    Does it means that there is no order list for the Cool yet, isn't it?

    I received mine in the mail today!! I didn't know what it was or for but after a little thought it must be this mystery device I heard of. Looks like I have a little project to do. Somewhere in this thread has got to be a photo of a GS install.....

    I finally got my long awaited IICE Air a few days ago. Was I cheesed-off for waiting almost 6 month for the bloomin’ thing? Of course I was, but...
    Installation wise: 3 panels to remove, 2 plugs to connect and, voila!, the whole process took no longer than the indicated 15 minutes. A doodle!
    Now, does it do what it says on the can when you start-up the tracktor? A loud and adamant: YES!
    Jim, you might be a lazy bum who has no business acumen whatsoever to help you realise what potential goldmine you’re using as a long-chair in the sun by your pool, and the skill to streamline a production process of a lump of blackcurrant jam, but you’re a damn’ good engineer... :clap The friggin’ thing works the part!
    It might increase fuel consumption a little (well, in earnest it does the combustive mix richer, and it doesn’t do that by investing in sub-prime derivatives as it learned the hard way - as we all did - that this doesn’t work, but by increasing the amount of.... yes, fuel! to the mix). But as I’m not about to cross the Gobi desert I’m not particularly concerned with mileage per tank.
    What the Air is actually very good at doing is smoothing power delivery at low revs in such a way that pot-pot-ing along picturesque English villages at walking pace in 2nd became all of a sudden not only possible but also enjoyable. For those not interested in such trifle let it be noted that opening the gas on exit from tight bends when in the process of shaming head-to-toes leather clad (knee sliders included) posers riding sport bikes :lol3 is also a greatly improved experience as the pull-away is much more linear and thus more controllable. All in all, twisting the throttle open from lower revs feels smoother and more continuous which is a definite improvement over the "standard" behaviour of the '05 GS12 power-plant (with a Remus exhaust in my case)
    So, to sum it up: after beginning to fear that it will never show up, the IICE Air finally did and in a matter of a few short hours of riding made me forget all the frustration accumulated while waiting for it.
    What's certain is that I will definitely plan ahead for a looong wait when ordering the IICE Cool... :D

    Love the affirmation of what our two-up-riding can experience in the near future. :ear:thumb

    My wife and I ride our near vintage 1150GS with an r1100gs final drive off-road and need every bit of the low end that the bike can provide. Our turn to install the unit is months away, and we are still aok about it. Build away bro!

    <BR>Heh heh, nice one Virco! That was one of the best posts ever in here. I'm glad your experience offset the wait.

    <BR>Hey folks, something like this has happened before. A fellow ADVrider is getting out of bikes for the time being. That means that S.S., IA is selling his place in the IICE Air Order List. He's in the next batch, which should be going out on Saturday. So if you buy his place in line you'll get your Air a little sooner.

    Send me a Message or an Email and let me know.

    Thank you

    <BR>

    <BR>THANK YOU for your recent orders everyone!

    The Order List is updated to include your initials.

    Thanks also for the ride reports. It's always good to hear.

    Pretty much what Virco says about improvement. Bottom end much smoother and responsive. On 2nd tank of fuel and still averaging 47-48. Never bought anything though and waited 5 months for delivery, but it's here, it works, well made, and I'm happy.

    Maybe the next step will fit a 2015 wethead RT so I can order in time.

    <BR>What can I say, it's all part of the experience. Thanks for the report Riverdawg. And regarding the RT, I can say with some certainty that the Cool and Smooth will be out before the 2015 model year. :D

    If you were taking orders, I'd buy now for the 010 camhead even if it meant something different when I eventually get a wethead.

    Made a noticeable difference on my 1150 GS .
    Will the next product be usable on an older motorcycle like mine?

    71 today and did not think I would live to see them become a reality. Well, now there is hope. JJ & PS please stash one of each for me!

    If anyone is interested in purchasing one right now (brand new, never installed) I have one for sale in the classifieds.. no markup, no waiting. I sold my bike back in June and don't see myself buying a GS in the near future.
