    Got mine last week. I ran around Sunday after the storm past us here in Boston. Temp was in the mid 50's, original -20 settings. 2007 GSA with a valve job and TBS done about 4k ago with new plugs, fluids and filter changed a week ago. Idle is certainly smoother, but won't comment further until I have a few hundred mixed miles.

    My hopes are that this will help with the throttle hesitation on acceleration...I don't give a shit about popping exhausts or nominal changes in MPG (up or down), but that delay in the acceleration has nearly landed me in a world of hurt more than once.

    Same. There are situations when adding little throttle actually bogs the engine a little, very bad when you're trying to pick-up the bike with using the throttle.

    When twisting the throttle is so much fun, it's hard to stay off the gas huh?

    Of course mine got to the ranch Friday about an hour after I left for the Roll the Bones Rally. :(

    But I unwrapped it today and it will be on the bike before the next weekend. I think Ghost may be putting his on today.

    And let me point out that the availability of the IICE Airs during the ON IICE Sale is a limited time offer. We are now taking the final orders for the last batch of IICE Airs to be made. The order desk is open now, so if you were waiting to get your order in before, now is the time.

    After we finish this last batch of IICE Airs, the assembly fixtures will be modified for the IICE Cools, and our full attention will be focused on that product.

    We will have more to add about the IICE Cools in due course but for now we want to meet the need for the last batch of IICE Airs.
