    I don't have mine yet, but as it gets colder it made me wonder this (not being an engineer, hopefully this makes some sense):

    Is there a point at which offsetting the temperature [-10] would be less beneficial, because ambient temperature is already so low, or is this not a factor?

    I hope it helps to reduce the backfire of my Leo Vince pipe.

    As others and myself as well have noted, it doesn't 'fix' the backfire problem. That isn't what this modification is about. It may change some of the behavior or circumstances under which a backfire occurs, but they won't magically go away.

    Still no WI on the new list. Oh the hate is palpable. :lol3

    Hey, I may live in Wisconsin, but I'm not a Packer fan, I don't wear any cheese on my head, I don't pick up road kill, and, while I am friends with Hodag, I make sure to keep him on the other side of the state!

    So Poolside, JJ, if you can put aside the Wisconsin thing, please include me in the next shipment. :kumbaya

    Don't know if this helps or not, but I'm on the list, about halfway down, and I ordered mine on Mar 24th.

    Had to laugh at the PayPal invoice where it says "IICE Air - PRE-ORDER! - NO CANCELLATIONS - NO REFUNDS - Shipping on approx. 04/23"

    :rofl

    Poor old Poolside thought this was a little short-term project and instead it turns into a year-long nightmare.

    I believe this batch was the 2nd 30 so there is a third 30 to go and the final batch will be 16. PS will correct me if I got this wrong. I'm hoping to be in the third 30 but suspect I may be in the last batch of 16.

    1st 30 (shipped)
    2nd 30 (shipped)
    3rd 30
    Last 16

    Nice layout.
    All we need is for Poolside - not marketing :lol3:wink: - to give some new ship date info.
    Thanks

    <table border="0" cellpadding="5" width="650"><tr><td>:lol3 Hey I know! I hung up everyone's riding season. Well, not that they didn't ride or anything, but they didn't ride as happy.

    If I had any inkling of the issues that would come along, I sure would have set it up to work on the IICE Air outside of riding season, instead of during it.

    That's the plan for the IICE Cool. The final development and setup for manufacturing will happen over the colder half of the year.

    I'd have preferred that I wait out the Winter, rather than you nice folks wait out the Summer.

    <table border="0" cellpadding="5" width="650"><tr><td>More to the point, the IICE Air improves running and other issues don't matter as much. :lol3

    Seriously though, the backfiring issue is caused by the ECU performing a function called Overrun Fuel Cutoff. Each cycle of the fuel cutoff function causes an amount of unburned combustion mixture to exit the exhaust valve and collect in the exhaust. The backfire, or more aptly afterfire, you hear is the combustion of that collected combustible mixture.

    Among its magical powers, the IICE Cool effectively disables Overrun Fuel Cutoff.



    Thanks everyone for the current IICE Air 'On IICE' Sale orders!

    We're just starting our riding season in the South. Well, all year is riding season so Winter is best described as prime riding season -- temps are not at Hades level. :evil

    So, no, you didn't hang up "everyone's" riding season. :D

    Poolside, speaking only for me, I'm just glad you didn't quit on us and hit the refund button. It had to be tempting at times. Kudos for hanging in, and kudos for the collective for hanging in, too.

    I ride all year long too so no problem waiting here.

    I used to independently manufacture upgraded aluminum frames for remote control helicopters so I understand the challenges of what your trying to put together.
