Also how much performance gain can I expect from it, if m running on stock exhaust ??? (And K&N air filter)
Also Ill be needing only the PC, right ???
Or do I need to buy auto tune or some other device ???
In general it won't work on a different model bike. In particular, the PC's that fit a CBR250R would not work on any multi cylinder bike, even if from Honda.
A PCV for a CBR250R has but a single pair of wires and connectors for the Injector fuel pulse modification. A multi cylinder bike typically requires an injector per cylinder or more, and therefore the PCV CBR250R does not have the ability to attach to each injector, since it provides connection to but a single injector.
It could work on a single cylinder with a new map, and possibly a firmware update, (batch injectors, etc).
Gain 1 - 2 HP, but more important, improved throttle response. This is true for basically all the aftermarket fuel controllers.
The Jettuning PCV (only power commander option I think) allows ignition advance modification, but does not ship with any ignition advance maps loaded or included, only an appropriate fuel map. Therefore to take advantage of the ignition option would require a trip to an experienced dyno tuneup shop, and the cost thereof.
