The last few bikes I've owned I installed a Power Commander when I did the Stage One upgrade (slipons, and airbox). The last bike gave me nothing but trouble with the Power Commander. The very first thing my indy mechanic (ex-HD mechanic with 30 years experience) said was "get that fr**kin Power Commander OFF your bike!!"

Anyway, with my new SuperGlide I went with V&H slipons, SE air cleaner, and this time I just did the simple dealer download. I have to say, my bike runs great with this setup. But, all I hear from everybody is how I need a "tuner" and the download is a waste of money. What are your thoughts on the dealer download/remap for a simple Stage One upgrade? As I said, my bike runs GREAT with it, whereas my bikes with the Power Commanders ran like c**p, spitting, backfiring, popping, etc. Anyone running the simple download and are happy with it?
