Just want to know the feel on Power Commanders, I am thinking of get one but not sure if it's needed or what the benefit of one would be.
So a couple of question
1. Why get one.
2. What are the benefits of one.
3. Do you have one.
4. Are they just a gimmick.
I have the performance filter already but your right about the Lloyds Cams ( Next on the shopping list ).
I didn't go out of my way to try a be a know it all when i got the PC5 looked at, but i wasn't happy with the way the bike was performing and the extra fuel usage based on highway travel.
When i bought my 300C i put a tune from the states in to it before i turned it in to a cammed out beast and i noticed a lot of positive things ( Power, H/way Fuel economy, smooth excelleration etc ) but never noticed the same positives with the PC5 except power. I can't say the 300C is a Fuel economic beast now though ( lmao ) but it sure goes down the track like a cut cat.
When i took the bike to Rob @ Victory Brisbane he offered to look at it on his Dyno and as he knew i was involved with Dyno Tuning my car he allowed me to stay with him in the booth were i got to see the readings.
The one thing that i have noticed after Rob tickled the tune is that before when i was in 6th gear i kept checking to see if i was in 6th gear and now i can tell i am in 6th gear ( Take out of that what you may ).
All i can say is i am much happier now and the bike pulls hard all through the gears.
Picked up my Xcountry today after Daynon(Sydney store) fitted the power commander
