I have had both, while the powercommander is easier to mount, the DFI is easier to use,
no need for a computer and less expensive. OR you can just take it in or locate a Yosh box and dial it in and be done with it.

Riding since 1973

I'm thinking Dobeck....

Called local dealers - they say they do not do yosh/teka?/etc. programming

Any Stromers near Youngstown,Oh with a programmer?

I think Rousch Powersports in Medina has a Yosh box. I have a TFI and it works great!

I'm ordering a pc 3 for my 650 tomorrow to see if it complements my full leovince and k&n. I have some accel/decel pops every now and then. Some would say I'm throwing my money away. What about the cool mapping experiment factor?

Amen. . ordered mine today also. I have a dyno at work though so tuning is something easily done.

Rousch DOES have a Yosh box. If you make an appointment, they will do it while you wait. There is only one guy there that does it. He is AWESOME!!! I believe they now schedual 1 hour for remap and testing. Current shop rates are around $70 per hour.
After I did the exaust mod on the bike, it had a the lean stumble again. 1 trip to Rousch and the bike is SMOOOOOTH. Still get good milage as well. I don't work for them, but I have no problem recommending them.
