It depends on how bad the surging and how much it bothers you.
Mine bothered me as most of my riding is commuting on back roads, in
the "undesirable" RPM range.  I tried every trick in the book, 0=0,
very careful valve adjustments, careful TB sync and nothing worked.
Pulling the CCP seemed to help, but dropped my mileage 5-8 MPG.

I installed a 259 15 months ago.  It has eliminated the surging.  It
has dropped my mileage ~ 5 MPG, but I'll accept that in lieu of the
alternative.  The installation and setup was very simple (in contrast
to what Mr Hadden suggested).  It was plug-n-play and it was already
setup from the factory.  I played with the "surging" setting a bit,
but I'm pretty close to the factory setting.  

It has worked great for me.  YMMV.  It was certainly easier and less
costly than dual-plugging the heads, which is another recommended
