    At this point, is it possible to see 'how much' er, 'hotrodding' this device does? I hear some interesting user observations. Is there any quantifiable data as yet?

    Interested though. :ear

    Just carried out my 60 000km service and installed the ice air As factory set. After a short ride I did notice a significant smoothness and more grunt. looking forward to the ice cool. by the way what is the ETA of the ice cool ??
    Great work poolside and crew. :1drink

    Yeah, well, it was either that or explain to my wife why she needed to take the picture while I modeled the glove... :rofl

    Besides, after she stuck her head into the garage, saw the GS's side panels on the floor, and I mumbled something about intake air temperature offset thermistor...she wasn't coming back!

    In hindsight, Pandora's RUSH mix probably didn't help, either... :lol3

    Damn Poolside - it's incredible! I've got I dunno - 500 miles on it - damn - FUN! Every day I'm jonesin' to ride - I hate taking the car now. I commute every day and them 21 miles is too damn short! Even in stop'n'go traffic - it's fun playing, don't put your foot down - then....full throttle - great smooth acceleration, hardly any back sputter anymore...

    Whiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii:clap:clap:clap:clap

    I put mine on last night. I don't know about more power, but I definitely feel that the engine is smoother on take offs and hard acceleration.

    Thanks Poolside.

    Ok ... no more talk about how great this damn thing is until I get mine! :lol3

    Ok ... go ahead ... yuk it up....

    Have any of you recent installers messed with the 10 degree setting or are you just leaving at 20 and feeling smug??:wink:

    I'm happy with the 10. Might as well get used to it anyway since the Cool will only work with the 10 setting :1drink

    This is an interesting fact that blew by me...but I believe it will work in my favor..since I looking for better throttle control and perhaps a cooler running engine off road under hot conditions and heavy slow speed loads...being "stuck" with '-10' in conjunction with the Cool is an advantage...since -10 is for the hottest conditions..

    PS and JJ tell me when to send in $$$ for a Cool! And again, like so many have said: Thanks.:wink:

    <table border="0" cellpadding="5" width="650"><tr><td>You're right about one thing OCJ. When the IICE Air and IICE Cool are both installed, the IICE Air should be on the -10°C setting.

    But the thing is, it isn't about having to 'get used to' the -10°C setting. Because when the Air and Cool are both installed, the -10°C setting on the Air works better than the -20°C setting.

    Excellent point made PS. I shall revert to the -20 setting until summer, when the Cools starts shiping out! :-) I have to admit though that low speed throttle control seems to be a wee bit better at the -20 setting, at the expense of slightly higher fuel consumption...

    -20 vs -10....for two different ambient temp ranges as I understood it...does the addition of the Cool change the IICE setting [-10 vs -20] temperature ranges? So that with the Cool the IICE @ -10 is not for high air temps but for the lower -20 temp range?

    When used by itself, the IICE Air has 3 temperature adjustments, of which the 'factory' -20 setting is the 'normal' setting for most riding conditions.
    But
    When used with an IICE Cool there is just one setting that works best, the -10 setting.

    When both (IICE Air & Cool) are used together, the 'overlap' of the two IICE products changes the EFI system such that the -10 setting is the best.

    Of course when using the IICE Air by itself you can use any setting that works best for you and your situation.

    Another happy customer here.

    Simple installation and similar results as recent postings. The motor just "feels" better. Worth the investment and I will likely be a COOL customer as well.

    Thanks JJ...I guess what I am asking is if with the combo of the IICE and the Cool will I still be set for the really hot ambient air temps, like with only the IICE at -10?

    I must reply again with another kudo. I've had this thingy installed for a couple weeks now and after riding home from work today I have to say it really does make the bike a ton more fun. I don't know if it's making more power or not but it sure as hell feels like it is and that's good enough for me.

    Can't wait for the rest of your products.:clap
