Registering takes a second. It's free and you'll probably like the site anyways.
It's the forum of a well known english bike mag.

Anyways here's the review:





Took my '06 Blade for a custom map today.

Had a Blueflame slip-on fitted for about a week and a half. PCIII was ordered but hadn't arrived by the time I fitted the can so I rode around with everything else standard. Not a pleasant experience of course without a Power Commander compensating for the fall-out.

PCIII arrives. Easy enough to fit. O2 eliminator also fitted. YOU MUST FIT THIS TOO (Not all Power Commander dealers tell you this). Otherwise the Lambda sensor will undo everything that's subsequently done.

Big improvement with the PCIII but seemed to be running rich and stuttering out of the lights too. Sounded a lot better though...

Booked her in for a set-up at Banjax in Central London. Good, helpful, friendly advice and a 2 hour turn-around.

The bike?

****ing revelation!!

She was running rich. And losing 13bhp because of it. From the first pull away from the lights I could feel that it was now sorted. No stuttering, no bouncy feeling where it's not sure what to do next and of course no flat spots. It pulls like a ****ing train even in top.

So, anyone in the London area that thinks the map that came with their PCIII is good enough, get your bike down to Banjax and get it sorted properly. Can't recommend them enough. They're in the back of the PB Classifieds incidently.

And, of course, to anyone that hasn't had a custom map done. Do it. You won't regret it for a second.

I went over to the dyno shop my co worker recomended and talked to the guy. he said 275 for a full tune. he also told me I should get a new air filter, spark plugs, and O2 eliminator before hand.

with a full system you need a PC3. I just won a PC3 usb off ebay for 203.00 shipped.

I'll get the bike tuned this or next weekend

Yep. Prop the tank up (make sure it's not full) and remove the lid of the airbox with a long phillips screwdriver.

The difference will astound you. Recently done it and recommend it.
Actually, it's impossible to tune it without a PC :-)
As for the filters, stick with OEM but I would recommend new ones before dyno tuning.

Do you mean it feels slower now that you've installed an aftermarket muffler?
What usually happens is you lose midrange and gain some topend so it may feel "slower" in the midrange.
I've never seen a 929 cat but I wouldn't expect any significant difference in flow. They're not usually very restrictive.

Your numbers are realistic.
The PC _might_ net you slightly more peak power but how often do you ride around 11000rpm?
The PC is more for smoothing the power curve to improve drivability.
he's 100% correct, i installed a slip-on on my bike and a few other slight mods, and i didn't need the PCIII, now if you go with a full exhaust, and other real serious mods, the PCIII is a must.
