    I'm not sure if I remember this correctly, but I believe if you use the Gift option in Paypal, you don't get an address on the receipt. Something like that anyway.

    Recieved mine and installed Friday night, did a short ride Saturday. I noticed a difference imediately, much smoother throttle response. This will be much better in all conditions. Thanks Hightechcoonnass!

    Had the thing installed for a week now, and I like it a lot. Doesn't totally eliminate the snatchy behavior, but gets rid of most of it. Especially noticeable entering/exiting corners, as someone mentioned earlier, where the abrupt acceleration can be destabilizing. Much more control in the twisties where there's a lot of rolling on/off. And the hesitation in the mid-3000s is gone, so that's awesome, too. Thanks HTCA!!

    edit: I'm on a F650GS twin, for reference

    Thanks for the kind works! I added my switch location to the install pics...

    The latest Power controller has a longer switch wire to move to a further location.... also the BMW plugs now are sealed with heat shrink with "Hot glue" inside! Very tough stuff!

    The install....

    So you sealed the bmw plug which plugs into the oem sensor? Why did you decide to seal it?

    I have your first version..thanks

    Hi HighTechCoonass,

    Does the booster plug alter the temperature reading on the dash (computer)?

    No sir.... The dash temperature is controlled by the sensor under the headlight.

    Have run mine around different roads yet to try sand, appears to work as bike should except when I am expecting bike to stumble, it does not. Did die once but not as was before whenever lowering throttle there was an issue. Assuming this should be removed for dealer service. And the cable with switch had to loop around it was quite long, maybe give an option of long to pre drill somewhere, shorter to keep under cover.

    The way to calm the beast within is to lower the air box temperature readings to the ECM (engine Control Module)

    Results: Smoother Throttle response on the UP and Down Throttle! a 5 minute fix...

    If you have any questions post here.... The last thread turn into sales and got moved to vendors.....

    There are about 30 bikes out there now running the units.... If you have any question post here.... :D Glad to be of service...

    The term for this is "Resistor Tuning" if you would like to read up on it. There is also the Booster Plug and the Accellerator.... lots of good info......

    These work on almost all of the BMW FI bikes... but since the R1200 for example doesent rev up as fast it is not a big of an issue...

    Thanks for the support!

    If I understand correctly, this gadget gives the ECU an ambient temp that's colder than it actually is to enrich fuel to air mixture, correct me if I'm mistaken. :D How does this gizmo affect fuel consumption (mpg)? And the switch is to turn it on and off?

    How it works....
    The ECU uses the air box temperature on a moving throttle state...
    steady state throttle the EC uses the O2 sensor to adjust fuel....

    the 2 switch position
    Blue setting - Shift the air box readings by -38 deg F ( when air temp is below 85)

    Red setting - Shift the air box readings by -16 deg F (when air temp is above 85)

    Why doesn't BMW do this.... emisions.... the bike run VERY lean to pass emissions testing.
    This give the bike a little more flue for UP and DOWN power.... It makes a huge difference.

    This will stop the Bucking horse syndrome.....
