Yoshimura R&D of America Announces New 2011 and 2012 PIM-2 Applications

Yoshimura has been a leader in EFI management for years. The PIM-2 and DATA Box are examples of Yoshimura’s leading technology that give the user a complete EFI adjustability and data management solution. Check out our race-proven PIM units that sport a long track record of performance, durability, and ease of use. New 2011 and 2012 applications are now available.

PIM-2

Yoshimura introduces the PIM-2, the evolution of our original Dirt Bike/ATV fuel injection adjustment “PIM” device. PIM-2 installs easily, typically in under 30 minutes, using simple plug-n-play technology. Plug the PIM-2 into the stock wiring harness; mount it to your bike using the supplied mounting kit, and you are ready to race! The PIM-2 comes pre-loaded with two separate fuel injection maps for either the Yoshimura slip-on or full exhaust system or the adjustability is limitless and easy. If those two maps are not enough, there are dozens of maps downloadable for FREE on the Yoshimura website. No matter what pipe brand or engine modification configuration you have, we have map downloads available from the Yoshimura website that make it easy to obtain maps for virtually any application. Simply plug your laptop into the PIM-2 through a supplied USB cable and you can custom make your own fuel injection maps in minutes.

DATA BOX

The optional DATA kit consists of an air fuel sensor and amplifier box that plugs into the PIM-2 and allows for self-mapping of the motorcycle. Self-mapping means that as the user runs the bike on a dyno or on a closed course, the DATA Box automatically calculates the required fuel adjustment at each RPM and throttle position to reach the user-selectable target air fuel ratio.

The DATA Box offers an alternative way for mapping without the time or cost of a custom dyno tune. For the rider looking for maximum performance, a dyno tune together with the DATA is the way to go. The DATA Box mapping software allows for the user to easily enter the target air fuel ratio, start, stop, and review the results of the self-mapping function. Once the recommended adjustments have been reviewed, the user can either apply all of the suggested adjustments or just a certain range with a few simple clicks of the mouse.

The kit comes with all of the required hardware, but may require modification of the exhaust pipe to accept the air fuel sensor fitting.

DATA BOX FEATURES:

  • Reads air fuel
  • Works with PIM-2 self-mapping feature
  • Dyno or on track self mapping
  • Computes fuel map for air fuel ratio settings from 11.0 to 15.0
  • SST sensor bung included, optional Ti sensor bung available
  • Sets fuel adjustments at each throttle position and RPM range
  • Plug and play installation with the PIM-2 unit (may require pipe modification to accept sensor)
  • Allows for quick and easy dyno tuning
  • User-adjustable target air fuel ratio for performance and fuel economy
  • Part Number: R-433-Data – MSRP: $429.00

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Tyla Rattray grabbed the 250 class overall win for the second-straight year at MX 338 in Southwick, Mass with an impressive 2-1 moto finish during Round 10 of the AMA Motocross Championship series. Finishing just behind him in second was teammate Dean Wilson with a 3-2 moto result, which extended his points lead in the class championship to 38 points. Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto also extended his lead in the 450 class championship to eight points after he finished second overall with a 2-4. Jake Weimer remained consistent as he finished sixth overall for the second-straight race aboard the 2012 Kawasaki KX(TM)450F. Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Blake Baggett came from behind to finish fifth overall with a 9-6, while Broc Tickle showed speed finishing seventh overall with a 5-12.

Back Into Second

After a tough round at Unadilla, Rattray was able to bounce back in a big way as he grabbed his fourth overall victory of the season. In the first moto, Rattray made his move to the front and was able to finish out the 30 minutes plus two laps in second. After a few set-up changes, Rattray came out ready to lock up the overall and after passing for the lead on the third lap, he captured his fourth moto win of the season.

“The track was a lot rougher than we were thinking it would be in the first moto so we made some changes and the bike was perfect in the second moto,” said Rattray. “I’ve ridden on tracks like this all my life and I think it helps a lot when we come to a track like Southwick. It’s obviously different than anything we see all year and I’m always happy to come here.”

