Been seeing Power Commanders for sale for the V-Strom. What would this device do for me? There's one on Ebay now for $100.00.

Well depends really what bike you own... Apparently, as I understand it helps the 1000 overcome FI issues that some may or may not experience. For the 650, I would have to say it does squat...

Mine's a Wee. No advantage?

Depends.

The wee is pretty close to being mapped correctly. So for a wee, you won't get much benefit, but could get some at the expense of fuel mileage.

Most Vees are mapped too lean. On a vee the PC will let you tune the EFI better and make the bike run correctly, like a wee does out of the box.

All a Power Commander is doing is allowing you to modify the fuel/air settings contained in the computers internal map. Basically it is telling the injectors to open longer or shorter.
