    OK just bought this bike and it has a power commander, I don’t know shit about these things. I don’t know who owned the bike before me or how he was riding it, So I guess me question is what do I do with it? Is there a factory reset or WTF. I’m in Austin TX so if you know of someone or a shop that could get me headed in the right direction I would appreciate it.

    @shawnsay I dont think there is a factory setting on those. You would have to remove it in order to allow the bikes computer to do the fuel mapping. Basicilly they allow you use a laptop to tune your air fuel ratio allowing for optimum performance. This can be done by downloading a basic map for the mods you have or by having someone dyno tune it. My guess is your bike just has the yosi map (125-003) from the link provided. I wouldnt touch it until you find out exactly what mods are on the bike. I.E. if your bike has an aftermarket air filter or not. Check out this link to learn more info about it.

    Anybody have an idea what it would cost to get it dyno tuned? That sounds like the best route, let a proffesional handle it.

    When I had my car street tuned it cost 250 but that was not on a dyno. I think the guy wanted 350 to tune it on the dyno. I’m guessing it would be about the same for the bike.
