They are always priced VERY competively. There's nothing wrong with that PCIII.

I don't see anything wrong with it but if you don't mind buying used, you can get some good deals on them on the wera boards also. I got mine for $125 shipped. http://forums.13x.com

Yeah...support your local bike shop so they don't close I don't care whether it's me, Ken, Turn 1, Lithium, etc.

Let me ask you this.....is it worth it to talk to a reputable shop that will give you GOOD ADVICE and save you TONS of money in the long run if you deal with them even though it may cost a few bucks more?????

Prime example.....call an internet retailer up that gives stuff away and ask them about suspension or exhausts on what to buy, why, service, etc..... I can tell you what works and what doesn't because we have tested the bulk of them. If I don't know I know who to call....like Chuck Graves personally if I've got a question....that's the value of supporting you locals whoever that may be.

We sell Powercommanders for $270.

I'm sorry but this gets me a little fired up when I can save a guy $500-$5,000 in a 10 minute conversation and customers will sell you out to save $5.

Just my rant for the day That's why motorcycle businesses keep closing.

If I sat in my underwear everyday from home with my "Internet Store" with no shop overhead....I too could sell a $1,200 pipe for $40 over cost.

And selling them at that price.....I'm giving them away.

However, guys that buy them from me get a discount on a Dynotune!!!

For those that are asking....yes we can still make your bike perform better after downloading a map off the internet 99.5 percent of the time with a Dynotune.

I forgot to add.....and have everybody drop ship the parts for them so they don't have to spend the additional time of packaging it up and shipping.

Thanks for listening...I feel better now

Comments?? I certainly killed this threat.

Hey thanks for posting this. I'm new to this forum and didn't know your place existed.
I've been looking for a good local shop ever since I started riding and would love to check your store out. What r your business hours?

If you ask anyone who's had their bike worked on by Kevin and Safety First Racing I'm sure they can vouch for him.

Local dealer support is awesome. Guys like Kevin and the other local shops are always more than helpful when you have questions. Kevin, Ken at CP, and others have gone out of their way to help and or explain things to me. Sure maybe it's a little more, but I think what you can't pay for is the knowledge they can offer you. He's explained some intricacies of suspension to me which was awesome....but I still am slow! LOL

Why the heck am I posting when Daytona 200 is on??? FAK LOL

If you're looking to buy a powercommander I'd buy the 5 over the III. You'll have the option to throw on the autotune.

But dynojet says the V works only on 2009 and newer... You got to be careful if it works.... ask Kevin, he probably knows...

Fuel Moto offers a retro fit model PCV for 07 GSXRs .

Also, any PCIII map can be imported into the PCV with the latest software from DynoJet.

FWIW, I bought the PC III and plan on having it tuned by Safety First with the cash I saved between the prices of the PC III & PC V. I don't know enough about the auto tune and feel more comfortable having someone with the experience doing it for me.

You don't need to run an autotune setup with a PCV it will work the same as the PCIII without the autotune connected.

The whole purpose of autotune is so you don't need to have your bike tuned on a dyno to get the air/fuel ratio setup (or know how to). It reads the O2 and has a set target fuel ratio it "auto tunes" for you. But, I will say if you are looking for every ounce of power you are better off getting the machine on a dyno to have it tweeked.

As far as price goes, the PCV can be purchased for the just about same prices that the PCIII are being sold for.

Let me clarify my previous statement. I think that the autotune will work fine for a generic tune, and better than the generic maps listed on their website. I got a great deal on a used PCIII that isn't really possible with a PC V yet. Overall, it is cheaper for me to get the PC III with a custom tune than the PC V with the auto tune.
