PC3 Not a usb ,, power commander

Worth getting? Does it use the same maps everybody talks about?

jalm, I've got the same thing in my '02 - previous owner had it installed on a stock bike.
I was glad to not have to spring for one when I bought my Yoshi's.

You might want to get a USB to Serial adapter cable to connect to your computer, I think I probably spent about $15 on one.

When you go to the website for tutorials, http://www.powercommander.com/powerc...downloads.aspx make sure to click on the "PC IIIr" tab.
Otherwise, the interface in the tutorials doesn't match up to the software that comes with that particular unit.

I have one on my bike, and it works fine. However, I did have some trouble using my laptop with only USB ports. I bought a USB to serial port converter and those things are always sketchy even with the correct driver. After repeated attempts I decided to just use my work laptop with a serial port on it. It works beautifully.

I entered '04 919, and there are no PCIIIr maps, unless I'm looking at it wrong.

ETA: I see there's a map for a "completely stock bike." Does the PC improve the performance of a stock 919? Maybe bump the timing? (As you can tell, I've never used or even informed myself about Power Commanders)

Yes: the Powercommander on a stock 919 creates a nice improvement in throttle response...probably no increase in horsepower.
