preachin to the choir man.....
Not about preach'in...about helping people understand bikes.
I'm happy for those that have found the powerpro to work for them.
But there is no denying that it lacks the flexibility of the PCV that is often needed on short pipes.
Comments like these kinda remind me of those stuck on the HD cool-aid. Too blind to see the reality of the situation. Show me a dozen or so guys running the power pro on really short pipes like the Mortons or LAC along with data that the system is keeping the motor in safe AFR parameters and I'm happy to change my tune. That's not even considering HP and Torque numbers, or the durability of the unit. I'm all for advancement but can't in good conscious let a guy be led into what might be a nightmare of a unit for his pipes (like the last cobra and vh units were) by folks just trying to spread the cool aid without showing any substantial knowledge of tuning because they simply plugged in a magic box and hoped it was the best thing for their bike. I'm not trying to be an A$$ or anything but what factual information has been provided here on the benefits of the power pro....not much other than "it works for me, " or "so-and-so's bike rips".
Also I'm not even saying that the best thing in the world is the PCV. Hell, learning to use the autotune properly can be maddening (why I wrote a how-to). The best thing would be if Yamaha gave us a programmable ECU and the software to do it. Then we wouldn't have to shell out $300-500 for a fuel management system. If I was in charge of Mama Yamaha I'd be selling a unlocked ECU's on bikes and include the software, then use that as an advertising piece for their bikes. Cut the aftermarket right out of the equation. I'd sure it wouldn't cost Yamaha barely anything since they already have open units and the software to program them.
