    I bought a 2010 F800GS about three months ago. I immediately noticed the snatchy throttle. I thought that with time I would get used to it and be able to compensate for it. Nope. I just couldn't control the bike at low speed like I wanted to. I was starting to get really frustrated with the bike. I looked at a bunch of different fixes that were being talked about on the forums. Thought about the throttle tamer. It was affordable, but I wasn't too keen on having to mess with the heated grips. I also thought about the Power Commander, but there just wasn't a whole lot of convincing information out there and it was pricey (yeah, I'm cheap). Then I ran across HTCA's fix. It looked like there was a lot of good feed back. The price was right, so I pulled the trigger. Bottom line, I'm glad I did! The bike is much easier to manage, especially at low speeds. The service was great. It was very easy to install. I'm a very satisfied customer. Thanks.:clap

    Ordered JUICE today, even though I'm in mid-MO and will prolly ride 25+ days per yr at over 90 degrees.
    I'm not worried about the switching because I had a product on my Multistrada that operated at about a 30 deg. offset. And it worked great at all temps.
    But mostly. I'm sure I'll forget to change it on hot days!

    On the Multi, it changed the temp. gauge, does this unit?

    The temp display does not change on the F800gs (as a note - it does on the Huskies). The BMW's have a separate air temp sensor that drives the air temperature display (below the headlight). The Huskies use the air box temp for the display readings.

    Just a quick note about my experience with the power controller. After “up” grading to an ’09 F800GS due to my well sorted F650GS being taken out by a learner driver while parked, I really have been struggling to come to grips with this throttle problem.

    The difference between idle and a good wack of throttle was about 2mm of grip movement and no amount of cable adjustment and fiddling helped. Even small bumps in the road were enough to launch forward and no matter how much I tried there was no way to keep smooth in traffic – riding over corrugations would have been funny to watch if it hadn’t been me... The 800’s previous owner had spent a ton of cash farkling it up and when I was buying it I couldn’t figure out why he sold it at such a great loss, after riding it for a while I’m pretty sure I found the reason.

    After a bit of research I came across the power controller and have to admit I was a bit sceptical at first, cautious that something quite simple and very modestly priced could solve all my problems. Well it arrived today and 40 minutes later I was out and about grinning like a mad man! The difference is night and day, black and white, the difference is between selling the F800 and buying something else and keeping it! Thanks Coonass, you saved me a fortune…

    Thanks Mate! It is feeedback like yours that keeps us going... knowing that people appreciate our work here! I have a great job and don't need the cash to survive, but it gives my 2 sons some good life lessons here on how to run a business... Its a lot of work for me to keep on there ass to stay up with the build quality, inventory and make sure the orders ship the same day.

    And if anyone (the original purchaser) is ever un-happy with the product I will take it back at anytime... and I warranty if forever! As long as I am still around doing the builds... if it fails send it to me I will send you a brand new one!
    .:D

    Ordered one (Juice), shipped within a few hours, and arrived few days after, nice!
    Have yet to try (this weekend), but I am wondering where to put the external sensor. Personally I think in the airbox would be best (that's why the BMW sensor lives there imho), anyone can comment about the preferred location for the sensor?
    Thanks a lot.

    Living in colder altitudes of Colorado I normally run it switched to blue or colder setting. Seldom use it in the red position unless it's really warm.

    I live in Crete, Greece. The climate is Mediterranean and the temperature seldom falls more than 0 degrees Celcius (32F).

    So, which of the two options is better for me? I guess Juice should be ok.

    Thank you.

    Mike, For Crete the "Juice" will work fine.

    BTW - the Cold air is not the concern it is the Hot weather ( long days above 85 deg f) where the "Power Controller" is the better option.

    go here to order... Thanks http://wukaking.com
