Re: do I need a power comander
I'm no expert in the least bit, but I also got the Power Commander before I got my exhaust. But I quickly replaced my stock mufflers with Yoshi slip-ons and KNEW that I needed to remap the bike bacause of the change in flow. I heard this early on, and knew that when you change the exhaust and the flow you're going to affect the fuel mixture and any bike is naturally going to run richer or leaner. Sure, you're going to notice a difference with the new muffs, but my suggestion is to get a Power Commander. That way, you can tweak it to your exact mods. And ironically, there is a map designed specifically for bikes with Two Brothers slip-ons! My bike ran so much better after I changed the map once I got my new mufflers and removed the cat, plus added a K&N air filter.
So anyway, I would say, from experience, that yes it would be a great idea to install a Power Commander. Everyone I spoke to or who I listened to in forums said it was an absolute MUST HAVE!
Good luck, and let me know what you decide and how it all turns out!
