This is a thorough tutorial video on how to install a DynoJet Power Commander V EFI tuner on Indian touring models such as the Chief, Chieftain, Springfield, and Roadmaster. In this video, we use a 2018 Indian Chieftain Limited. We show you in detail how to access all the areas you'll need for the install, to include removing the fuel tank, side panels, dash panel etc. We then show you how to route and connect all the plugs and wiring, hook the PCV to a laptop, operate the software, create an auto tune map, and upload it into the Power Commander V. We show you useful tips and tricks along the way to make the install a breeze. You'll be up and running and your bike will be properly tuned in no time!
Save your money and don't rely on a dealership or technician to do this for you. After watching this tutorial video you will definitely be able to install the Dynojet Power Commander V yourself right on the kickstand in your own garage! No specialty tools are needed and you can do the install right on the kickstand.
Why the Power Commander V EFI Tuner?
If you get new header pipes, mufflers, or air intake on your Indian motorcycle then you need to re-map the electronic fuel injection (EFI) so your bike will run optimally and you'll gain added performance.
That is where the Power Commander V comes into play. We show you how to locate and download a canned EFI map from Dynojet based on your particular pipes and intake setup. We make this process super easy for you to understand. You can really increase the performance and efficiency of your Indian with the Power Power Commander V, so let us show you how & take the stress out of it.
The great thing about the Power Commander V versus the Indian dealer basic EFI download is that with the PCV you can re-map your EFI at any time in the event you change pipes or air intake down the road. With the Indian dealership basic download, you have to return and pay for a new download every time you need to re-map your EFI.
You will need a PC for the Power Commander V, so you can download and upload the proper EFI maps.
If you later want to become a tuning expert you can really mess around with maps on your PCV using the software. You can adjust individual cells, and make your own custom maps based on a ton of readings. That process is for tuning experts only and not realistic for the everyday biker, so that level of tuning is not shown in this video. You can damage your bike if you start doing that kind of advanced tuning unless you really spend a lot of time doing it and understanding it.
This is a simple yet comprehensive tutorial video made by bikers for bikers, so you know you will understand it. Don't get stressed and spend hours upon hours scouring the internet for bits and pieces of info from less than credible persons. Get this video and get out riding already!
Keep the rubber side down and the shiny side up!

As always I’m watching your videos and keeping up with any trips or maintenance tips you all have. I am planning a trip out west (I am in Ohio) and I have heard rumors that there are places where 91 octane is not available? I’m headed past Mt Rushmore then to Washington state then down the Pacific Coast Highway. Any truth in the rumors? If so would an octane booster be recommended? You guys do many trips so I trust every word you all say. Keep up the good work. There are many of us followers all over the United States!
Matt Couchman says
It’s possible that you might not be able to find high octane in some small towns, but generally it’s not a problem. We each carry a bottle of Amsoil octane booster in out saddle bag as a back up plan. You’ll love the ride down the Pacific Coast Highway. We took it all the way down to California a few years ago. We had no problem getting high octane fuel.
Ride Safe & Ride Often!

Revzilla and Amazon both show that the PC5 isn’t compatible with Indian Chief DH 2019 models. Do you know if this is the case or just hasn’t been certified on this? Your videos are amazing, just finished prepping for the Freedom True Dual header swap and was hoping to do this as well but didn’t want to buy w/o knowing it’d work.
Ryan Urlacher says
I’d go straight to Dynojet on this. They’ll be able to get you hooked up.
