Yes i expect they would be on the cautious side. Ecu is stock so im sure its far from perfect as it is with a decatIf your ECU is stock you would be looking to add fuel in the lean areas of the power curve. You could try a generic map and see how it feels, I remember looking at a few and they seemed a little rich, probably to error on the side of caution and stay away from lean condition.
Don't agree...I've found the maps on the Dynojet site generally quite poor.Find a map from dynojet that is similar to your modification and you will be fine. Like mentioned above, it will more than likely run rich. A custom tune would be the way to go if you can afford it though. Just make sure you find a good tuner in your area.
I never said they were good maps, but if in a pinch, you can get by with them. I did on my gsxr600 for 3 years before getting it custom tuned. I will say this though, every bike I own here on out will be custom tuned right away.Find a map from dynojet that is similar to your modification and you will be fine.

Especially at small throttle openings.
If you really want to stick to a PC5 rather than an ECU tune, then I suggest you get it dyno mapped.
Still won't be as good as an ECU tune, but depends what you want.
If they really said that then that's crappy advice IMO.When i asked mss they said they can flash ecu but they reccommend a pc5
I have previously blocked the smog plates. The backfire is only since fitting the pc5 so its definately the pc5 causing it.You need to install smog block off plates on the valve cover. Or at least plug the air inlet line to that system. That mod will stop the backfire on decel.
I prefer PC5 (or bazazz) for tuning custom maps. As a tuner, I get a simplified speedy way to adjust the fuel AND timing maps (buy the right model) in real time while I dyno. ECU flashing is much more time consuming as the bike must be turned off and the tuner must wait while the computer slowly re-writes the entire ECU of the bike. Im talking huge amounts of time wasted making small adjustments. So anybody that does much dyno work is going to prefer tuning with a PC5 or Bazazz over the ECU method.
HOWEVER, you still need the ECU flash done once! You must reflash the ECU at least once in order to remove the factory restrictions mentioned earlier. So, for max HP and easy tuning, Get the ECU flashed, then install a PC5 and have it mapped on the dyno. Auto-tune is a great feature of the PC5 if you add that option.
