The PCIIIr (which I have) has the capability of tweaking the ignition timing.
That was the main difference between prior units (PCII and PCIII).
While nice for race teams, it's overkill for the casual rider or one who doesn't have the resources to monitor the engine during testing.
The engines are at a high state of tune already, and it doesn't take much to cause a overheating, pre-ignition, or detonation state if advanced too much.
Be very careful if you decide to play with the timing.
The PCIIIUSB is modular in design and has various add-on modules for more functions.
Like ignition timing, quick-shifter, etc. They even have a hub for everything to plug into.
Another slight advantage it has over the older units is that it samples the engine every 250 RPM vs. 500 RPM of the older units. On paper it allows more fueling accuracy.
If you plan on trying to optimize your tune then yes get the 3usb if not then don't mess with it. The tuning capabilities of the 3 are far better then the 2. Usb is better an easier then serial. You can tune at 250rpm increments instead of 500. There is the accelerator pump feature among others. Also you can tune each cylinder and run the bike on two different maps.
And waldo just so you know the ignition feature on the 3r has no effect on our bikes. Its pretty much pointless. Thats why you can convert 3r maps to the usb format. I'm running a 3r map right now from thorsten with my 3usb. If there was any sort of ignition adjustments nobody would be running 3r maps on their usb's cause they could potentialy destroy their bikes. So if you haven't gotten that 3r yet good. Get the usb instead.
So grew up in a family of riders, my brother spent a fair amount of time racing when he wasn't flying f-16's for the Airforce. Many years and motorcycles later, and I've had an SP-2 fall in my lap for free. Now this is the bike my brother raced back in the day so you can imagine my...
I have used the search function but most info is from years ago and technology and products have changed.
Is anyone using or has fitted a plug and play gear change indicator to these bikes? Any feedback appreciated.
(Not an essential mod, but I ride Fireblades also and find these V-twins have...
I went on to power commander website, downloaded the application so I can interchange maps on my PC3. I bought my RC with a PC already installed, with no idea what PO had installed. Anyways I am not able to DL any maps. I go to click on the file and it directs me to select PC3 or...
I removed the tail, installed a pig-tail for a battery tender, and replaced the stock rear pegs with Sato Ti hangers.
I also Stomp-Gripped the tank...The generic sport bike Stomp-Grip cut is cheaper than the custom-cut ones, and if you install the R side upside down on the L side of the tank...
