NO, DEFINITELY DO NOT GET THE PCIII. I had one and someone hacked into it via wireless internet, messed up my air / fuel ratio, and caused my engine to explode. The USB model, which I had, is even more prone to being hacked. Your best bet is to look into a DELL commander with flatscreen monitor, or, if you must have the Power Commander model, get that shit with a strong Norton Anti-Virus program and the 1337 Firewall. Your best bet is to get nothing at all and reprogram your bike's current computer with a Paul Walker (fast / furious compatible) cell phone and then utilize the bike's checkdisk function to make sure your computer is well. If it is not in good working order, press 4 and start the bike in safe mode. Hope this helps,

ive got a PC3 USB for my k4 750 with 2 bros bolt on. It smooths out the powerband and eases up the abrupt throttle response for my bike. Not sure what it will do for your bike, but I think its worth a try.

Yeah, common n00b mistake - you "think" the bike is alright when in fact it's infested with spyware


I'd recommend Spybot or Adaware, a good firewall like Sygate's and a proper anti-virus program, I prefer Norton. It will make your bike a bit slower but you can fix that by adding RAM

For the Cost of a powercommander, you can get real power....I recommend a P4 3.2GHZ, A nice tower case, duel DVD Burners(so you can burn porn while you ride), 4 gigs of ram, etc, etc. Make sure you get some bungees and duct tape to keep that fucker secure on the tail section while youre doing your low speed 12's.....

Wait for the pc3R-B --- that's so you could Bluetooth the power curve on the fly.

Look out for viruses when out in the open, or maybe just install Norton and SpyBot on your bike's PC...

dont forget to hook-up a router while ur at it....

... later on you could go wireless, but then again you already got bluetooth, so that would be pretty stupid.

I did this mod to my SRAD a while back, worked a treat but caused wicked weaving on the motorways over about 100mph.....

it can be hacked?
of course.
Although SkyNet make a Power Commander alternative, and thats got greater defenses and has 'AI' built in - genious. They do three models, T-800, T-1000 and T-X.
Made by the same people that make compuiter chips for nearly every household appliance....... Must count for something....
