hello if you have a power commander fitted to your 700xx, know the instructions say it just lays under the seat. but as anyone managed to locate it in the air box housing ? as i am just about to order one and would like to put it in there to protect it from water ect.

cheers gary

it can also be mounted to the handle bars if you wanted to have full access for on the fly adjustments

Where have you read the PC is water proof? The only reason to mount it on the bars would be to try and look cool while fubaring your map on the fly. I wouldn't recommend for anyone to try and tune a PC on the fly much less without a dyno

I wouldn't install it on the handlebars, take a chance getting in a wreck but don't see why we can not adjusted on the fly, I used to replace jets on the trail depending on the altitude. Understand that I wouldn't try to adjust it while riding but you could stop and adjust then take off.

Yep, they are short. I just have mine resting under the seat, but with Spring around the corner and all the mud I will be looking to find a small protective box for it.

I thought someone on here mounted theirs under seat, but inside a plastic box they got from Radio shack? That may be a cheap solution??

I specifically asked them this and they said it was. Circuit board wrapped in silicone. I'm working right now but I'm pretty sure that I have it in an email.

The PCs may be water proof but theres always problems with gettin crudd in the connector slots.

That why questioned if they were waterproof. It's nice they silicone the boards though.

why does the powercommander site list PCV for the 2009 only? Also the PCV do you need a map or does it automatically dial in the correct A/F ratio with an o2 sensor?

sweet.. do both have an o2?I thought the PCV was the go to because of this option.

To me, o2 is the best way to go.. Add any mod and it will automatically adjust.

Agree?
