When you installed a full exhaust, custom map and PCIII...

Did you get noticably more power? Did you start pulling on bikes that you normally didnt? Or do you feel like you wasted your money?

Can a mod fix teh title to read..full exhaust, pcII THEN Custom map?

I dont know about all 3. But I will say that there is noticeable difference between a stock Ninja 250 and one with full exhaust and a jet kit.

After installing the parts, I was pulling on Busas all day long!

On My r1 there was a low spot around 7-8000 RPMS where the power band dipped.. now after the exhaust, power commander and custom map its great and pulls nice throughout the rpm range.. Now a couple more cheap things people should look at would be a nice air filter (BMC,K&N etc. etc) And some velocity stacks if yours arent adjustable.. just another little bit to make your bike breath easier.. Exhaust has been and always will be one of the first mods I will do to a motorcycle.

Thanks yellowjacket...I should clarify that this is more track/race oriented with 600's vs other 600's. Or 600/750's. If I had my litre bike on the track I wouldn't be having thi convo. A litre bike has entirely too much power for me already.

i actually just put a full exhaust and i have a pc3...ive done alot of reading and the only thing that can be really adjusted on ur pc3 is fuel curves...meaning that you will have proper fuel ratios throughout the whole powerband. Now as far as all the HP one would gain i dont really kno but to my understanding your bike will just run safer

. This is why I sold the PCIII I bought, never even installed it. Liter bikes have plenty of power...for me at least. My money is going into suspension and tires

Maybe consider sprocket change?!?!

I'm -1 +3. I think that's ok for TWS (Texas World Speedway) which is where I am looking for improvements. I can catch people in the infield, exit turn 15 within inches of them..and can't motor them on the front stratight. I'm on a 750 they r on 600. I am also 100lbs heavier than most.

Well broham, dont get mad at me but maybe you should lose some of the gut?!?!?! That will shave some time off!!! GL man. I wish I had some helpful advice. If you have the money, I'm sure it would make the bike run better/ faster.

FLUFFY!!! I LOVE IT Just dont go callin yourself a fluffer now!!!


I've been on other forums where people swear by PCIII, custom tune and full exhaust. I'm sure others will chime in who have done so and noticed significant gains.

drop one tooth in the rear... that will make you -1, +2... you wont be safraficing as much of your top end that way but still have decent accelleration. the main benefitis that you'll be able to ride each gear alittle more as you get out of the infield.


just guessing

it's my impression that the most important reason for a pcIII on the track is a more linear power band.......you will see decent gains with filter/stacks/full exhaust and a custom map though
