Power commander on otherwise stock bike.

Hi All

Due to some very strict noise regulations at my local track (see below) I'm going to stick with stock exhaust system, is it worth adding a power commander?

Quote:
Lakeside Raceway Additional Terms and Conditions

1. Noise restrictions do apply: ADR compliant standard exhaust systems only. No aftermarket exhaust pipes/mufflers or cans. All trackworthy bikes with ADR compliant exhausts will be accepted.
2. No engine noise until 9am in the morning.
* If the Council official deems your bike too noisy, no refunds/transfers can be given. The measure is 95dB trackside anywhere around the circuit.

For track use, I am not sure if it is worth the money on a stock bike, normally the revs should be high enough, but in my opinion, the throttle response is better and the power delivery more smooth specially with low RPM.

btw.I would think that if your aftermarket system is not extremely loud it would clear 95dB trackside, but if only stock is allowed there is nothing to do about it.

Thinking about it some more I may get some slipons and PC and just put the stock system and PC map back on the night before going to the track.

I need to be running the stock exhaust to be allowed on the local race track so my plan now is to get slipons and PC, get a map made for that setup then when I'm going to the track I'll swap back to the standard power commander map and put the standard mufflers back on.

Radiator scoops and carbon airbox etc will have to wait as I'm out of cash.

I'd love to but the rules are very strict, the track has only recently reopened after about 10 years.

The other track I can go to Queensland Raceway has none of the above conditions but its really quiet boring compared to lakeside.

Added the PC3 friday night, went for a ride today - definite improvement on/off throttle and smoother, Bike runs abit hotter though. Next some slipons and maybe a shock.
