Power Commander, VFC, or?
I just bought a 2004 Kingpin with stage 1 exhaust, filter, and vented airbox. I assume it has a download because I couldn't find any type of controller mounted anywhere.
The bike runs and sounds great, with just a hint of pop on decel. I wouldn't be disappointed with more power either.
I was thinking of installing a Power Commander or VFC for a few reasons. First, I just like to tinker with stuff. Second, in my experience, external controllers do a better job than dealer downloads. The best way is to flash the ECU with a custom map, but that's not possible with a Victory as far as I know.
So, what would you do? I've never used Power Commander. How good of a job could I do tuning it without a dyno session? What about the VFC?
