Powercommander question for the guru's here

So I've just put a new Leo Vince bolt-on on my bike about 6-8 months ago, and have been running the Two Bro's custom map that I've had on the bike since I bought it (it originally had a Two Bro's bolt on).

I just was curious and called Powercommander today and they told me that since they don't have the Leo-Vince bolt on on their website for the 929RR, I can run the Arrow bolt-on, or Micron bolt-on, with the stock air filter setting and it would be fine. He told me that Two Brothers bolt-ons seems to run a little richer than other exhausts, so the two listed above would be better to run

I'm running a K&N filter on the bike as well, and he told me that it wouldn't make any difference between a stock filter and K&N filter.

Can anyone that knows powercommanders a little bit give me any info on if this guy was blowing smoke at me, or if I should run the Micron or Arrow bolt-on maps he told me I could run.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Without having a custom map made by a competent Dynojet shop, it's hit or miss with downloading maps from their website. I would ditch the K&N as they cause a loss, not gain, in horsepower in 929's.

It's BMC. I've never used either...the stock filter works well enough for me.

Hey, why not get a custom map made to suit your bike? Remember to change the K&N if you are going to get one set up though!

Yep, OEM filter works best.
