    If its already flashes, why you would mess with the tune?  Power commanders and their auto tuners are wayyyyyy out of date. Getting your ecu flashed by a tuner will make your bike run way better then using power commanders auto tuner.

    As long as you dont change anything, it wont change after a flash. If the person flashes your ecu and sets the afr to, lets say 12.5, it wont change unless you change parts after that or a drastic climate/region change. Installing the auto tuner will change overwrite whatever the flash did. I mean its your bike but its a complete waste of money and in most cases, only harms your bike and makes it run like sh#t.

    im sure some one on the forum has already done this with good results.

    the main reason is to smooth the on off throttle at low rpm due to the uk emissions.

    top end running / power is crazy as we know with a flashed ecu.

    A proper flash will do that, not a power commander. Thats mainly due to the decel fuel cut, which the power commander cant do.

    Useless it gonna work right on 45% , plus copy and paste with all tables is a PITA, get a Woolich kit instead.
    A turbo: exhaust gasses go into the turbocharger and spin it, witchcraft happens and you go faster.

    yes wanted to go the woolich route but they currently dont support my ECU part number.

    i did the same set up with my gen 2 ktm 1290 sdr and got good results.
