    SCOM Installation concern?

    Hey guys.

    My buddy and I installed the Scom and followed the instructions exactly step by step.

    The only step we did not follow is disconnecting the battery, could that be the cause for my scom not working?

    The only part that matters is the little resistor that you plug the pin into the harness and ground on the engine block. Do that wrong and no speed cut removal for you

    You did count the pins from the wire side of the connector.

    Well the biggest misconception about the SCOM is that you're going to GAIN speed. The RPM drop is after 10 or so seconds so you're already going to have your true WOT speed and your ski should goto 7600rpms. Without the SCOM the RPMs after 10 seconds will drop to 7300ish and put you back down in the 60s.

    If you're going WOT and at 7600rpms without ever dropping.. SCOM works. 70.1 on a stock ski is right on the money of what a bone stock FZ with a SCOM does. Every ski is different. I think mine did 71.6 on a cool morning.

    I did 70.1mph without the SCOM connected though.

    So it's safe to say the SCOM will not provide any speed gains correct? So it was a waste of money?! LOL. In other words.....

    Your ski without scom can only do WOT for 10ish seconds then the ECU closes the throttle body to reduce the RPMs. These skis are fly by wire.

    It's a very important first step otherwise there's no point doing any other mods. The point of the scom is to unlock WOT so you can do things like ride plate and intake to get to 75-76mph. It doesn't add any power. It just unlocks the cutoff.

    Some people do see 1-2mph with SCOM because they'll ride out for a long time at WOT to extract that extra speed that you couldn't do without the SCOM.

    I didn't see any additional top speed with the SCOM. I just got to go 71mph for longer than 1 second until the fun police kicked in and slowed me down to 60 something.

    If you can do 70mph for 20 seconds, SCOM works. Or just watch the tach. Should stay at 7500+

    Well, I guess I regret doing the SCOM then. LOL. I'll just do my bolt ons and get a Dean's Team Flash
