Default Bully or Power Commander??? Help me decide!!!

OK I have been reading and reading till I cant read anymore!! So I am asking for opinions, no flaming!! I have a 2007 C50 with the Mortons Violators and K&N on the way. I noticed when I put the pipes on right away that I lost a little power which was expected. So now that I need to get something for the fuel what should I get? I have seen good things from both the power commander and the Bully, but I would like to hear from you guys and tell me which one your running and what you think! Most importantly is there a noticeable differance in actully getting one? I am going to order one today so let me know!! Thanks!!

A bump 'cause I want to know too! Who has installed which? Has anyone used more than 1 and can compare? At $200 + per, it's too expensive to test them individually.

There will be a noticeable difference with either one.

I like my Power Commanders. I have 3 on different bikes.

I bought the Bully mainly because it came with the K&N air kit. It was easy to install, easy to set and seems to work nicely. No experience with the Power Commander.

Install was a snap! Plugged right in ran the wires and went for a ride! Much much better! better throttle response, and I can tell there is more power there. Very happy with the purchase!!

Where do you get the K&N/ Bully kit from?

Just the K & N filter, or a kit like Gman industries?

I've used both....I started out with the Power Commander and initially really liked it alot...The PC is a very deep and tweakable unit and you pretty much have to hook your laptop up to it if you want to make very precise adjustments...The PC3 also allows you to lean one cylinder or richen one cylinder so both cylinders burn the same mixtures...One cylinder usually burns leaner on our bikes..

I've been using the Bully on my bike since its inception and it's great..Very easy to install,bike runs great,Gary has been wonderful giving me the early initial scoop on how to set it up...I was very instrumental on this forum when this unit came out and have probably been one of the earliest ones to use this processor and alot of guys would pm me and ask questions about it...When we rode in the mountains,it was really nice just to push a button on the fly and adjust the fuel mixture....The Bully is small enough and mine is still mounted on the triple tree...It has given me 0 problems and mine is staying on the bike..Anytime I feel like I want to try a subtle adjustment,the Bully is right there in front of me to make a very quick adjustment..

I Like the PC3 also,but it had to be mounted under the seat....I used to spend too much time trying different maps and making small adjustments to it,so it took some of the riding pleasure away....With the Bully,you pretty much set it and forget it..
