The early model RT's are the bikes the engineer intended it to be. Right before the guy's in manufacturing made all the little changes for ease of building them.

Truth

when leaving for work at 0600, my wife couldn't be more insistent on the Buell with a drummer exhaust being pushed to the end of the block before being started, or simply starting the BMW at ANY time and leaving from in front of the apartment with NO issues from her or any neighbor.

GREAT SHIRT!

Booster Plug???

So, who has used a "Booster Plug on their R1200RT? Id not even heard of one till today. Ive not had any trouble with surging but will this improve the performance or gas mileage?

Who has had any experience?

New RT in the stable

Just picked up a leftover '12 RT last week. Great bike so far. Ok, carry on.

Hi Budman,
I installed a booster plug this summer. Zip tied the temp sensor at the front of the frame. Slightly better partial throttle control, slightly less vibes, and mileage improved from 4.5 to 4.1 l/100km. From my experiences, I'd recommend it. It's made the bike smoother.

I just installed one, but not the BP, opted for the Accelerator Plug less expensive and does the same trick.
Slow going seems to no longer be an issue. Pretty smooth throughout the RPM. '05 RT with K&N and full Lazer exhaust.

I had bascially the same experience with the Booster Plug. I notice it particularly at idle to 1/4 throttle.

Thanks. I got the tri-color (beige magnesium whale skin, or some other such nonsense) - it's like sliver and tan and brown. I got pretty much everything on it except for TPS and ASC.
