    Possible Power Commander / Intake upgrade

    After some searching on here and seeing the pros and cons I am leaning towards getting a PCIII for my 2009 M50, not sure on the intake yet so feel free to voice your opinions.

    The biggest question I have and this is mainly for 09 owners is with regards to the O2 Sensor. My M50 is an 09 and does not have any O2 Sensors, I changed the exhaust from stock to V&H Straightshots and there were definitiely no sensors. I actually ordered the exhaust for an 08 because I did not need the bungs offered on 09 exhaust. Will the PC for the 09 work or will there be a difference in the wiring harness for hook up since everyone says all 09s have O2 sensors and mine does not. Or should I get one for an 08, will it connect properly? If I knew I was going to go to the PC I would have gotten 09 exhaust with the bung already there and gone PCV.

    Any advice?

    if i remember correctly you want the pc5 for an 09, i opted for the cobra powerpro more expensive but i dont have to bother remapping it ever. installation is silly easy. if you opt for the powerpro then get the one for the 09 c50 its the same part. cobrausa is just slow to fix the part listing on the website.

    02 sensors are on the Cali and non us models. but im pretty sure the connectors on the other 48 state version is the same.

    if you want to keep the shield there's the gman filter replacement. otherwise take a look around a thundermfg.com and see what style you like, most anything can fit with the right adapters. you can also mod the big shield to let more air through. personally i went with the ubiquitous hypercharger. its alot smaller than the shield so it doesnt rub my knee.

    theres also plenty of people that made their own/hacked up something to fit. and the naked mods.

    Thanks for the information after looking the powerpro sounds great. Are you running stock exhaust with your setup? I do like the Hypercharger, any issues in the rain with it? What kind of seat of the pants and mpg gains have you noticed?

    I got the Gmans stealth intake and bully controller. Both easy to instal and the Bully controller is preset so no maps required. I plan on getting my shield done by Len at Ducks Covers . Though that's closer to the bottom in the list of wants and mods for my bike.

    Your not going to increase power where it feels like a rocket, but throttle response will be much better. You will also notice you zip through the gears quicker.

    I went with a Tornado intake, I just liked the look.

    Sure can...I just used Marine Goop to glue it all together. The mesh is a $2 garbage can from the dollar store. The Anarchy sign is laser cut abs i ordered online using my design(i got off the net ) and the purple LED's are from ebay $5 for 2 of them shipped and i attached them use 3M double sided tape.

    Got the idea here http://www.volusiariders.com/47-cust...ure-heavy.html

    Not hard at all...i used a 2" hole saw for the small end and jig saw for the rest. Cleaned it up with a dremel. Hardest part was cutting the garbage can LOL!!! If you need a hand i'm sure we can meet up for a cold one

    Thanks for all the responses. It appears each will have their own opinion on what works best If I go the route of a tuner I am now leaning towards the powerpro after the ease of no maps. I am not looking for huge HP gains just want the bike to perform at it's peak with some of the modifications I have made.


    MantiZ68 looks sharp, IMO custom work with a couple cold ones is always the most rewarding.

    Easy I take your opinion like others, I respect your preferences and ask only that you respect mine. You say little to be gained, but the gains I am looking for is more along the lines with combining what I have done to the bike with what is factory to maintain reliability and longevity of my investment.

    You sure do spend a good amount of time concerning yourself with other's choices.
