Question Power Commander for GSXR, Where do you Shop for parts - May 24, 2010, 11:59 AM

I've owned a GSXR600 for three years. I Added a BMC Air and Scorpion Slip-On Exhaust. I am interested in getting PCIII for the bike but is it really a big performance jump?

for those who have the PC, do you use the Ignition module? If you don't Race on the track will it still have benefits?

Where do you shop for motoparts, Right now the best resource I've used is Motorcycle Superstore

Good question, only way to know is for someone to provide some dyno tests. I have one on my bike because it came with it, now if it actually works or does anything I don't know. The bike runs fine so I've been too lazy to download a map other then the stock one it's running.

I purchased my GSXR with a Bazazz fuel commander. So that is another option you can look into. http://www.bazzaz.net/bz1/

I know they usually recommend having a fuel commander as to keep the fuel/air ratio running correctly after you switch the air filter and slip on.

I agree. I just put my PCV on my 09 Gixxer (which was a pain in the ass for the TPS) today. Took it out for a run, but didnt really notice any difference.

your not gonna notice any change unless you have it tuned and mapped....now im not just saying this because we have a dyno and do custom tunes on a daily basis..its just the facts...so if you want to notice a difference have it dyno tuned because it only comes loaded with a zero map and that changes absolutely nothing...on average we can usually get you between 5-10 horsepower depending on the bike and setup

you will notice it if your a speed freak and use your top end alot. It willl also smooth things out if its tuned properly. Had one tuned for my FZ6. I liked it but was it a huge difference? no. Is it worth it for the streets? No. Would I buy another? Only if I had a full system and a after market air filter? Would I ever waste that much money for a ffull system on a 600 street bike? No cheaper to sell and buy a 750 0r 1000. just my 2 cents.

so no you dont need it. I like the blue flame backfires anyway.

DynoJet usually has a good selection of maps for various setups like yours which work very well without fine-tuning. Typically you'll feel a difference like running the next higher octane gas or octane booster.

You can also get an auto tuner for DynoJet or AFM for Bazzaz instead of dyno tuning. When I used the AFM with my Bazzaz system, the performance difference felt like running 100 octane versus 93 on the track after 2 sessions.

I wouldnt do it, unless you plan on a full exhaust upgrade and aftermarket filter....JMO.

Not to mention it really isnt noticeable unless you do alot of track days or have a dedicated race bike.
