you can pick up a Power commander 5 or you can do the bazzaz unit. I use bazzaz now and I like it, no isuses. I dont use the MJS mid pipe but it seems to be a very popular choice in the R6 community.

considering you don't know what kind of "power commander" would be best for your bike I would recommend nothing that would make a really fast bike faster.

If you're at the point where you can ride it 100% to its ability I would recommend bazzaz because they control all 8 injectors out of the box vs PCV that requires a SFM to achieve the same feat.

I'm pretty sure if you have to come onto a forum and ask "what kind of power commander do you recommend?", then there are probably some other issues that need attention before he goes slapping a fuel controller on his bike he obviously knows nothing about and kills himself.

And then there's the y-pipe question. For 's sake it's a metal pipe, they're all the same

I just think Schooley is being nice and looking out for the little newbie fella.

99% of the people on this forum can't ride their bikes to their full capabilities. Doesn't mean he can't mod it. Why don't you just go ahead and tell him to trade it in for a ninja 250

Get whichever you want. Between the bazazz and the power commander, they essentially do the same thing and both are good quality.

Does a power commander control fuel?

It's a joke. I know a power commander is a fuel controller

I know you knew, lol. I was REALLY close to whipping out the LMGTFY.com link but I figured that would be taking it too far.

You realize Power commander has a variety of products, right?

PCFC, PCV, Autotune....etc.

I also don't see how riding ability dictates the need for a proper air/fuel ratio.

You need a PCV to add anything else to it. The new fuel controller they have is a simple stand alone and don't work with their quickshifter, autotune, etc.

Why not trade in the r6 for something with the proper amount of power?

We are talking about a slip on with a mid pipe correct? Pretty sure he's still gonna have the cat in the headers and if that's the case I'm sure the AFR won't be off enough to justify a $220 PCV
