newby ecu question

HI I have recently purchased a 08 910s.
I know this a subject that has been pretty heavily discussed on the forum but any advice would be appreciated. I have had a pc 111 powercommander fitted and dyno-ed by someone who knows what they are doing. While the pc has improved horsepower and torque across the rev range the one thing it fails to fix is the low speed snatchy-ness. It is better but I'd like it to be improved. Now I have read that many members have mentioned that this is mainly due to timing. I am not particularly mechanically minded and so, much of the technical info goes over my head. My question (yes I have finally got to it) is will the microtec alleviate this problem as it is only aspect I dislike about the bike? Secondly (not knowing the product) does the microtec replace any need for the power commander or does it just replace the stock ecu? Are there any resources out there where I can get more information about the microtec (their site didn't have that much information)

I did the same thing when I got mine only to find out the PC3 does nothing below 6000RPM. A forum search will reveal all but what it boils down to is xbikes ecu is the only way to go.

I chose to master the throttle instead. It can be done.

MV Ultra Take the ride!

Thanks guys
Have ridden it a bit more and although its still not great down low particularly round town, I'm getting used to it and in mountains its a whole different story. My word awesome. I'm going to live with it a bit more and adapt to it but thanks for the advice

microtec replaces the original ECU and PC etc. It will provide full adjustability of timing, fuel and much more. Xbikes do a microtec that is plug and play with a map, as long as your bike is currently running the later ECU (Marelli 5SM) which i think it should do being an 08.
