    I'm waiting on the 7th month now, with no ETA.

    I would say you unless you needed it for a ride, I would plan on waiting til early 2014.

    <BR>It amazes even me Stan. The last two batches were just caught in exactly the wrong spot, it couldn't be helped.

    While I truly commiserate with those that have not received an Air, I empathize more with Poolside busting his balls and devoting his time to getting the devices put together after his "day job"….this is come from someone who is counting the days [unknown as this time how many...] until I can buy a "Cool" and a "Smooth":wink:

    Let me finish up these last two batches, and I am finishing them up, then we'll see what's what regarding building more. There is the next product to spend some time on as well I hope.

    <BR>I'm calling it a day. I put in a couple of hours tonight, and I'll be at the 'home office' tomorrow. That gives me a few hours tomorrow to put in. Next for this batch is the first-pass electrical test, then into the epoxy. See you tomorrow.

    We're shooting in that direction. We'll start up with the development portion in the GSpot thread before too long.

    Are you working on both batches right now or just the first one?

    <BR>Both, but they're not both at the same point in the process. I'm about twenty percent of the way through the next batch.

    So that our Texas brothers understand. The test units will all be tested in Kali and then they can get their AIR units, right? :evil

    Poolside, got a question for you.

    My f650gs suffered a mishap last year that resulted in it being written off. :cry before it went i managed to recover some parts, including the ice air module. Is this little bit of kit specific to bmw motors or can i fit it to my Yamaha mt-03? engine is the same as the xt660 series.

    I know there may be some modification of the wiring needed, just wondering it it would be feasible to fit?

    I have a diagnostic computer on the way so i won't be fitting it until i get that anyway, was just wondering if there'd be any 'gotchas' to watch out for.

    <BR>This past weekend turned into a little adventure. I helped a friend recover his GS that was broke down in Blythe. One thing led to another and before you know it the weekend was gone. Anyway, I'm at the bench right now prepping enclosures for the epoxy process.

    I don't know if it will work on your Yamaha, but it shouldn't be too hard to find out. I sent you an email.
