?? difference between PC3 & PC3 EX??

this might sound like a dumb question but what is the difference between the power commander 3 and the power commander 3 ex? they both look different but im just trying to put a power commander on my bike. Does anyone know where to get these power commanders cheap?..

The EX is DJ way of making the EPA Happy by having a module that doesn't have the buttons on the face, and can only make mild changes to the bikes fuel Mapping.
It's a political thing.

That's why they have it in Green on their site, and the Regular PC is in Red for "OFF ROAD USE ONLY"

Most everyone still purchases the Regular PCIIIusb and now PC V, since they want full adjustability of their Fuel Injection.

Back when these first came out in Jan. we had hundreds of inquires for this exact same question.

So, we posted up a HUGE Write up on this exact answer.

the best results you are going to get is with the bazzaz system, yes its more money, but when you take your bike to get a custom map, with your pc3 its going to cost more money. the bazzaz does it all for you on your laptop or desk top with a long a$$ usb cord..... my point, bazzaz all the way. dont waste your time and money with anything else!

We sell them Both.
And the Bazzaz is a great unit.

But, comparing apples to apples.. The Bazzaz does NOT.. "Do it all for you"

What he means is, you can spend another $300 for a Z-Afm Self Mapping device.
And then it will "recommend" Settings for you.
But, you still have to go into the program and make the changes.
Then go out and try it again. And then read the recommendations and go out and try again... etc..

if you are really into this stuff, it's the way to go. If you rather not mess with it, then a Dyno Tune will be less money, and give you the perfect map.

OR if you get a PC V, you can add teh Auto Tune for $219 and That unit Actually "DOES IT ALL FOR YOU" .... It makes the changes "Closed Loop" to the PC V.

Just wanted to clarify this.

Then it sounds like a PC is the way to go for you.

What year is your bike.?

PCIIIusb is your only choice if you have 2006 model.
