Does anyone have any experience or advice on the Cobra Fi2000 Powr Pro, the write up sounds great almost to good to be true. I need to add fuel management as I have put Hard Krome 2 into 1 exhaust on and a K&N Filter Kit. Just need some help in getting the best one for my 2007 VTX1800T.

i have roughly 1000 miles since installing the unit. So far so good. Runs great. Have an appointment for a Dyno next month. Going to put 02 sensors on dyno as well. I'll give a full report of the results.

The PowrPro unit is worth the money, IMHO. runs very smooth and really does seem like a different bike. Even my friend noticed it sounded different when it first started. Not quite the pop as it idled but rather a smoother almost deeper sound. It was a good sign. Put 100 miles on it yesterday all in the mountains. 5k-9k, sharp curves, fast straight sections (110 mph worth) ect. Got it a good workout. I know power was positively affected. I will fill her back up today to check mpg. Don't care really but am curious.

It got me grinning again like the first time I ever rode the bike. I admit I am bias considering the money but there is a difference. Now I just get to ride, change out components at will and know its running as it good as it can all the time!

A new add-on for this amazing device:


Yorba Linda, CA - Cobra announces the next big step in electronic controls for motorcycles - and it's as close as your smart phone! Used in conjunction with the award-winning Fi2000 PowrPro fuel-injection module, the new OmniPro App brings advanced features like traction control, theft protection, onboard diagnostics, weather forecasting, and super-economy fuel settings to Harley-Davidsons and Metric cruisers.

Taking full advantage of modern mobile devices' advanced GPS features and tie-ins with online weather-forecasting services, OmniPro recognizes if a bike is being ridden on curvy terrain or in inclement weather, automatically and seamlessly triggering softer throttle response. If a rider is away from the motorcycle, OmniPro sends a text message warning of the approaching weather front and suggesting the appropriate riding gear.

"NASA fired John Glenn into low-earth orbit with less computing power than most of us carry in our purses or pants pockets," said Cobra Special Project Division's computer whiz Simon Router. The recent graduate of the prestigious University of Wossamotta explained, "With the OmniPro App and our Fi2000 system riders can benefit from that sophistication to make riding easier and safer. No longer is traction control the domain of high-end, high-performance sport bikes; now any motorcycle has access to this kind of advanced technology."

In constant development for the past two years and with literally hundreds of thousands of miles in beta testing behind it, OmniPro has a myriad of other advanced features, one in particular that makes it right for today's skyrocketing gasoline prices. Access SuperEco mode and the app recognizes when a bike is in top gear and at constant speed on level ground, cueing a far leaner fuel-air mixture that can significantly increase fuel mileage.

"In standard mode, Fi2000 monitors fuel delivery about 80 times every second," said Router. "In SuperEco setting that jumps to 500 times per second. Results vary, of course, but at a constant 65 mph, we're seeing an average bump in miles per gallon of about 35%. With gas approaching $5 per gallon, that's like knocking $1 off the pump price, meaning that OmniPro could easily pay for itself on one long ride."

OmniPro has the potential to do even more with optional plug-ins. By fitting Cobra's accessory air-valve transponders, owners can quickly check tire-pressure readings with a simple scan of their cell phone. A rider can also determine fuel level, including distance to Reserve. If needed, the most direct route to the closest filling station is displayed on screen. Likewise oil level is given, as well as mileage until the next scheduled service and locations of nearby authorized dealerships. In SysCheck mode, the motorcycle's onboard diagnostics hardware is accessed, identifying any potential problem areas via a schematic display of the bike. If all systems check out, the bike can then be remotely started from as far as 50 yards away simply by pressing Start Motor on the OmniPro App's display screen. Advanced theft protection can be built into the system. Linked to crime-reporting sites, OmniPro alerts the rider if the bike is being parked in a high-theft area, and suggests safer locations. Additionally, once started, if the owner's cell phone is more than 1.5 feet away from the bike, shifting from neutral automatically triggers OmniPro to shut the engine off, sound the horn, flash the lights, call the police and emit a locator beacon signal that can be tracked by law enforcement.

"The OmniPro app ushers in a new kind of motorcycling experience," said Router. "Riders will be even more involved and engaged in their riding and their motorcycle than before. It's the future made available today."

Priced at $99.95, Cobra's OmniPro will be available in app stores starting April 1.

You ain't gonna believe this!!!

It was an April Fools joke. I just called Cobra. Even their customer service agent was taken by it....until he saw the date that "release" was released.

Not kidding guys and gals. It was and continues to be spread around all kinds of forums. Just search it yourself.

I guess I just saved $100 :)

The hoax was reference the OmniPro, not the PowrPro. I hope you didn't think that's what it was about.

I have the PowrPro so that's a real thing.

Put one on last saturday didn't have a long run home about 50 miles but it was a smoother ride home. More power on the twist or the wrist. I had a Power Commander old two pot on my 02S took that one off it may have had a bad map or whatever. With a Pro it felt like an new ride altogether. My ride has these mods Pro Hyper Charger, K&N filter and 3 " Hard Chrome exhaust with quite baffles installed. Will post more as I ride it but so far just a great add:eek:
