    What does a "power commander" do?

    Greetings everyone. I've heard lots of talk about "power commanders", but I don't know anything about it. What exactly does it do? How does it work? I have a '04 gixxer 600 and I was wondering if I'd get any benefit from having one, but first I need to know what it is!

    remaps your air to fuel mixture and the PCIIIr can also adapt your timing. If you get an after market exhaust it is seriously suggested that get one of these as well to correct your mixture and get the most out of the nice new exhaust you just spent good money for
    If my busa is so slow in the twisties, why can't you keep up?

    What if I am just getting a slip-on pipe? Is it still necessary?

    a bolt on pipe will still effect the performance of yur bike...
    but a bolt on with a power commander is soo soo soo soo much better....
    it opens up allot more...
    on a stock gsxr 600... U can actually gain about 2 hp..... nothing but a power commander.....
    I hope this helps..

    with a slip-on it is not neccessary but even with no exhaust change at all it can improve what you have now. Especially after you take your bike in for a custom map for what you have and where you are.

    I was told by three seperate mechanics, that no matter how much the site states the bike doesn't have to be remapped (two brothers pipes) when it gets a slip on, it does. The stock suzuki pipe is mapped to the hair with the current system, and because of patenting and such, everyones pipe is a touch different. If you have ridden your bike with the stock pipe for a while you may notice a performance different, it may only be in the lower or upper RPM's, cold starting, higher pressure (humidity), whatever it may be, its there. On the flip side, I am positive people in this room have slipons that they are completely satisfied with, however thats the information that came to me when I was researching it.
