    I would take it to a motorcycle shop that knows what they are doing, get it tuned properly, and you’ll be happier in the long run. I didnt think there was a difference, then got it done, and was blown away at what I was missing in the low end power band.

    I think i’m just going to put it out there…i would have figured u noticed the pc once u picked up the bike lol. I’m guessing u keep u papers one u rather in the tail of the bike. Anyway what u can do if u want to explore the power commander u can buy the usb cable from dyno jet and look through their library of base maps for ur bike of course the admin is correct by saying u should take it to a shop that is trained on mapping. IMO that power commander is like finding a bar of gold on the tail of ur bike…congrats on the find bit jealous since i have yet to buy one :cry:

    You need a USB to mini usb cable. Most stores carry it such as Target, Walmart, etc. Plug the mini usb side into the top middle of the PC unit, the other end to your laptop USB port. Turn the bike on and start it. It should show you a map and may have a custom map already. There is a 9 volt battery hook up also to power the Power commander, but you probably don’t have the connnector unless it is hidden on the bike like the PC was.

    As Admin said, get it to a shop for a custom map. You will thank yourself later.

    @Albert I know I feel very fortunate lol.. I walked around with a huge smile on my face for the rest of the day. I wanted to get one but then decided against it as I wasnt that good of a rider and they are expensive.

    @Albert and @poppy my uncle played around with it a bit and test drove it so i think its ok for now but i will eventually get it to a shop. whats the purpose of the PC? from what I understand its like a chip in a car and fluctuates whether it gets more or less gas/air in the engine and increases/decreases power.

    @Roman you have the basic understanding of the power commander. The main reason for having the unit is that when you start adding mods like a full exhaust, velocity stacks, engine work, etc. you will change the environment of the combustion chamber where you’ve introduced more air flow into the engine which results in a lean air/fuel ratio in turn decreases the power and life of the engine to an extent. the power commander like chipping a car will allow to modify the values in the ecu’s map to add fuel to various rpm and throttle input and compensate for the increase air flow. The power commander will allow you to improve your performance of the engine based on your needs and modifications made. The unit is great to have and I will like to get one or one of the other units in the market to learn and play with the bike to see how everything works. But if your uncle says it’s all good then you should be fine. You are not required to have one if you just have a slip-on and stock air filter. Of course adjusting the fuel map will improve on those mods.

    How will a k&n air filter plus a slip on effect my bike without the power commander? I have a filter on the way.

    Welcome to the show bud, im sure youve done some searches on this. Typically on fuel injected bikes , the K&N filter and can swap wont be too much for your ECU to compensate for. But as a rule of thumb with Fi bikes , once you start the mod process , its always good to have a programmer to dial everything in. The power commanders offer a real good tech suppoprt and have multiple maps from mild to wild. but for now , you should be fine with the simple K&N/can swap. A buddy has an 04 600rr with the same upgrade and it scoots along fine.

    +1 on what Bam said – the bike tends to run lean on factory settings, due to EPA regs. It will continue running lean even with a filter/can swap. In extreme cases, it will run too lean and have starting issues, thus the advantage of FI. Carbs cant compensate for that change and need a fatter jet in order to push more fuel. On FI, the ECU makes that change for you…I’m rambling.
    Anyways, you’re fine without a PC unless you plan on riding your bike for like 15 years. The lean condition might scorch your pistons.

    @thebearded1. I was talking to my friend about getting a full system and having to get a new power commander when he told me that you can get your stock ECU and get it “flashed”. Ever heard of this?

    Yes, I’ve heard of it. But, I have no idea how to do it or if it works…I assume it does.
