Hey Guys,


I have been living with this problem like a bad tooth, for over ten years..... And bought a new battery almost every year....

It was the power commander..... (Old model) finally in frustration
I pulled it off, hooked everything back up, and two weeks later.....
Still starts like a raped ape!

WaaaaH-Hooo! This has been a really annoying problem.....

My only complaint..... Is my '04's acceleration is kinda Ho-Hum without the P.C...... Noticeably so.... Kinda feels like I'm dragging a cinder block!

Before I shell out $300+ bucks on the new model Power Commander..... Has anyone had any issues with them, particularly draining the battery? While the bike is not as much fun to ride now....
(My riding style... I never used to hit the throttle stop... Now I do!), having it not kill the battery..... Is well worth the trade off!!!!

Thanks so much for all the help!!!
