Power Commander?

I need a power commander for my GSXR 750 and i was wondering if the installation is as easy as said?

Also, I assumed it needed to be calibrated or ran on a dyno to properly work. Can someone break it down for me?

As I said in my previous post, I got a hold of a gixxer 750 with a modified motor and I was told that the PC would smooth out the accleration since the motor isnt mapped to the bike or something along those lines.

since you have motor work done, and im assuming you have aftermarket exhaust and air filters (if not, that would be the next mod on my list even before a custom map/tune), a pc3 is deffinately needed. and with the modded motor, you will certianly need a custom map done. and not one from power commanders website or anything.

Yeah, youre right. This is the rundown.

"It had 17k miles on the origanal motor. K&N airfilter, scorpian slip on exhuast, crg ajustable levers,hot bodies undertail kit. the motor thats in it now is an ama race motor,it runs strong the only thing it needs to complete it is a power commander then it should push about 182 hp from the motor."


Your explaination sounds great, thats what I expected. Does anyone know how much this would cost? I know PC goes for about $300 but how much for custom maps and tweaks?

Another couple hundred bucks from a reputable tuner. Best thing is make sure you have completed all mods and then get it done. Makes it all well worth the money.

mine was 300.00. and worth every bit of it.


just make sure you save the custom map on your pc. occasionally your power commander will loose the map stored. its happened to me before and a bunch of others.
