I have one on two of my bikes. I have been a Power Commander man from way back. I still like them but after having the SE Pro Tuner I won't go back.

The only down side is if you change something on your bike you need a new dyno tune.

I've had no problems with it. The only downside, from what I've heard, but not experienced, is that Independent tuners may not be as familiar with it as they may be with Power Commander or other tuners.

I have never taken my bike to have it tuned. I ran the original canned map for almost 54K miles with no trouble. When I did get my bike on a dyno, I had great HP/Torque ratings, but my Air/Fuel ratio was a bit lean, especially in the 3800 - 5800 rpm range. I bought the required cable from Harley (about $45) and used the free software download from Harley to adjust that myself. After another 1000 miles, Seat-of-the-Pants dyno tells me it's doing better.

Since I was able to adjust by RPM/Throttle Position, I was able to fatten it up in the heavy pull range (70-100% throttle) without affecting the cruise range (20-60% throttle). Better response when needed, but doesn't affect fuel economy when cruising.

Overall, I'm happy with it.

Had one on a strong XL and loved it and thought it was easy to use. Have one on the new '16 RX, won't go back to others. When on the road life is better with the HD RT when you're having probs.

Don't fail us now, oh blessed mother of acceleration...

What are you planning on doing with it? Having it tuned on a dyno or autotune it yourself? It's an excellent tuner in the right hands. If you are wanting to have a dyno tune done you should research dyno shops in the area you are willing to travel, find a shop with a good reputation that you can trust. Then ask them what tuning device they prefer and go with that. If you are looking to autotune look at which ones have the features you prefer. TTS, Vision, SEPST all are excellent products that have the ability to be tuned on a dyno as well as have "autotune" features. I tune with everyone of them daily.

I'm not 100% sure but I don't think the non-intrusive tuner will void the warrantee. They will WANT you to use the HD tuner but I think you would be OK. I would still go with the SE if you can get a good tune done on it.
THAT BEING SAID, make sure you have all the mods done to your bike (internal and external, ie: cams, heads, mufflers, A/C, etc.) BEFORE you get the tune done. Otherwise you pissed a ton of money away.

The HD SERT is OK but it ties you to the HD dealership for tunes which cost you a lot of money in the long run.
Get a Power Vision tuner and flash tune the bike yourself, with your mods a dyno tune is a waste of good money and $300 to $500 a pop for a dyno tune it gets pretty expensive.
The Power Vision will allow you to change the tune when you do performance mods in the future and if you need or want a dyno tune most all MC techs use a Dynojet dyno and are familiar with the Power Vision which is made by Dynojet.
Also the Power Vision will offer more user friendly features than the HD SERT ever will and the cost for the Power Vision is reasonable.
I used the HD SERT and the T-max and the Power Vision tuners and the Power Vision gives you the best bang for the buck IMO.
