watch out for power commanders

I Have An 04 Ten And All The Sudden It Lost 25 Mph On Top End. The Culprit = Power Commander Usb. Taken Off Bike And Now Runs Normal. Worked Well For Many Miles But I Also Have A Freind That Had To Have His Entire Wiring Harness Replaced, Again Power Commander. Be Warned, I Hate It When My Bike Is Down. I Am Sure You Do, Too.

power commander is really good about replacemnt on them though so jsut give their tech line a call or get with who ever you bought it from (local shop) and they could probably help you.....we get them in all the time from R1's CBR's ZX's and GSXR's some just dont hold up but most of the time they will replace them or fix them and get you back on the road in no time.

The main reason they go bad.... vibration, I know alot of people mount them with just the 2 sided tape and that is terrible for the ic chips. Mine is mounted on a piece of foam with 2 sided tape on the mount side and velcro on the commander side. Cross fingers none of my friends have had one go bad since installing this way. Also make sure it is not touching n e thing, this causes bad vibrations also.
