Kit ECU questions

I found a great deal locally for the following however I have a question before pulling the trigger

Kit ECU
Kit Harness
Power Commander 5
Quickshifter

This is all coming off a race bike being parted out. My only concern however is with the extra 750 rpm will this kill my engine? The package really is a screaming deal and will simplify my wiring and give me a quickshifter, however I'm not looking for major engine mods. It DOES NOT come with the tuning cable as well so being in North Virginia (Manassas area) will there be any place to get it tuned for a reasonable amount of money?

Thank you in advance,

Mike

I should also mention this is on a strictly track only bike, not trying to take this to the street (obvious with the harness just thought I'd clear that up)

im pretty sure you can adjust the limiter.

and, with the kit ECU, you shuldnt need the pc. thats redundant.

Without the cable however is it still possible to adjust the limiter? I don't really want to shell out another $600 for the cable.

Yeah it's redundant however it's the entire setup off of another bike so unless I get it tuned it would be an easy plug and play setup.

no, you wouldnt be able to adjust anything.

sell the PCV, and buy a cable.

and, if you find a tuner that has the cable, you're set. and still wont need the pcv...
on the other hand, without the cable/tuner, the kit ecu is crap.

↑↑↑↑This!

Sell the PC (and quickshifter if it's the dynojet model - get an Anitori instead, worth it) and have the bike properly tuned at a dyno. Otherwise, pointless... you can adjust the rev limiter and play with a bunch of other settings and etc but if you don't have the ECU tuned to your bike/engine it makes no sense to buy it in the first place.

If you need the cable anyway, there's a guy on zx10r.net that sells a generic version of it for much less... just look him up.

This generic cable, I remember seeing it before but wasn't it for an older 1st gen zx10? Has it been proven that it works with an 09+ zx6r kit ecu?

Also does anybody know of a reputable tuner in the North Virginia/DC area (or 200ish miles around that area)?

Buy it and run it...

And there is various arguements for running the add on fueler, QuickShifter, Easy Fueling changes, Autotune, availability of tuners.

If you have the money to pay a Tuner the KIT ECU by itself can truly make that power where a PCV or bazzaz cant (it won't be a 2 hour tune like the other systems)..
But with the base kit ecu tune, adjusted rev limit, ignition timing alone you will be gainging power over someone who does not have the same options.

I am a KIT ECU with a piggyback PCIII (sson to be bazzaz Z-fi/tc/qs) user.
