Question Power Commander... or... - February 12, 2009, 07:20 AM

I am looking to buy an Power Commander. I have herd there are other, possibly better options so I come here looking for your input. I plan to get my bike professionally tuned and would like to spend no more than $500... Obviously its flexible if worth it.

07 GSXR 750 Maybe Bazzaz has something for your bike too. I'd look into them.


P-L Production ---> MARRC TD

Buying a sportbike to go the speed limit (which you do not do in your car) is like buying a condom to look at it.

Do you buy a condom to look at it? No you buy it to fuck.
Thank you Rossi

the bazzaz is pricey but includes everthing quick shift ing mod. etc. but i think its like 1200 bones, i would get the PCIII becuz it sound to be more in your price range. call the shops in the area for prices about dyno tuning

$1200 is for the full monte on the Bazzaz unit with quickshifter, TC and a handlebar mounted TC switch. You buy the Bazzaz unit in different levels. The regular ECM piggyback unit, similar to the Power Commander, is similarly priced ( $300 - 350 maybe?) The unit with the quickshifter option is maybe twice that, and the unit with quickshifter and Traction Control is about a grand.

If your budget is $500, Bazzaz would be an option that you could consider.

Does't the Basic Bazzaz tune itself? I would think that would be a nice option for the casual rider like myself.

you can load premaps on the PC also but you always should run it on a dyno to make sure everything is working properly and make sure you air/fuel ratio is good.

The basic unit does not do that. You'd need to add their air-fuel mapping unit ($350 retail). It uses an O2 sensor that would need to be plumbed onto your exhaust system if it doesn't already have one.

I would love that if I didn't run really rich and backfire on decel because I took off the cat and replaced to stock pipe.

Suspension is another ball game that is going to have to wait till summer or fall.

We would be happy to tune your gsxr. If you can bring it by the shop by this Saturday the tune should run you $300. We are a Dynojet authorized tuning center and reseller but $200 for a new PC3 would be below what we could sell them for.