More Points For Wilson

Following his win last week at Unadilla, Wilson entered the race in Southwick with a 25-point gap in the standings. With his smart riding in the deep sand of Southwick, Wilson was able extend that lead to 38 points over second with another podium finish with a 3-2 moto score.

“I didn’t do the greatest here last year so I wanted to come in and put together two good motos and see what happened,” said Wilson. “It was nice to be up on the podium again and add more points to my lead. I would really like to win again this season. We’ll see what happens at Steel City.”

Race By Race

Villopoto started the day with the top qualifying time, but track conditions continued to change as rain started to fall. In the first moto, Villopoto got a good start, but was pushed back to fifth after the second turn. He moved his Kawasaki KX(TM)450F into second and made a push in the final laps, but couldn’t make a pass in time. In the second moto, conditions were even worse and Villopoto did what he needed to keep his bike on two wheels to finish fourth.

“It was pretty gnarly out there during the second moto,” said Villopoto. “Even with the sand, the track was slick and it was hard to get into a groove. I knew I wanted to make sure I didn’t go down because it is really hard to get going again with your hands covered in mud and sand. I would have liked to have left with more than a one-point gain in the championship, but we did get another point ahead of second.”

Another Great Finish

In his rookie motocross season in the 450 class, Weimer continued to get good starts and maintain his position near the front. The starts were important at Southwick, and Weimer was able to put his 2012 Kawasaki KX450F just outside the top-five for the second-straight week.

“It’s nice to finally feel like I’m getting into a groove with my riding,” said Weimer. “I am definitely feeling more comfortable now. I was so close to a top-five this week and I know that I’m riding more consistent. Hopefully I’ll be able to put us into the top-five, not just outside of it.”

Managing the Roost

With the mixture of rain and sand at the MX 338 track, Baggett had to tackle conditions he isn’t normally used to. In both motos he had to make charges to the front from mid-pack and in both motos made it inside the top-10. Showing off his never-give-up attitude, he finished the day with a 9-6 moto score that was good enough for fifth overall.

“In the first moto I was making good progress, but had to pull off my goggles with just a few laps to go,” said Baggett. “With those conditions, I had to come in so I lost a few positions there. My second moto wasn’t much better. I am just glad to get out of here healthy and I’m definitely looking forward to next week at Steel City.”

Showing What He’s Got

After a year of battling bad luck, Tickle was finally able to put his speed up front as he finished fifth in the first moto at Southwick. Unfortunately the bad luck would follow him to the second moto where an early moto crash pushed him back to 26th on the first lap. Showing his determination once again, Tickle made it all the way up to 12th to finish seventh overall.

“I am happy to finally be able to show my speed in one moto, but then I have a bad second moto and can’t put together what I think could have been a podium finish,” said Tickle. “I felt really good coming into the weekend. Despite all the bad luck, I can at least say that I haven’t given up during any moto when I have been able to come through the pack. I just hope everyone can see that.”

Top-10 for Junk Yard Dog

While he’s already attended two rounds this season, 46-year-old Kawasaki rider John Dowd was happy to have the AMA Motocross Championship back in his home state of Massachusetts. Since 1987, Dowd has been racing at his hometown track and despite being the most senior racer on the track, he scored an impressive 9-8 moto finish to end the day eighth overall.

Hurricane Warning

While Massachusetts declared a state of emergency in preparation for Hurricane Irene, the racers took to the track in wet conditions. The fans weren’t afraid to come out and see their favorite racers as attendance was better than expected despite surrounding conditions.

“It was great to see all the fans come out considering the weather and hurricane warnings,” said Weimer. “I was thinking the hurricane would have scared everyone away, but it seemed to be a really good turnout.”

Final Stretch

The series hits the final stretch with only two races to go as the series heads to Steel City Raceway in Delmont, Pa. over Labor Day weekend. Wilson holds on to a 38-point lead over his teammate Rattray with only 100 points available over the next two rounds, while Villopoto will try to extend his eight-point lead in the 450 class.

