Looks like we are neighbors, relatively speaking.
The power commander without being dyno'ed won't damage your bike. The generic maps shipped with the PC's typically enrich the mixture to correct driveability issues. A dyno tune would configure your PC to your bike, every bike is slightly different, but the map included will work okay. My '07 has a PCIII with a stock exhaust, I've tweaked some of the maps downloaded from the forums to help preserve fuel mileage and still correct the surge and bucks.
I too have a Shinko 705 in the rear and for the money it's been great, about 4500 miles with less than half the tread gone.
