Cobra Fi2000R PowerPro Tuner ??

Is there anyone that has experience with the Cobra Fi2000R PowerPro Tuner.
I just bought a new 2011 Raider and love it.
I've noticed that most owners have some sort of fuel controller installed.
If you have used the Cobra Fi2000R PowerPro Tuner how do you like it? Other than the price this controller sounds like a great product for someone who wants better performance without having to mess with dynos or mapping ..... I like the idea that you install it and it does all the thinking and adjusting.
Let me know what you think ...... I want to get one but would like real world reviews.
Thanks

Cobra Power Pro

I have an 09 Raider and have had the Power Pro on it since it came out on the market. Well worth the money. It will not add tons of hp but it really help with performance.

Thanks SwampStar for the reply ... I was starting to give up hope that there was anyone here.
Is your bike stock other than the PowerPro.
When you say it helps with performance how do you mean?
Better acceleration, run cooler, better throttle response??

My dealer tells me that I don't need one until I mod the airbox or change the exhaust. I don't want to spend the money now if I won't notice a difference until I change other things.

Thanks

I'm also interested in hearing about this. I just have a slip on on mine but exhaust popping drives me nuts. I'm thinking this might help? Scares the crap out of my old lady sometimes when it sounds like I dropped an M-80 behind the bike. Haven't tried the CO Mod yet either, but I like the idea of the programmer if it works like it should.

I have the V&H 2into1 exhaust the Patrick Racing intake and the Cobra Power Pro. Great combo. The answer is yes to all of the above much better throttle response, runs cooler & much better acceleration. I never had a big problem with the popping but the little bit that I had is gone. The only popping is when I run about 85 and let off quickly.
Cobra Power Pro was worth the money to me.

So far I'm happy with my PowerPro, matched with my FP exhaust. I do get a little decel popping or sometimes between shifts but it's not bad enough to bother me. Great throttle response, power delivery is good all the way through the range and pulls really hard up top. Haven't had it dyno'ed yet though.

You should be checking for leaks in the exhaust if you're getting too much popping. A fuel tuner can help but if you've got oxygen meeting super hot air then you're going to get a pop.

I replaced the exhaust gaskets, siliconed the slipon, and added a PC-V. Popping is better but still there sometimes between 1st and 2nd and once in a while on decel. And pops every time if I rev it in neutral above 2500 rpm. Guess its just the nature of the beast, but it can be embarrassing when it's real loud.

I am going to agree with the guys above that have the PowerPro...you can't beat it and it is worth every penny!! I have an '08 Raider with Freedom Performance pipes and Baron's air kit and installed the Cobra PowerPro...Truth is, you don't need the PowerPro if you aren't changing your Air in and/or Air out...I do highly recommend to do it right if you're going to spend money...1) the PowerPro is definitely worth the price! You don't have to mess with MAPS - a true plug and go system...2) If you do mods (exhaust, intake ) do them together...A/M Exhaust only works it's best if you open up the air getting in and getting more air in only works if you open up the exhaust...stock systems tend to be more restrictive...when I did my mods, I noticed a definite performance increase and my mileage got better too. You won't regret it

I love mine. Just put it on last week along with a V&H 2-1 and it has helped keep things cheap (no retune/dyno cost) and it seems to have upped the mileage and it is alot cooler running. Down here in Florida the cooler running part is a big bonus, otherwise you fry at the red lights.
