Does it matter what order I get these in? Right now I have the money for the power commander but NOT the full exhaust..

If I should get the Power Commander now, which one should I get for my bike? There are a few to choose from and I have NO experience with power commanders..

PS - Bike is an '05 GSX-R 750..

Personally I think a Power Commander would be unnecesary on a stock bike. But most likely, if you put a full exhaust on your bike you're going to want to put a Power Commander on it.

so then i should do the exhaust and power commander at the same time? how much of a difference does the power commander actually make? I have never been on a bike with one so I have no idea what to expect...

It made a big difference on every bike I've owned that I put a power commander and a custom map on. It really smoothed out the throttle response and the dips in the horsepower curve.

It was after an aftermarket exhaust was installed.

If you wait untill you can afford a little more,i can hook you up with a few sites that sell them as a package and you will get a better deal that way.You must first decide on a pipe though,and a slip on is a waste of money in my book to only pick up 2 or 3 HP even with the PCIII.

I like it. The only thing is it isn't shaped exactly the same as the stock one. You have to put the fasteners in one at a time and keep them kinda loose. Don't tighten them as you install them or the last couple of holes won't line up. Once its on though it looks and fits fine.

Like Racer said. trackday(s) + Suspension setup. Proper working suspension for your weight and riding style is the mod that will make you faster than any of the latest gizmos. :cheers

+1, no mod that you put on your bike will make you faster then going on a trackday and learning how to ride your bike.....then after you learn how to ride it, thats when you put mods on it....Not vise-versa.......but if you just into sounding good....get a slip on.....or hell get a slip on, and use the rest of the money for a track day.
