do I need a power comander

I have changed the stock exhaust with the 2 brothers, it is running fine and not missing or cutting buth when I pull the trottle hard from around 5rpm I notice that it refs up to 10 to quickly, I never felt all this power before on my bike, do you think that the bike is in need of a power comander or this is normal?

all I know is that this two brothers changed the sound and performance especially at the low end

Re: do I need a power comander

I have a two bros s/o on my bike with a power commander and I love it. Smooths out the power and makes the mid range a little more usable.

Re: do I need a power comander

did you notice a lot more power on mid range before installing the power comander?

Re: do I need a power comander

i don't know, i put a power commander on before I got my exhaust. I feel that the power commander is more important than a slipon

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!

I guess that explains why it was revving so easily?
Have you done a recent oil change?

How much mileage have you done on that oil?
Is it the same as the oil that was in it before?

Change it back to the stuff you ran before.
I had exactly the same thing when I switched to full-synth on my GSXR.

Not true.
My bike did exactly what yours is doing.
I drained the synth out, emptied the filter and put the semi-synth in that I'd always run and it was like new immediately. It never, ever played up again and I still have it.
If the full-synth is fresh just give it to somebody else that runs it successfully.

Thats funny cause when I read your first post, the way you explained it sounded like a clutch going out.

Rip the clutch cover off and replace or scrub the disc with some sand paper man!
