    09 programmer functionability

    First off vibration will not have any effect on the reliability of a powercommander which is the only difference that well be seen between a dirtbike and sportbike. We had PC3s on atv for quite a few years and not had any problems. Of course if there is physical damage to the unit there no telling what might happen. It is a electrical component and like all electronics they can fail. The return rate is far less then 1% on Power commanders. I have seen quite few Power commanders in my day and if you have any questions you can email me. mshefler@dynojet.com

    Flex fuel CRF450?

    When tuned properly a motor will make a little more power running E85. The downside to running E85 is that you will get quite lower mpg. Stochimetric on E85 is 9.7 to 1 where as pump gas is 14.7 to 1. You would need to run about an AFR of 9.0 to 1 to achieve maximum power. Where as on pump gas you run an afr of about 13.0 to 13.4 to achieve maximum power. Methanol uses an AFR range of usually around 5.5 to 1. You will definitely have to upgrade you injectors in order to deliver that amount of fuel. You will also have to get a fuel controller like a Powercommander in order to get it tuned. . Here is site to help determine what size of an injector you would need. http://www.rceng.com/technical.aspx

    The units are completely sealed in a potting material already. As long as the USB port plug is put in place they are waterproof. I don't know where you get your info but the units are not fragile at all. There are no moving parts inside a Powercommander and they are sealed. Powercommander 5 will retail for $359.95. With online retailers will usually sell them around the $280 price range.

    i buy a big bottle on contact cement at wally world for the same price as a small little tube of grip glue. works the same to me. spray paint works good too.
