Anyone install PC3r on stock bike?

I mean, without mods to the exhaust? Sorry Rocket, but I didn't want to hijack your thread.
Call me a flatulent, toadlicking wuss, but I'm not after an 8% horsepower gain when I'm not using but 70% now. I need to put some more miles on the bike and do a couple track days before I will come close to utilizing the stock numbers. Plus, I live close to Laguna Seca and would like to try a school there. They are fairly strict about noise abatement. So...... Would the Power Commander smooth out throttle response, making it worthwhile to add without the exhaust system change?

I did on my 929. Was definitly better, smoothed it out nicely. I might not do the 3R, but I'd do the PC3 for sure...

It'll help, but don't expect monstrous improvements

I heard it does wonders for a 600RR as well. Supposedly, stock, its fueling is all over the map.

Re: Anyone install PC3r on stock bike?

You probably woudn't see any peak hp improvement. What you will get is a fatter torque curve all around. That meaning rideability and throttle response will be much better. Remember, the oems map for epa, mileage and noise. Dynojet maps for power.

Umm, ok, but only because you asked: zenblader, you're a flatulent, toadlicking wuss




The PCIIIr should (it did on my and others' bikes) smooth out throttle response. Getting the "r" is pretty much a waste of money, though.

Re: Anyone install PC3r on stock bike?

I put my PC3 on and got an extra 8bhp at the wheel, better fuel economy and it smoothed things out -before the PC I had some points on my fuel curve getting below 10:1 so I had an especially bad stock map I think...

it's worth it just to smooth the throttle out alone I reckon.

Re: Anyone install PC3r on stock bike?

Sounds to me like you will benefit a lot form a good map

My 929 had a real bad map too - it was below 10.1 in most of the rev range - adding the hindle alone, with no mapping got it up to 136 odd rear wheel hp.

It'll smooth things out a bit on a stock bike, but don't bother with the PCIIIr, just get the PCIII.

I got a great deal on the PCIIIr and that was the only reason I opted for the "r". That said it's capabilities are there if I ever choose to use them(doubtful).

I loaded the map and the throttle is silky smooth now. No more ugh ugh hesitation between 2-3k

I came here to chew bubble gum and to kick some ass...and I'm all out of bubble gum.
