We have EU R1's in Australia and plenty of people use Power Commanders. I would think if you can use a Power Commander, you can use a Bazzaz - they do the same thing.
I'm thinking about getting a Bazzaz myself. The only reason I would pick the Bazzaz over the Power Commander is that it modifies the signals to all 8 injectors, where as the Power Commander only does the primary 4 injectors. However this probably make next to no difference for a street bike. But they are about the same price, so i figure i might as well get more functionality with the Bazzaz.
From what I understand, the principal of these units is to intercept the ECU's injector pulse, modify it, then send it on to the injector. This allows you to increase or reduce the amount of fuel being injected at any point in time.
Both manufacturers offer generic maps you can download, but because every motor is different, you may want to get it dyno tuned as well.
If you've just got slip-ons you don't need an aftermarket fuel management system. I would only bother if you've gotten rid of the catalytic converter.
What do you mean by 'runs properly'. Does your bike not 'run properly' now?
