Who out there has fitted a Dobeck EJK to their Scout?
Would like to hear what settings you currently have for your bike setup (exhaust, air filter etc) and what sort of fuel economy you are getting.
Will be interested to see what sort of variation is out there.

Cheers

Do you have EJK fitted to your Scout now OR thinking of fitting one in the future?

I HAD the DOBECK EJK fitted to my Vintage for 6 months played around with settings ended staying with factory Dobeck settings BUT if I was going to fit a fuel controller now I would buy the Dynojet PVCX flash tuner for your Scout I have a PVCX flash tune on my Vintage best performance mod you can buy for your Indian weather it's standard or stage 1 etc

Just as a matter of interest where did you guys purchase the Dobeck (for Scout 69) from and how much should I expect to pay?

I didn't buy Dobeck but I nearly did.  It was before Power Vision CX so I went with Power Commander V.  My review here talks about the pros and cons of Dobeck.

I'm sure someone else will chip in and answer your questions of where to buy and how much.

Got mine from the manufacturer http://www.techlusion.com/viewproduct.asp?vehicleid=737
This 1 is for the Scout 69 and Scout 60.
They seem to be a set price of $250USD as when i was looking i couldn't find anywhere that had them cheaper.
Depending on what you want to do the Dobeck is a good little unit for its price but it has its limitations. Basically it can only add fuel to stock ECU settings. If you're wanting more adjustability and full tuning capabilities then the PCV is the go.
Fitment wise it took maybe an hour and 3 beers but i also did at the same time as putting in a new air intake which makes install and access to the injectors much easier.

I'm considering PVCX after reading some limitations of Dobeck.

Ok so I have fitted the Dobeck with a S & S air filter. Just got back from a long run and fuel consumption has gone from 4.5 to 6??? I'm running the recommended stage 1 settings. Any ideas???

Did you use this method to measure your mileage?   http://www.indianmotorcycleforum.com.au/post/what-mileage-do-you-get-out-of-your-bike-8125623

I ask this because, any other method would have too many variables.  You may have enjoyed the new tune too much and twisted a little more than you use to as well... many possibilities.

Unfortunately no cruise control or average fuel usage on the Scout [frown]

Time to start playing with settings [wink]
I'm running Indian stage 1 exhaust with plugs knocked out and a DIY intake similar to The Warbonnet or Hartzell.
I reckon the settings from Dobeck still run a bit rich.
Off the top of my head i think mine currently sit at 2.5, 5.0, 4.0, 1.0, 5.0, 4.0 and i get about 20-22km/1lt.
Apparently cruise/idle (Green) is where you get the biggest fuel saving.

It could also be as V-Twin said....new toy, more power, more fun so la little harder on the throttle.
I think when i 1st put on my EJK my 1st tank i got about 16km/1lt

I did a 3000k plus run from Kapunda to Port Macquarie  return so working out fuel was easy. I was fully loaded but so was everbody else Triumph T120. HD CVO and mine was by far the thirstiest. Thank god Ive got a big tank(went from 460 per tank to 370?) or I would've been funning out before 200 ks. Im going to  get it Dyno'd and see what that brings.

hhmmm that does seems odd....as i understand it you probably won't get much of an improvement in fuel economy.
The Dobeck is better for just adding fuel to what is an already lean mixture and even more lean once you start with exhaust, air intake etc
But as to why it dropped that much i'm at a a loss.
Was it most open road from Kapunda to Port Macquarie??
The only thing i can potentially out it down to from limited long distance travel on the Scout might be wind resistance.
From my place up to my brothers in Port Macquarie is about 300k though i usually head out through Stroud and Gloucester and into the West side of Taree.
I actually got better fuel economy on those back roads than i did on the last section freeway from Taree to Port.

I am intrigued by the 460km range (now 370)....was it you i read about who had the 20lt tank modded up?

Yep 20+, Thats why when it took 19 litres but had only done about 370 ks I started to take a bit more notice. I'm running manufacturer settings for stage one but as mentioned rather than stuff around changing testing changing testing and so on I'll get a dyno and see if that will sort ot out. The dyno bloke thought 5 -5.5 should be achievable.  I'm in Phuket  at the moment and will attend to on teturn.

OK I understand how to get the first 3 settings but could someone explain how we get the last 3? All the instructions I have only seem to cover the first 3 (cruise, Accel and Full throttle)

The interactive demo at bottom of this page is handy a well. Gave me a better idea what changing each setting does.

Well finally had the dyno done with the Dobeck EJK and the settings they came up with were 2, 1, 1, 2, 4, 3 which produced 90HP at the rear wheel at 7250 RPM with Torque at 95 at about 5800RPM. Since then I've done a couple of tanks of fuel and am getting 4.5 -4.7 litres / 100K's. Gotta be happy with that.

Quite an interesting change in settings....is quite a drop in the 1st 3 settings than what comes stock on the Dobeck.
Glad to hear you got it running nicely [thumb]
