SERT vs Power commander

I called my dealer today to schedule tune and remap. They said they can tune either a SERT or Power commander, and price for both would be about the same. They recommended SERT because it does not install into bike. Bike they could install both and tune for about $800. Since i dont know anything about tuners, can someone give me some insight as to what might be better?

If it was ME...I would buy the PC5 for around 300 bucks and install it myself. It is literally as easy as plugging the system into your computer, putting the CD in and finding the closest setup to your bike. Example: I have a vance and hines pro pipe with arlen ness big sucker. select it, Plug it into your bike and ride on. Saved 400 bucks.

I called fuelmoto and they sent me a power vision. So easy a caveman can do it! And they can send you a new map if you make changes to the bike later. Worth at least a call to talk to them

Go with a PV1 I had a serpt and could never get it right. I traded mine in for a PV1 at FuelMoto and got it last Friday. Plugged it in and flashed the ECM with the supplied map. Took the bike out the next day rode 200 miles and the bike never ran better.

I like Jamie and Fuel Moto, they never steer you wrong. That said, I also like the SEPRT, simply for the fact that it uses the "brain" that comes with the bike, not a piggy-back or replacement unit. My H-D Dealer installed it, but did not leave me with a tune that I liked, so I bought the software & cables and fixed it myself. Its not so easy a caveman can do it, but, it does a fine job when used correctly.

Either way you go, you should have a good running bike. Whatever is easier for you, follow your gut, don't rely on us, who knows if we know anything about what we are talking about!

I saw in another thread that you just installed a complete Dragos True Duals system. I did too, and I also installed the ThunderMax tuner which Frank supplied.

Due to my limited experience, I can't compare the T-Max to any other tuner; but, I can say I think I'm going to be happy with it. Also, Frank has some good prices. If you haven't yet, you should at least give him a call.

Sorry if this was too far off from your original question. I know how conflicting all this information gets

Thanks everyone. I just ordered the Power Vision with overnite delivery...I want to be up and running before the weekend. They are supplying me with a map also. So my question, for those who have this...do you mount the display on your bike, or leave it off??

I have a PC5 and it is great. You can call the company (DynaJet) and speak to someone on the phone. Tell them what you have done to your bike and they will pick a map that is closest to what you have and try to get it as close as they can.
