Stupid PC-III/TRE question...

Hello all.

I've heard the TRE tossed around and know what it does. My question is, can the PC-III do the same thing to the fuel maps and timing that the TRE does? The reason I ask this is because if I'm gonna do something, I wanna do it right instead of "bootleggin it" with a cheap alternative. I'm not looking for serious power gains or even power gains at all as the Gixxer 1K has plenty enough power for me. What I want is smooth and controlled power in 1st and 2nd gears mainly. There are peaks and drops in the power in these two gears and the TRE is designed to eliminate that by accessing the smoothest built in timing map which is found in fifth gear. The reason I don't go with the TRE mainly is because now that I have a gear indicator window, I actually use it and don't wanna look down and see '5' all the time.

Anyway, I turned a short question into a really drawn out one. oh, well.

sounds to me like what you what is a smooth torque curve...in that case you want the PCIII. the tre is just going to give you more up front power by killing the rev retard.

go the PCIII route

Get a switched smart TRE, you can turn it off when you are street riding and use your gear indicator and when you are aggressive switch it on because you shouldn't even be looking at your instrumentation when you are hitting it hard.

A smooth torque curve is excactly what I want. I'm used to the dips and jerks of power in 1st and 2nd gears but I would like them to be smooth all the way up.

I don't have the phat wad of cash for a PC-III just yet but at least I know what to save for! Where's the best place to find one of them thar thangs? Does it come with pre programmed maps for different makes and junk or do I have to get one that's make specific?

Oh, and thanks!

I got my at http://www.tntperformancedyno.com in nashville for 250 but they have a web site where you can buy them....which is how I got mine.

And yes they have pre programmed maps that you can download in to them. it comes with a cd-rom with maps and the PC computer program to use. the PCIII USB does anyway. that would be they way to go.
