    For my experience with a bbpower chip and a -20 simulator, guess "mouthfullofflake" non sensitive issues should be on somewhere else.
    Added the gizmo to a 1150ADV and a K12RS. Worked as supposed pushing the bikes in an emotive way.
    Searching for more on the 1150 changed to the chip with Y piece, open Remus, K&N and modified air intakes.
    Impressive (yes, BOXER POWER...).
    For curiosity added the -20 gizmo. Kept on working making a wild bike best suited for some kind of competition.
    A mate with an RT tested the gizmo and it didn't leave the bike anymore.
    So...
    Go on Poolside!!

    I know what you mean, but you can't blame these nice people about the time it's taking. I'm the one holding up the show so to speak. And speaking of show, I have some more pics from the latest batch build from last weekend. I'll put them up later tonight.

    I thought I'd let you guys know what I experienced.
    My 2008 GSA has always stumbled when I accelerated from a stop or from a low speed.
    A month or so ago I installed the IICE Air. I noticed the hesitation has gone away. It's pretty subtle, but I'm happy with the results. I can now gun it and not have that hesitation.

    Deburr with a strip of Scotch-brite pad, then check the finish length

    The vial needs a few holes to use as tie down points

    A small nail heated to red hot is a good tool for this

    A question for the far future: I have an Air on my 1150, and I like it. I *may* be buying a new 1200 GS this year, and plan to probably keep both bikes. If I don't buy a second air for the new bike right now (in your current pre-order based sale) will I be out of luck forever, or will you go back to making all the devices next year, after the Cool is finished?

    Oh yeah, and when can I order my cool? :lol3

    <table border="0" cellpadding="5" width="650"><tr><td>Hey there, JC.

    Regarding builds... As it is, future builds sort of exist at the whim of the customers, if that makes any sense. I'm sure that if the Marketing department were nearby he'd be over here every day lobbying for building an inventory. And 'lobbying' probably doesn't capture the essence.&#8194;:lol3


    We must cover the more in-depth sales-related questions in the Vendors thread.

    Interesting that the reason people buy the newer 1200GS bikes is because they don't have surging issues, they don't have the snatchy throttle issues nor do they have roll on and roll off throttle issues that the 1150 and 1100 models are so notorious for. With the new controllers and dual O2 sensors, independant cylinder management and even anti knock sensors I have to wonder why you think you need an air temp spoofer for such a machine? This is fixing a problem that IMO, does not exist.

    Have you ridden a 1200 yet? Or just feel a need to join the cult? :ear

    I've ridden a few 1200s, yes, and recently rode the 2012, and definitely fell in lust. That being said, my 1150 (120K miles on it) never really had a surging issue. I find the ICE Air has made the bike peppier and more responsive, and can imagine that adding that to the 1200. I wouldn't add it to the 1200 until I got some time on it. Since I want to ride the (as yet unpurchased) 1200 for a while, I was just wondering if I could buy an Air later, or should buy one now. (If I do get the 1200, I still plan to keep the 1150)

    Somebody tell me more about this cult.

    Do we get to wear matching sweatsuits?

    Are there dues?

    Do we have to shave our heads?

    Do we get to hang out with John Travolta and Tom Cruise?

    What's the cult's position on free love?



    Look, you can't just casually drop the "cult" thing and not explain it. That's just rude.
