2007 R6 Power Commander

I have a 2007 R6 with I believe the only mechanical upgrade being a Leovince exhaust on it. Pretty sure just a slip on but I am about 90% mechanically retarded so not sure lol. Bought it used like this. Anyway the question is would it be worth buying a power commander and what benifits would that give me.
Forgive me if there is a thread else where I have seen some similiar things but nothing really answered my question. It does make a popping sound when I let off the throttle.

Re: 2007 R6 Power Commander

Do you have a large box under your bike right in front of the slip on?

If so, then no you don't need a PCV.

If it has a header or mid pipe (just tubes under there) then yes you need a PCV. Don't get a PCIII either, get the PCV.

Read my FAQ or at least the cliff notes

Re: 2007 R6 Power Commander

Power commander or ECM flash that was tuned for your exhaust should smooth things out for you and give you more power. If you have a modified header, I'm surprised you haven't noticed any dead spots yet.

Re: 2007 R6 Power Commander

I have noticed some jumps in power but the power is fairly consistent. This being my first Sportbike everything is new so it's hard to tell what's normal or not lol.

You said to get the PCV rather than PCIII. I've been told that the PC is bike specific and they don't make one for an 07. That being said what PC would I purchase than?

Any R6 pcv (like the 08+ ones) fits the 06/07 perfectly fine

Right around 15mph it I hold it steady she tends to jerk like I'm opening and closing the throttle. Any ideas?

That's how a bike without a tune reacts. There is a small chance it could be something else, but without the bike being tuned properly for the exhaust you will have weird quirks like that.
