Default BD sidekick experience

I got my new sidekick installed on my 16 proclimb and it's not pulling rpms and acting really boggy on the bottom end...almost like it's bad mapping, maybe timing. I don't know if you tried a new sidekick on your proclimb yet I'd love to hear other experiences thanks

Sounds like it needs some tuning. Turbo's are never turn key they always need dialing in.

Not true. There are lots of turbo sleds out there that don't need tuning.

Default Sidekick

Sidekick showed up for my holdover 16 limited today. Are you changing to the 21/49 gears with it or running the stock 19/50 setup?

I couldn't get it dialed with the mag weights so I put my mds adjustable weights in @ 77 grams and it's a lot better..I usually ride around 7-8k feet. Let me know how you guys set up your clutching and let me know how it runs I was told to set up the mag weights 1-2-2-1 from heal to toe, it ran really good if I pinned it after 5000 rpm but out of the hole it would just fall on its face. I premixed the first tank and I thought maybe it was just running super rich so I drained that gas, changed the plugs and put fresh gas (2.5 gallons of 110 the rest 91 non ethanol and it still wasn't running good on the bottom but last night I put my mds weights in and it ran really good. I think it could still be a little better we'll see how it goes.

You didn't get the optional mta did you. The basic 2860 has better bottom end throttle response.
