questions about power commanders

I have a yoshi rs 5 slip on and have been thinking about getting a power commander. I have an 05 RR and was wondering if it is worth the money and if I will see any drastic gains. I have heard conflicting pros and cons about pcs and not sure what to do....

yoshi no good???

whats wrong with my yoshi? From what I have heard is that it is one of the better slip ons out there. Are you suggesting that I get a full system to the header or just a different slip on? I know that it is not going to be cheap but Im trying to keep the cost down as much as possible. Will the pc not be any good with my yoshi?

the yosh is good if your not going to race. there are just systems that give you a little more power. like arata but if your just going to be riding on the street your fine. i have a jardine with my pc and it works great. plus the way that i figured it you cant go wrong with what the factory guys use on there race bikes

I got a PCIII for my RC51 before I even got the exhaust. You can get rid of "flat" spots in the HP curve. If you have ever seen a dyno chart, it will look like a nice gradual curve. Now if you see a couple of dips and flatspots, that will get taken care of with a PC. Check out this dyno sheet. The red is stock, it moves up and down. The blue line is more straight, which is what you are trying to do.
Get your PCIII and get it tuned by someone with a dyno, and you won't regret it.

Just give it to me, I'll use it and you can go spend some more money. Sound good?

Keep the slip on. Get the PC and have it tuned. You will love it. One day if you can afford a full system, get it. In some cases, like my old RC51, the slip on is better than a full system, HP wise. Probably not in the 600RR's case.

Then you've heard wrong. Great if you are on a budget, other thanthat, plenty of other pipes way better for h.p and in fit and finish. BUT in saying that, you have it now, so why ditch it? Just get the pc and haveit custom mapped. It'll make more of an improvement to your bike that the pipe did. Hope this helps.
