Up-Grade I want to do

I am going to keep my 2000 GSXR750 and just make it faster. One of the first items I am looking at doing is a K&N Power Commander. I already have K&N air filter, Full Yosh Stainless exhaust. A few more mods but nothing that helps towards it going faster.

Has anyone used or is using one and what do you think of it? I am going to do it over the winter season and have it all done by the time riding season comes around. Also looking to have stage kit 3 put on as well. :)

I figure it will be cheaper then trading it in for a new 1000 and save me a lot of money.

You'll want to get a custom map to get the most out of the Power Commander. An off-the-shelf map will work OK, but a custom map will be much better.

do explain please..thanks :)
Basically, the powercommander adjusts how much fuel is delivered based on rpm and throttle position. They offer maps you can download that were created on similar bikes with similar options.

However, every bike is different...even two bikes of the same model with the same mods will not have identical fuel requirements. To make the powercommander perfect for your bike, you need to have it tuned to your bike. This is done by creating a custom map based on your bike's fuel requirements at each rpm/throttle position setting.

Hey Larry!! Can you do a custom Map???
I could if I had a dyno...

I am moving into my new shop November 1st and I am hoping to have a dyno next year, we'll see how it goes.

I was told by the Kawasaki mechanics that bolt ons.. ie Exhaust, Filter, modified airbox and PC3 will NOT void warranty.. only ENGINE work.. such as cams or bore and stroke....good to know it gives ya a solid 12-20 extra HP u cna push out iwth facotry warranty
If they can prove that a failure was directly related to a non-stock item, I guarantee that it will not be covered under your warranty even if it is a bolt-on part. However, you are correct that it will not automatically void your warranty, nothing can completely void your warranty (except perhaps an insurance total-loss that is rebuilt). In fact, even cams will not void your warranty unless you have a cam-related failure (ie - it won't affect a warranty claim on an electrical component).
