I did a search and found nothing........ Just a little explanation would be good. I see it in alot of posts and people talkin about it.

I would like to put some more mods on my bike but dont know what to do next.


It came with a stage 2 jet kit,aftermaket chain and sprokets (same size as stock though want to go up a few teeth in back and down 1 in front) K&N filter and I have put on a TwoBrothers Racing C-4 slip on.

Any advice would be great.........and Please refrain from flaming, some of us only know how to ride the things not make them better or fix them when they are broke.

PCIII or Power Commander 3 is a box to tune the fuel injection. It's like putting a jet kit on a carburated bike.

I'd look at either your saddle or your suspension next.

Corbin or Sargent make great saddles for the F3 (I've ridden both, and while they are different, both are very good).

For an F3 on the street, I would recommend a FOX shock -- they are more affordable than either Penske or Ohlins by far, and are, at least for street apps, just as good. If you do the rear, take your forks to someone who can do racetech work -- that way, the suspension will be balanced. Depending on where you live, there may also be one of the handful of well-known suspension specialty shops in your area, which usually have pretty competitive pricing.

Doing anything more to the engine at this stage, probably including a full system, is not worth it -- you'll save a little weight with the system, but everything will be very expensive and cost you gas mileage and engine life.

Thank you guys very much for your advice.

Sounds like ArizonaMotorsports. Take it to a dealer that isn't owned by these bozos.

Do you have any other service options? It means that that mechanic is too stupid to open a can of beans, and your business is best brought elsewhere.

Ask them if they can spell their own names. Then ask if they're the firstgeneration of their family to walk upright. Doofus's
