Okay, I have a '98 gsxr 750 with some engine mods, and I know its not fueled correctly. What I want to know is if the Power Commander for my bike would be exactly the same as the ones for some other Suzukis except for the map. Is the hardware the same? I can load a new map in it, I just need it to plug in correctly. Somewhere I read that all fuel injected Suzukis have the same fuel injection components, but I'm kinda skeptical of that.

Any help is appreciated.

Your bike would take Power Commander II (PCII) not PCIII or PCIIIR. You'll have to try different maps (there might be a map for your setup on the accompanying software CD or on Power Commander website) Best way to go is to put your bike on the dyno and ask them to check the air/fuel mixture as well. You can adjust PCII to remove any glitches or dips in the power curve. PCIIs are dirt cheap these days. You can buy one for under $150 delivered.

first things first here. YOUR BIKES ECU NEEDS TO BE MAPPED AT THE FACTORY SETTINGS BEFORE INSTALLING AND USING THE POWER COMMANDER. Theres no way to check this, othewr than a trip to the dealer, to have them program 0+0+0 back into it. If you dont know what its set on, take it there to get piece of mind. Then install the power commander. I like map 302.007 (without timing)...it smoothed the hell out of the fuel curve, and stopped the lurches.......

Man, I can't wait til' I upgrade my bike to FI. I like that ease or programming, etc. I will eventually be selling my carbs to put towards a pc2. hehe

I know it will help a lot, and I know you can remap it and all. But what I really need to know is if a PCII for other Suzuki made the same year will plug in the same, or if they all have different hardware.

Also, I have noticed that the PCII for the '98 GSXR 750 is getting harder and harder to find. I've seen a couple web sites where they said they were having a blow out sale, but when you try to order it from them, you are told that they are all sold out. If anyone knows where I can find one for a killer price where they are still available, I'd be most greatfull.

Try eBay but keep in mind the recent drop in their prices, don't pay anything more than $90-100 for a used one. Yes you can use a PCII from another SRAD Gixxer on your bike but update the map according to your setup before the first ride. It comes with a software that contains some instalation video clips. Insatallation is piss-easy. You'll need a serial cable to connect it to your PC (it is included with a a new part) and if you don't have a laptop, you might need a long cable or a little chip (or brain of PCII) that can be connected to the computer and later on to the PCII to load the map without fiddling with long cables. It costs about $10 but makes things much easier if you are not going to use a portable pc. They have an old-fashioned serial connector only, so prepare to buy a serial to USB convertor if you have a new generation PC like mine with no serial port but only USBs and Firewire ports.

Will a PC from a '98 TL1000 plug into a GXSR from the same year? I found a guy selling one for a TL1000.

As long as it is PCII, it will be all right. Just make sure you remap it using 0ne of the GSXR750 maps on the software CD before you go for your first ride.

I tried K&N Powersports about a week ago. They are out of stock. They've been out of stock for a while. Some jack ass over there is just too lazy to take it off thier web site.

Today I ordered a PCII specifically for a GSXR 750 from Parts Unlimited. I get parts at dealer cost. I should have just done this from the get go. Thanks for the input though, everyone.

I was one of the lucky ones to order a pcII from k&n before they ran out. I have a stock gxsr but the stock setup of the pcII smoothed the bike out considerably. I only wish there was a way to switch between two or three maps easily. It was a good 145$ spent anyway.

There is some confusion......I agree, a PCII is a PCII, but, are the connector blocks on the ecu of a TL1000, the same as the connector blocks on a GSXR? Will the PCII from a TL1000 physically connect to the ecu of a GSXR?


If they are the same, then in theory plug it in, load the right map, away you go...correct?

MonkeyBoy above had it spot on. Any PC will work as far as getting a map on it that'll suit your bike. BUT it's the connector block that comes to suit each application that differs. The same PCII will work on a GSXR750 as a Busa etc. But the ECU connectors.....

If you really want to know for sure, borrow a ECU at a breaker or somewhere and compare the connectors to yours....

Ok! Thanks guy´s. seems stupid to change a thing like the connectors, whats the point of that!?

Does anyone know if the pc II suiting -00 gsxr 750 has the same connectors as the -98 750?
I can buy a used one from a -00 for half the price of a new one..

Well according to Dynojet the 2000 and the 1998 don't have the same connectors. I want to believe them about this but you never know. So I just got the correct PC-2 for my bike.
