Yup, do a search on here, you will find tons of info - and somewhat of a raging debate between the FI2000 and the Power Commander V. I've still been debating myself!
The FI2000 Power Pro (watch those model numbers!) continuously adjusts based upon monitoring injector information, but retains no information on shutting down. It takes it a couple of blocks worth of driving for it to rebuild its information for maximum performance. Advantage: you can change whatever (pipes, fuel, whatever), whenever, and it will adjust to it.
The PCV requires a map that matches your bike, and you can tweak the map to your heart's content! Ideally, you will get a map from a tuner that knows what the heck they are doing with the bike on a dyno! A bad map will make the bike run like crap. Oh, the PCV with ignition is the preferred model.
Both can cure the afterfiring that you are hearing. While plug-in tuners with maps are nothing new, the debate comes from if a product can provide a very similar gain by only monitoring the FI pulse. Personally, I read of too many users that are thrilled with the Cobra units to discount its effectiveness. I think it comes down to a matter of if you want plug-n-ride or you like to tinker! Oh, I am no expert, just an old grunt trying to figure this thing out myself! YMMV!
