    <BR>This post illustrates and explains the 4 jumper settings.

    The jumper selects the desired temperature offset.

    Really hot, use the -10°C offset setting.
    Really cold, use the -30°C offset setting.
    Rest of the time, use the factory setting of -20°C offset.

    Note: The -0°C setting turns off the IICE Air, and operates from the stock sensor.

    And one final question... what happens if you lose the jumper? How does the engine behave with NO jumper?

    <table border="0" cellpadding="5" width="650"><tr><td>No jumper is the same as a disconnected Intake Air Temperature sensor. With the sensor unplugged the motor runs rough. And sometimes needs a slightly longer crank time before starting. Bike will still get you wherever you're going, and back. I rode around for about a week with the sensor unplugged just to see the extent of it.

    Is there a common source for these jumpers? Radio Shack, for example, or??

    <BR>Yes Radio Shack has them, and any PC store.

    Go to the IT department where you work with your jumper in hand. In a couple of minutes, they'll give you a half dozen from machines waiting for disposal.

    As a suggestion for future refinement....

    Would it be a better set up if without a jumper it functioned the same as no change. Meaning that with the jumper in the 0 change position or missing all together it would run as if there were no unit installed. Or is there a reason for it to run as if there was not IAT?

    But why not have just be set to 0 if no jumper is installed. That way it works.

    This very simple design was intended as a low cost unit.

    To have it 'default' to the standard air temp probe with no jumper would require additional complexity, and thus cost.

    As a default way of dealing with missing parts/problems, it just easier to remove it from the circuit until a suitable jumper/solution can be found.

    If you want a one size fits all (situations) solution, you'll have to wait for a more advanced version.

    Hey. When you ship ours to Texas, can you make a separate temp setting for us? Like "surface of the sun"? (5 days straight over 105, 35 days straight over 100. July's average high 103.)
