    As I live in the province of Quebec, Canada, temperature over 85F is not a big concern. Only a handful of thoses days. For this reason I know the ''JUICE'' is the right option. But I'm wondering what are the consequenses If I take a couple day ride down south in the middle of summer with temp over 85. If I dont have the ''controller'' will it be harmful for the engine? or is the worst I can expect is only a little loss of power ?:hmmmmm

    Running the Juice above 85 you will be fine. It is very difficult to calculate the effect above 85F since the Juice (and the Power Controller) only enriches on the changes in the throttle position. I have used my F800gs on very hot days on the blue setting -20) with no ill effects. One thing we do know is that an engine will run cooler with a little more fuel...
    also we do know the air density changes as the heat increases... so the idea of the switch on the Power Controller allows us techies to pull back on the enrichment as the air temp increases.

    Thanks!

    I've got one of the first f-800 GSs that came out of the local dealer and have hated the snatchy throttle, so I am very intrigued about the PC. The one question I do have, however, is with the enrichment of the mixture, how much fuel economy do we lose?

    Very little difference... you could dig through this thread it has a report how myself and a fellow rider ran across Colorado. One F800gs with a Power Controller (me) and a friend without. There was almost no difference at fill up time.The Power Controller adds fuel when you are going up and down on the throttle (open loop mode)... and make no changes to constant throttle mode (closed loop mode). Therefore you get the benefit but almost no noticeable fuel consumption changes.

    Wanted to add my voice to those who think this thing works. I had the same snatch as everyone else with my stock 8gs. HTCA was fast on the supply end, the install was just as easy as the instructions made it look, and the results so far are beyond expectations. It works so well that I constantly take it for granted and forget it is there. My bike is still under warranty so will have to remember to remove it before the 6K service. I am curious to see the difference once the weather turns hot and I flip the little switch - guessing that I'll notice no difference other than I am a smoother rider, esp. in the low speed stuff. If there is a difference in gas mileage, it is negligible - certainly a small trade-off for the gain in control. Thanks for making me a better, safer, smoother rider HT.

    The thing works! I did the CBDR and found no differences with fuel economy between my fellow FKRS. I just did my 20,000km service, I took off all plastic, and removed the gadget (just in case they would bitch about warranty or something), and for the 1 hour ride in without the gadget I noticed the very snatchy throttle. It sucked. As soon as I got my baby back I replaced all the gack, and noticed the smooth transition to happy throttle after replacing the gadget.

    Get the damn gadget. Makes a hell of a difference to happiness. Thanks again HTCA.

    Update here gang,
    My son the electrical engineering student landed an internship with an electrical engineering firm for the summer. So..... He will quit building units after these last 30 or so are sold. I can sell the parts as a "kit" with all of the instructions if there is any interest... or if someone wants to take this project over to keep the inmates happy here look me up.

    Congrats to the family!
    You know, a kit would be a great idea. It might also make shipping to some parts of the world less of a hassle at customs as it would be pieces and not an assembled final product.
    +1 on the kit idea.
    A kit thread could then be started for anyone with assembly problems.