Newcomer Justin Bogle Coming Into His Own for GEICO Honda Team

With two professional 250cc races in the Lucas Oil AMA Motocross Championship under his belt, GEICO Honda’s Justin Bogle is gaining confidence with each lap.

After a solid fourth-place ride in the sloppy conditions of the second moto at Southwick last week, Bogle can’t wait for what the last two races of the season, including this Saturday’s Steel City National, will bring.

“I’m stoked for this weekend,” Bogle said. “I think the Steel City track fits my style a little better.” Bogle said his learning curve has been getting easier from race to race.

“Last week was so much easier than the first week,” Bogle said. “There wasn’t as much information to process and learn in a short time. Knowing how things work and what to expect helps a ton. I’m feeling more comfortable with everything.”

Another GEICO Honda rider quickly adapting to new circumstances is Justin Barcia, who won his first outdoor moto of the season last week aboard an American Honda CRF450R.

“After that moto win I’ve got a lot of confidence now,” Barcia said. “I know I can go fast. It’s not going to be an easy track. It’s probably going to be pretty hard-packed. I just have to race as smart as I have been.”

Eli Tomac will try to bounce back from a rough weekend in the Southwick quagmire and work his way up the 250cc standings with just four motos left in the season. “I should do pretty decent there this weekend,” Tomac said. “I got fourth overall at Steel City last year so I’m looking forward to getting back there. It’s all about getting a good start and making it happen.”

Tomac is 18 points behind Kyle Cunningham for fourth place in the season standings.

Jimmy DeCotis will also be racing for GEICO Honda this weekend in this third race back from an elbow injury that shelved him for much of the outdoor season. Wil Hahn will not be racing while he recovers from a shoulder injury.

Practice for the Steel City National gets under way 8:30 a.m. EDT on Saturday with opening ceremonies starting at 12:40 p.m. FUEL TV will air the first motos of the 450 and 250 classes starting at 1 p.m. EDT. SPEED TV will show the second 450 moto at 7 p.m. and the 250 moto at 8 p.m.

Troy Lee Designs / Lucas Oil / Honda Struggles at Southwick

Injuries, flooding, destruction… and that was just the Troy Lee Designs / Lucas Oil / Honda team. As Hurricane Irene tore its way up the eastern seaboard the damage was widespread and the Southwick 338 Motocross was one that the TLD team would like to forget.

On the third lap of the opening practice Christian Craig crashed on the finish line jump and the subsequent contact with the sand would mark the end of Christian’s summer. He suffered a fractured scaphoid bone (navicular) in the crash and he will likely undergo surgery this week to repair it. Despite the low moments it has been a good summer for Craig and the TLD team is proud to have him in their camp. From everyone at Troy Lee Designs: Heal up quickly, Christian!

The second 250 practice was equally disappointing. Travis Baker hit the sand and fractured his clavicle. It has been a rough season for Baker and this was not the way he was hoping to finish off the season. The upbeat Baker will be back at it before long, preparing for the 2012 season.

Cole Seely went 15-31 for 20th overall. That is not the day the two-time supercross winner was shooting for. Cole made it approximately 300 feet in the first moto before making contact with the ground. He would remount and work his way back up into the points in what was a solid ride. Moto two saw Seely get all the way to turn number two before crashing. He would get the privilege of eating sand and mud again for 35 minutes, this time returning to 31st position after a stop in the mechanics area. I think Cole is just happy to get out of Massachusetts alive.

Tarah Geiger was the team’s only bright spot as she put in great rides in both motos [2-5] to score second overall on the day. Gieger is a natural in the sand and it showed at Southwick. She maintains a solid third in the points chase and adds a trophy to her collection from 2011.

If the crew can manage to find flights home this week they might just get things ready and be able to attend this weekend’s national in Pennsylvania. The last anyone heard from them they were in a bowling alley somewhere outside of Hartford grumbling about United Airlines. One thing is for sure: There is only one-way to go from here and that is up. Expect a hard charging team of Seely and Gieger to represent well for the last two rounds of the series.
