Having (or not having) an O2 sensor has nothing to do with this. A TFI seems to go for around $210, a PCIII $260. A downloaded "closest" map in a PCIII will give you a bike that runs better than the best you can tune a TFI. You can get the PCIII pre-programmed for your app., just install the PCIII. If the thought of installing a PCIII scares you beacause you don't want to ever mess with downloading a different map or you don't have a clue about EFI mapping or you don't mind having sooty rich areas you can't tune out, get a TFI. A lot of forum member deal with the magical mystical PCIII just fine and have better/nicer running, cooler running bike as a result.I think the PC III is a bit steep price wise for a bike with no O2 sensor, but it works well enough. I am not into computers much, and so don't own a lap top, or a note book. Getting my bike close enough to this old desk top isn't going to happen.
YOu can get a cable to take your PCIII off and hook a 9 volt battery to it and then hook it to your desktop to prevent having to get a 50' usb cable.Most any make newer bike will be over lean due to EPA spec. A PC III, TFI, or Cobra can all be a nice add on, if you don't do anyother add ons at all.
If you run with after markeket air and exhaust, these become must have items.
I am a Nomad guy, having owned an 01 and now a 06. I run the TFI on the 06 as i did on the 01.
I run more or less the cadman, just on one side, a sort of mix with the coyotte set up, and V&H baggers. With the TFI I can run 87 octane which i do all the time and I have no ping, and far better preformance than stock, and get better MPG's too boot... A win win if you ask me.

Do they even make USB cable 50 feet+ long?
