Some valid points you have there I guess it matters who you ask. My buddy has a Dobeck for his 700 Raptor and loves it, he doesn't like to have to tweak it and he has no desire to adjust the ignition timing. I currently have neither but will be buying either the Power Commander or the Kawasaki ECU both are supposed to have the ability to adjust timing (the Power Commander will require an additional module) and are programmable via computer which works great for me. My laptop goes with me almost everywhere (due to work) and I am a "geek" so being able to see it and program it is a definite advantage to me. Plus the ease of returning to the "exact" config I had previously loaded is something I look forward to. I can turn a wrench and have no fear of that but I am much more in my element in front of a computer.Here is my list
* costs about $100.00 less then the power commander
* don't need a computer and cables to adjust, so can make changes anywhere at any time.
* can share your map with others simply by reading the 3 numbers from controller.
* can track changes with pencil and paper.
* have not found any.
* externally adjustable also
* $100.00 more then the Dobeck
I run the Dobeck and a buddy runs the Power commander.
I think that they do the same job but the power commander is a lot more work to tweak it.
I went out riding the other day and it was a lot hotter them it had been so I wanted to adjust mine.
I pulled a small screw driver out of my tool pouch and had it done in about 3 minutes.
My friend with the power commander only had done his with a computer in his shop so he was unable to make any changes.
I log my changes in a notepad in my tool box and I can refer back to it at any time.
Also I have shared my settings with many by simply telling them what the 3 numbers are set to.
It is kinda neat that you can hook your ATV to a computer to tweak it I just think that it is a bit overkill.[/b]
