One question springs to mind: Why? Well, that or: How many times do you have to drop a hammer on your foot before you decide it's not a good thing to do? As a wise person posted near the end of one particularly nasty flamefest, "It's a Honda! It will take whatever you dish out, so just ride the darn thing!" or words to that effect. A philosophy I ascribe to wholeheartedly. At least that's what I try to convince others. In reality, I'm just cheap! And PCIIIs aren't. Hell, plugs aren't even cheap to me, which is why I'm doing an "original plugs" longevity test: 35,671 miles and counting. And my '02 has never done anything strange, or left me stranded 60 miles outside of BFE. Or Cucamonga, which, believe it or not, does exist. You'll have to excuse me -- it's been a long day, and I feel the need to be silly. So good luck with number (oh, what is it now, 3? 4?) whatever. Just remember to double check all the splices, and dielectric grease is your friend!

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

Um.... maybe it's time for us all to pitch in to the "Buy Rob some new effing plugs " fund?

My bike has 22300 miles and I have replaces the plugs 3 times for fun. Come to think of it.. I might have a set of NGK Iridiums I put like 4-6k miles on... want those? They looked new when I put them neatly back in the boxes that the next set came in.

tires.... it's what's for dinner!

Gee, I don't know .... postage is sooooo expensive these days! Seriously, I took the #1 & 4 plugs out about 3 months ago, and they looked pretty good, so I put them back in, fired it up and took a good blast up Piuma -- still a heap of fun, and nary a hiccup. Maybe I'll stuff in new ones around 40,000 miles. And custom made megaphone exhausts, and a closed loop ECU, and Renthals of one description or another, and LED everything, and a cut down tail piece with a bobbed seat, and RC51 forks, and magnesium Marvic Piumas (just for the name), and a cbr 1000 swingarm, and plasma sprayed aluminum brake rotors all around, and carbon fiber sprinkled here and there, and ........ ARRRRRRRGH! There, I feel much better now! It's good to get that out of my system. Like I said, postage is sooooooo expensive these days!

Hell no! The cheap bastid will just squirell the money away and say he bought new plugs! I'm gonna save the money for lottery tickets.

Good luck Mikey, let me know when you want to go "test" it.

I had a PC on my RC51, no problems, but it was a PC2. My MEAN STREAK had the PC3 and it had an intermittent glitch, so I sold the bike and bought a bike that I could live with without changing exhaust and having to use a PC3. I'm glad of my desicion. The only reason my bike doesn't go faster is lack of cojones!

PC3?

Phobman,I wanted to say that too,but, since you just did,I'll say amen. How much adrenalen is a person allowed a week? I've used up alot of my budget. I don't profess to have conquered it, only found a happy median where we both get our blood flowing fast.
I love my Lil Red

I like it because it gets all the available power out of the motor.
But mostly because it really smooths out the power delivery & gets rid of the annoying abrupt on,off,throttle jerk.

Like Mike, I enjoy my PC3. My original one works perfectly. Besides doing all the stuff Mike said, it increased my fuel mileage – important when one uses the bike to commute 110 miles round trip per day (I almost never ride it on the weekends!). I found a couple of maps I really like (yes, I know they were not developed for "my" bike but they made improvements and are close enough for me). If I had to fiddle with pushing buttons to change the three rpm zones (PC2 and earlier) I wouldn't have bothered.
