not dealing with a high functioning person, and had to answer a bit more forcefully or question three will appear.



Of course a person risks their warranty when they modify a motorcycle.
