As per the owner's manual the "plug" enables the enduro pro mode and also allows that owner's personnal suspension settings ( soft, normal and hard ) be saved and loaded instead of pre sets.

No other function is mentioned.

I will definitely keep that option in mind. THanks

I sent powerlet an email and their reply was

Anthony,

We will be releasing ours at the end of this month. It will be a higher
output and is about 2/3 the size to the one you linked to.

Cheers!

At almost 10k my clutch action has improved slightly. It used to be difficult to modulate when launching the bike from rpm's just above idle. A bit grabby at the beginning of the friction zone.

Now it has become much better...almost like the clutch has bedded in properly.

Congrats!! Looks like Trans Am won the sale, too. Good experience? I never hear anything bad about them...

Surge?
Anyone else have the dreaded surging on their new GSW? You know, at about 45 mph, when you're just barely on the gas? Mine does. I'm hardly surprised. Every boxer I've ever owned has done it. The answer has always been to add a booster plug, or accelerator module. Looks like I will be doing the same to this bike.

Did you see tjAtwood's post above about the enduro plug?

Interesting. Mine has the Enduro plug installed. I think that these bikes just run very lean. The ethanol in our gas makes it even worse. My 2012 RT camhead did the same thing.

I never noticed it on mine before, but when it was in the dealer having new tyres on Saturday, they put the new software update on, and there's definitely no surge now.

Can you tell us (or find out) anything about the software update?

Next time I speak to them, I'll ask, but I can't notice any differences yet.
