    And will it work with my mac? Bonus if they offer a military (retired) discount.

    I see lots of people using them, but I'm not sure where to get one.

    Only good place would be FuelMoto and if they cant get you what you want go to Dynojet. IN that order. FuelMoto is a contributing Vendor and they back everything up with superior customer service.

    1. No (not yet)
    2. None that I am aware of.

    Fuelmoto is the best place as then you can get tunes from them and download from Dynojet. The tunes do about the same for my 111 bike from either place. I do not think FM has Scout tunes yet.

    And I didnt see the military thing. I didnt ask but I did after I bought mine from FM and They gave me a price reduction. It was free shipping after I had already done the deal, but still they did give a military break. So ask

    Might it work on an inexpensive windows or Android tab?
    To pass one up because of that, is IMHO, very unfortunate..

    You can always borrow a computer, all you need it to do is download and save the needed files to the PVCX. Hmm, wonder why you could not do that with a Mac...

    I wonder if it would work on a chrome tablet.

    This is the first purchase that I feel over my head about. I have put it off for a year as I don't fully understand what I'm doing and don't want to make the wrong choice. I understand what it does, it is remapping the computer on the bike. I don't really understand how to do it. And that makes me nervous.

    But I really need to just do it. I have decided to go with George Hartzell's intake. But I need a fuel manager. I'd rather go with quality over simplicity, but I'm nervous.

    Maybe this is the man above telling you that 'enough is enough'. Now suppose you got this fuel controller and the speed and performance cause an accident. Or worse. None of us here could sleep for years on end. When is enough ...........enough? This is like an addiction. Just say NO.

    LOL..........use a friends computer.

    Just give Fuelmoto a call, they are good poeple.

    They have a great customer service ethic. I had Jamie call me back one night at 7pm to help me get a problem corrected (it was user error) and stayed on the phone until my flash was complete and the bike was started.

    Will probably not work on ChromeOS. If you get the PVCX (the only one to really buy today), I'm sure you could use someone's Windows computer. Once you flash the ECM, you detach the PVCX and put it away.

    Although asking a friend to use their computer seems like the logical answer my husband just retired from the military. I don't really know anyone here yet.

    Metro-Milw Indian installed mine. It didn't take long and it is working excellent. Perhaps your Indian dealership can do this for you?

    Dealership, coworker, friend, or even a PC at the library if they aren't too locked down (they might be).

    I asked Brian at FuelMoto if I could use my MacBook Air to load the two files they send you and he said yes it would work. My Windows 10 PC had the hard drive die right after I loaded the files to my PVCX. I haven't tried it yet but since I've flashed my ECU already I'll see if it works showing the files. It does but you have to get Finder to display hidden files to see them.

    Simple answer to your question.

    Call Jamie at Fuel Moto.

    I do not understand why some find it very hard to make a simple phone call and enjoy the personal touch........:cool:
