Did you also do a sprocket change while you were at it?

no it shouldn't make a difference, make sure your going to the same RPM's though as in hitting the rev limiter :-)

Did you buy the PCIII used? If so, there might be a crap map in it. Did you have the bike tuned? Did you get a new back tire?

Squids should be outlawed!!

I agree with the others... without a sprocket or tire change, you shouldn't have any trouble hitting 100 in first. Are there any side effects - bogging, lack of power, etc?

I'm going to assume before the PC is when you hit 100 and now after its install you lost performance? Maybe your install wasn't good, ie bad connections, power, ground, and any hoses or wires you may have had to deal with for the install. I know 1st gen 10R's ram air tubes have to be carefully re-installed in the frame ports so as not to be obstructed. Not seating the airbox on the injector velocity stacks can sometimes happen if your not careful. The map or lack of correct mapping could have hurt power. Nice vintage pic for the avatar
