Yes and no...

You can get a used PCIII that was set up for an GenII FJR - it will work fine. Dynojet just replaced them with new units - the PCV. The AT module will only work with a PCV.

The ECU has maps specifically to adjust for temperature, pressure, altitude, and humidity - you don't need an AT to compensate for those changes. Running without an Autotune will mostly work fine. You will probably end up with the mixture being slightly off when you go from E10 or E15 back to real gas without an AT.

An AT is useful for mapping for the specific changes made to your bike. I have an AT and the bike runs a bit smoother than just running the "smoothness" map. The AT doesn't seem to work well below 3k rpm and 10% throttle on my bike, however. It richens everything up and then leans it down again, leading to inconsistent running. If I was doing it again, I'd save the money on the AT.
