which programmer is best?

I have a 2010 rancher 420 and was considering getting a programmer to help with it running lean since I have a snorkel and exhaust. It has been backfiring a lot and heard that a power commander 5 would be best. Does neone have a pc5 or any other programmer that they wld like to comment about to help me make a decision?

I think I commented on your other thread but yes if your looking to stop the backfiring buy a power Commander. From what i've heard they work pretty good and help even out the ratio.

The PC5 is probably the best, but not the most necessary. Since you have the HMF exhaust, I recommend the HMF Optimizer. The Optimizer comes pre-installed to run the HMF exhaust, and you can add fuel to it with the limited settings. The PC5 is more expensive, and more tuneable, and also limited to what can be done to the Rancher, so kind of unnecessary.

Hey guys. Bought this ATV from a buddy down in Edmonton. Works great, just had all the fluids changed, ready for the short summer I have here. This is my set up:

How can I tell if its running ok? It has lots of power compared to my old 300 fourtrax (which I loved more than life). What am I looking for on the spark plug? Seems to run fine.
