    <TABLE border=0 cellPadding=5 width=650><TBODY><TR><TD>Let me correct that phrase, because it's misleading. The IICE Air does not make the motor run richer all of the time. It only makes it run richer during acceleration.


    This should greatly help me lower my engine temps when running dirt in 1/2nd gear at basically walking speeds since I am rarely at a steady state throttle while navigating rough/loose ground. Lots of subtle off/on throttle adjustments coupled with steering inputs at very slow speeds, mostly going uphill. If the engine goes richer on accelerations even at these slow speeds the temp should lower and pre-ignition diminish. Downhill less throttle and more compression/braking to maneuver. This next spring/summer will tell the tale. Hopefully I will have both the 'ICE & Cool' by then. [Ink me in for a 'Cool' when released]

    </TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>
    <TABLE border=0 cellPadding=5 width=650><TBODY><TR><TD>Yes. And the two operating conditions that JJ refers to are during acceleration (IICE Air), and during throttle tip-in (IICE Cool.) The IICE Air does one, the IICE Cool does the other.

    If you want to feel it where it counts, get the motor to run richer during acceleration, and richer during throttle tip-in transitions.


    'Cool' will help enormously to smooth out the aforementioned subtle throttle feeds that in turn help me stay upright at slow speeds. At higher speed I can get enough air over oil cooler/engine to keep the engine temps sub-critical; only at slow speeds does temp become an issue. Stopping on a steep loose hill to cool the engine is most often not an option. Thanks again guys.

    Would you consider it a mistake, at least less beneficial to the motor to purchase and run only the Air, rather than the Air/Cool combo?

    Have the Cools gone on sale?

    O.K. . I have violated every rule of bike mods. I have had Ghost install the gofasternugen (in the dark parking lot of a diner I might add). Previous to that I had him change the airfilter, the end can, and set the valves. I also added a huge amount of aerodynamic drag with a new tinted Cee Baileys shield and matching huge winglets. And I need a throttle body adjustment/sync. So, I added several things at once to a bike that needed service. Good to go. lol


    Report: Sorry, dudes. I gots no idea WTF the Aire has done. I screwed up all possible testing data. But, bike runs good. Throttle response is good for a bike that needs a TB sync.

    Can't wait for the cool. Maybe I can be of some use to the collective then. I screwed this test up beyond recognition. :(

    That's an easy fix.

    Either use the 0º jumper setting to see how the bike runs now after all of your adjustments THEN move the jumper to the -20º setting

    OR

    unplug the ICE Air and run the bike for a while, THEN plug it back in and see what differences you notice.

    I bet it's in this 200 page thread somewhere, but I was wondering if these little things ship out fairly fast these days. I'm excited to get it plugged in!

    Thanks.

    I think that they ship pretty fast after they finally get built. :evil

    It's like the guy has a day job or something. :lol3

    <table border="0" cellpadding="5" width="650"><tr><td>That's true Nomad, they don't sit around here after they're built. :D

    This project started out as a cool thing to do for my bike, and for a few friend's bikes. Then it became a cool thing to do for the ADVrider community (you can thank Marketing for that. :lol3 )

    I wouldn't mind doing this on a permanent or full time basis, as my day job I mean. :D We'll see. Besides the IICE Cool, which we'll be working on over the next couple of months, there are a few more electronic gadgets slated for development after that. And if JJ has anything to do with it we'll be rolling those other devices out for Spring.

    I'm hoping to start this batch into the epoxy process over the weekend, and shipped by Tuesday.

    I keep forgetting about that. Using the 0º setting I mean.

    Hey Raven,

    No disrespect but read first page of this thread...especially the 'FAQs' and answers.

    Next I had to :lol3 when I saw you ask "what do I need to order"....damn you are a trusting soul! You make your own decisions...but ICE is needed to use the entire range of upcoming Cool....or you can simply punt:wink:

    Me I need whatever I want...:brow

    Wallowa Did you ever notice that a phrase like yours

    is always followed by disrespect! Hell I thought for a moment my Ex wife was on this thread. Thanks for the reply away. All the information I needed was in your response. Wallowa you are right I am a trusting soul and I make my own decisions and that decision is I do not need this product. Thanks

    Poolside don't ship out the next batch on Tuesday. you will screw up my entire week. I have a XR650l that I have ripped apart in my garage and if it get a shipment from you I will install the IICE and rip up the roads around the house all week. No Turkeyday, no bike fixed and I will have to listen to :sweeti:ddog all week.

    Oh what the hell, hurry up :whipI wanna :ricky:ricky:ricky

    Wallowa has nothing to do with this product. :huh

    This is the last IICE Air sale before we put it 'on ice' as they say, in order to start on the upcoming IICE Cool product.

    This is what is available for your bike, just do it while you can. :D
