    Is the IICE Air I got for my 2009 F800GS compatible with the new 2013 F800GS?... not that I am officially looking ;)

    DOES anyone know the lead time to get the unit? 1 month, 2 months, 6 months?

    I'm not sure that question is allowed :deal

    With the greatest of respect for the fantastic work that Poolside does on these marvellous little farkles, with JJ (The Gimp's Gimp) support, the bottle neck of moving units rapidly to the market seems to be the most obvious opportunity to improve the entire initiative.

    As a satisfied customer - I unconditionally endorse the Ice Air (LOVE it to bits!) - but I fear that the delivery/turnaround cycle is impractically slow.

    My encouragement to Mr P and JJ would be to consider this, 'How might you improve this important element of the client satisfaction experience?'

    Just my 2c - and please believe me, I'm coming from a place of encouragement and support - neither judgement nor derision.

    Others may have wildly different viewpoints ..... :ear ....? - and I could be completely out to lunch

    ride safe! Mr B

    The lead time is ah, variable. Poolside would know but I think it depends on his real job, vacation time, how motivated he is to make them and someother unkown factors.

    So to answer the question, no.

    Holy moley, where the heck have I been? I've been out bidding jobs and I'm back now. I haven't looked at the backlog of posts yet, I hope there isn't a riot going on. :zilla

    I've got this batch nearly complete, and I'm ordering parts for the new orders tomorrow.

    I understand what you;re thinking. The answer is it takes fuel and oxygen to make the heat. Without both components, present in a combustible mass ratio range, there can be no heat.

    Sorry about that, sometimes it isn't easy to find information in here. Alright, most of the time.

    Yes, it is compatible with both bikes. The Intake Air Temperature sensor on the two bikes are the same.

    Will the IICE Air plug into and work on the new LC GS?

    I just finished an assembly all-nighter. Two maybe three more of those and this batch will be shipped. I'll be at it tonight, and again on Friday.

    Yes. According the the factory parts fiche, the new Wethead uses the same Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor as the Hexhead.
