Everything that you do to a motorcycle they recommend that you disconnect the battery. I am looking through the install manual of my power commander and in no place does it tell you to disconnect the battery. Has anyone else installed their power commander? if so, are you supposed to disconnect it? This is wierd.

I always thought it was just to be safe so you didn't short something out by accident while working on it.

I installed it tonight and guess what, there is no possible way for this thing to go in without taking the battery out! All done and loaded. Pretty easy stuff. I got a chance to hear my new Bigshots staggered and holy poopers, it souns great. I will try to post some pics tonight. i would take it for a ride but it is a cool 6 degrees with snow outside here in Milwaukee.
Thanks for the help.

It is an aftermarket device used on fuel injected bikes. It plugs into the stock electronic control module (ECM) and allows adjustments to be made to fuel and ignition maps. You can use maps downloaded from the powercommander site and fine tune with a laptop computer, or adjust it with the controls on the unit or the most accurate way is to have a custom map done on a dynojet 250 dyno.
