2006 GSXR600 Power Commander Question - March 6, 2010, 02:20 PM

Im installing a Power Commander in a 2006 GSXR600 and the instructions are saying for me use a wire tap to tap into the pink/black wire on the Throttle Position Wiring harness...Thats a tight fit! Anyone have any issues with this or tapped into that wire in a different place?

Don't use the wire tap. It has a bad connection and will leave you high and dry at a stop light (ask me how I know...) Your best bet is to strip the wire and solder it together. I have not had any troubles since doing that. Good luck.

Also, the harness that plugs into the TPS comes out so you can more easily do what you need to do. It took me a while to get it off of mine though...

Yeah the wire taps are a nightmare. Cut wire. Strip ends. Slide on heat shrink. Solder the three wires together.

this is the correct way. It also will limit the ability for a short to occur at the tap in, hopefully making your PC work a little more reliably. Don't forget to shrink wrap the wiring when you are done to help with moistureproofing.

Yeah. Thats what I was planning to do. I just couldn't believe Power Commander was actually saying to use one of those plastic wire taps! I was just wondering if anyone followed the line farther back and spliced into there instead of near the harness since there seems to be only about 5 inches of wire to use. Not a lot of wire to mess with..

I did it by the book the first time.. It became a problem and I ended up doing it again. I would also recommend you carefully solder the wires.
