Got it yesterday. Thanks Rich.

Installed it yesterday afternoon. Straight forward install. It's getting packed under the cover now with Autocom, Powerlets, GPS connections. Anyway,,,,initial feel: Much smoother coming out of closed throttle. Much smoother going into closed throttle. Lost a approx. 3k rpm flat spot that sometimes materialized itself. Started her up this morning at about 32 degr. for work and initial idle seemed smoother, and maybe a little lower rpm.
So if you guys get this think, (and don't forget to take the slack out of the throttle cable,,,,,w/o increased rpm with handlebars in full left lock) you'll be pleased.

Should have done this before. Well worth the money.

That would be great.
Let me know if I can be of any help; pictures, testing etc. etc.
The "Accelerator" at Cyclops goes for 170 dollars; just a bit too steep for me; like you price better.

Very happy with mine too Ritchie! It works!

The install is ridiculously easy too.

I'll try it out at some 0* C temps tomorrow

Friend of mine just got a 990 Adv too and says the throttle is not as smooth as the F8 so it sounds like they need help too.

From a performance stand point, is there a difference between the first batch you made (which I havee), and this latest version? Is it all the same electronics but sealed better?

Laugh the changes...

good question... same exact electronics!, the circuit board is just smaller.

differences...................................
1. The switch whip is longer
2. The BMW waterproof plugs were double sealed with "rescue" silicone tape (the was time consuming for me). Now they are sealed with adhesive lined heat shrink.
3. Epoxy electronics are now molded in smaller mold and then wrapped in heat shrink.
4. Switch is painted Red and Blue.
5. Every unit is shipped with a "WUKA KING Performance Products" decal.

Again Thanks for the great reviews!!!

New edition looks good. My original serial #1 production unit is working great. Super happy with it and would highly recommend this unit.

Ordered and quickly shipped.

Thanks again HTC!

Mark.

I ordered one and used for about a week on my F650 twin. It did run a bit smoother in the lower gears after shifting, but not enough to warrant the cost albeit minimal. HTC took my controller back and refunded my $$ as soon as he received my controller. With a 100% refund if unhappy, it's worth a shot to try out IMO. I works for many, just not for me and my bike.

Two questions...
  1. Why not just go ahead and switch it automatically based on the outside air temp instead of using a manual switch? Seems like that would be very simple and convenient.
  2. Taking the above question a step further, would it make sense to make a controller that constantly varied the differential temperature adjustment based on the outside air temp versus having just two static manual settings?
  3. How do we go about ordering these?

Thanks,

Steve
