    Been riding it to work and around town the last two days....

    Works.
    Smoother throttle response. "Like buttah." Best description I can give is that the throttle response feels more like my old carbed '98 F650ST but with gobs more power.
    The little snatchynes that was left after I switched to 15/42 is gone. Not a drop or hair of any poor throttle snatch anymore. :clap
    More power on demand so I twist less throttle to get to speed
    Gas mileage is about the same. Maybe slightly better if that is possible. Reset the BMW avg gas guage. Havn't put a full tank through it yet. Will soon tho...

    All and all it is a great solution. I give it a big :thumbs

    Best of all the F800GS high rev clatter is diminished to where I can't even hear it now. Tells me the bike was running TOO LEAN for its own good. :D

    Great work HTCoonass

    Did you do anything special with that switch? Just a 2 position? I'll probably be plunking down the cash when I get home for one but a rocker switch would look better on the bike dash. (Yes I'm aware that vanity is a sin)

    Geno2w1, Find a switch you like - mail it to me (or send me a location buy what you want) and I will build it for you!:deal

    :1drinkHows that for customer service!:clap


    Did you do anything special with that switch?

    nope... I though a lot about the switch during the design phase....

    1) fancy dash switches are expensive...most riders wont want to spend the extra cash just for a fancy switch.

    2) can't please everyone....some will want on the bars, some will want the dash, some will want out of site.

    3)the rider can always change it if they like! it is 2 position.... on/on
    If any wants to change it I can send very detailed instructions on how change it....

    Hey, everbody!

    I bought one of these for the r11oorl that I recently bought (and sold) and no longer need it. I never got it installed as the bike I bought was about as smooth as they could get in all areas.

    So, if HighTechCoonAss doesn't object, I have one of his Power Controllers to sell at cost ($75 + $10 Shipinng = $85).

    Please let me know if anyone is interested. It's a great product and I believe meets a market need!

    Thanks, and hope I'm not stepping on any ones toes!

    I finally got around to installing and testing the power controller. This unit definately smoothens out the bike. I don't know if my bike was running too lean or rich, but whatever the case may be this unit makes the bike run better. However, probably unrelated to the installation (hope so), the word "Service" is now showing on my display. I know for sure "Service" would appear for a few seconds then go off before.....so is this an indicator that the bike is due for service? I only have 2000 miles on the bike.....so maybe something to do with time?

    Anyway, the unit works well.

    If it is a service date.... it will show service / then a date. that what my bike does.... the Powered Controller will not cause a "service due" ... I have plugged in many of the units to my bike using the gs911 computer interface... no service display alarming happens.

    BTW...With the GS911 I was able to turn off my service date reminder...an I set my oil change reminder. great tool - but expensive.

    While wandering the boards, I found the controller by HTCA and was intrigued by the responses and the price. So I jumped on board and ordered one last night, and before I woke up this morning there was a shipping notification in the inbox. Shazaam that is what I call service.

    I can't wait to receive the product and experience all the benefits of this controller, thanks again for the great customer service.
