I was looking up fuel mgmnt devices and wanted something simple. I was about to order the standard Fi2000r when I came across Cobras newest device, the FI2000 powrPro.
After doing research on what little info there is about this, I decided to risk the money and pay nearly double the price for this one as for the 2000r. It is suppose to be continuously monitoring and adjusting at the rate of 80 times per second. I wanted something that I would not have to adjust no matter what parts I was putting on the bike.
The problem arose when I was unable to find the right part number for the Stateline... there were 17 models. Jpcycles.com had them but had no idea which one went to what bike.
The Cobra web site didn't have the info, nor did anyone else I could find. As it turned out, Cobra didn't send out the applications with their product to anyone (or so I was told).
I called Jpcycles and after they researched it, they found one supplier who had received the specs. The powrPro won't be available until the end of the month (or so), so I will have to wait and see if it really works but I like the idea that it always self adjusts and I won't have to worry about trying to make adjustments for elevation, new parts etc. This one is not California legal, which means it will perform a little better :>)
The part number for the Stateline is ZZ26825, but again, I can not account for the accuracy of this yet since I haven't received it. It's $540.00 at Jpcycle.
I'll install the PowrPro and a Chrome Cobra air cleaner ($224.00 at Jpcycle) at the same time... I'm trying to stay patient..lol

yeah, I saw that new one at the motorcycle superstore website. Pretty expensive though. I have the I2000R and from what I understand once it's adjusted you don't have to change it. If I ever have to replace my 2000R I might look into the newer one.

how often do you ride that the elevation changes enough to deem it feesable? and if you do ride in such an area now do you have problems with it just being stock? these are the question i would have to ask myself before i spent that kinda jack? not trying to put your product down or anything like that,to each his/her own, i havent had a a problem with my cobra prducts "knock on wood: yet...

Another guy and I had a discussion on this product for my bike. If you don't have a o2 sensor on your bike their is no way it can scan your air fuel ratio. They do offer a auto tune option to add to it for an extra 200 plus. With it you are adding a o2 sensor and I can see it working like they say with it. But with out it I just don't see it happening.

The auto tuner from Cobra does not use out the pipe gases to make adjustments. Supposedly that's old technology and an inaccurate way to do it as well as does not make as many variable adjustments per second. It would take a half page to explain why and I would be just repeating someone else.
Can you tell I have drunk the coolaid? Seriously it almost sounds too good to be true but I have one in the shop waiting on one more part to come in before installing it. I have read just about every thread on it in 4 different forums and those that actually have it and have been using it think it's the greatest thing out. Personally I think beer is better but the cost is only $475 and if you spend money on a dyno for a $250 tuner you just paid more. I'm not rich but it's like arguing over using regular or mid grade in you scooter.
