Darn..I thought the COOL was for sale.
Thought the announcement was for the Cool preorder
I haven't even done my cool review yet....
Can you guys please buy these remaining 57 Airs so production of the Cool can commence??
I did not need the local BMW dealers test/demo rider to tell me my 09 1200 GS runs equal to or greater than the 2010, 11 or 12 models! Buy these things!
<BR>It's 4am... Do you know where your IICE air is?
This was the view early today. These Airs are about to get their epoxy overshoes.
Just got in on this, placed my order. Hope it evens out the throttle a bit.
What is your bike doing now that you'd like to improve upon?
SIGH...in other words...they are not in the mail on time (AGAIN!)
I know where mine is!
( and its not on my bike.)
if you look closely , you can see its still in the -30 setting from my last "test"
Its been un-installed for a few days, Ill try it again in a week , and see if I can tell any difference, once again.
Yeah...from what I have been reading it's attached to your bike...WHERE IT ISN'T PROVIDING ANY NOTICEABLE DIFFERENCE IN RIDE QUALITY!!!
rest assured, when you do finally get the device, it will do great things to your bike.
it just didnt do them to mine, because my bike is old, worn out, and the rocker end play adjustment was at the upper end of the specification.
Poolside- My 1150 runs pretty well, but it's hard to keep a steady speed below 10 mph without a lot of clutch. Here in Massachusetts, that's often necessary in traffic. At highway speeds I'm hoping for less hesitation on the throttle. If my bike ran as well in the summer as it does at 35 degrees, I'd be pretty stoked.
You realize that idle rpm is REALLY close to 10mph in 1st gear right?
Yeah, I get that. Does your bike ride perfectly smoothly at idle with the clutch engaged?
Just for reference, when I installed the BoosterPlug on my 800GS I didn't notice a difference. The bike felt the same, mileage was the same, etc. Since it's not as easy to get to the airbox on the 800, I just left it there for a couple of months until I had a need to remove the cover. First ride after I pulled the BoosterPlug I really noticed a difference. The throttle was very snatchy off-idle and taking off from a stop was nowhere near as smooth. A couple days later I put the BP back on and all was right with the world again. (Except for the rear hub. )
You might want to put the ICE on and ride for a week or two. Then take it off and see if you notice a difference. That was the only way I realized the BP was actually working.
good solid adviceYeti.
and thats what im doing, its been on and off, and various settings for the last month or more.
Im in a spell without it all now, hoping when I put it back on Ill notice something.
No, it won't, not at idle.
The IICE Air helps but the amount of torque that is 'suddenly' added along with gear snatch and suspension reaction all contribute to jerkiness and the need for clutch control.
DAMHIK that dry clutches are not meant to be slipped any significant amount.
Try putting it on and forgetting about it for a few weeks. Then take it off and see if you notice a difference.
I didn't when I put my BP on but I sure as hell did when I took it off a month later.
