Stock 919 and PCIII

I'm new here and am hoping to be getting a 919 in the very near future (next week). I've seen mention of using the PCIII numerous times when changing out the exhaust and air filter, but I was wondering if there is any benefit to using it on a stock bike. Once I get my bike, I don't plan on doing any major modifications for at least a while, but if mapping the computer with the PCIII would be of any benefit, I might be able to convince myself to do that.

Thanks in advance.

it seems that the actual power increase is fairly small, but i've been playing with my PCIII and it can smooth out the powerband quite a bit. another nice thing is that you can map it to get stellar mileage at your cruise speed if you are handy with your laptop. but the most important thing about a niner is not the accessories, it's the riding

i have a new set of slip ons, pair block off plates, flapper mod and no pc3. I have heard to many negatives about the pc3 to go with it. I guess if i had an extra $300 sitting around I would do it.

fyi...the stock air filter flows more air than the bike could ever use. granted unless you go forced induction, but that is a one off item.

some people get it to help aide in the "exhaust stink" but i don't notice it. But i guess i have just gotten use to it. I think many of the newer 919's that came with the catalytic converters report no issues with the smell.
