The Power Commander Auto Tune unit is an add-on for the Power Commander V fuel and timing controller for motorcycles. The Power Commander V allows you to make adjustments to your bike's fuel injection and engine timing settings without having to take it to the shop. Adding the Auto Tuner allows the Power Commander V to make adjustments on the fly as you ride, based on the configuration you set up in the Power Commander V's software.
