"Why?" is the first question.

Does it not add horsepower?

The short answer is no.

The PowerCommander allows you to adjust the fuel mixture to possibly get more horsepower. Either because the bike runs lean from the factory (not likely with your year bike) or because modifications are drastic enough to require a fueling change. (Aftermarket exhaust, compression change, etc)

When I picked up my stock, with a Yoshi slip on, K6 750 at a race shop that had a dyno I was given a run sheet. I asked the mechanic if the bike would benefit from adding a PC and he pointed to the dyno sheet and afm #s and said "Why?"
