Put in a boosterplug. It helps in the low RPM in low gears with stumbling. It's not a huge difference though. Is it worth $160 US ? I don't know. Maybe if the low speed stuttering REALLY bothers you. It's supposed to help with acceleration but I'm still in the break in period so I can't really hammer it.

I have one ordered. I'm really only expecting it to help out the low speed jitters. I think a lot of their other "claims" are a little far fetched though. Thanks for the review!

Sure no problem. I'm just happy the bike started up and ran like before (but a bit better). I have to admit messing with one of the sensors had me a little nervous at first, but it all worked out.

The length of cable for the external sensor isn't super long, fully elongated and routed under the tank it barely reaches the headstock. I zip-tied mine on to a metal bracket under the lip of the tank on the right side.

Hi all,

Considering a boosterplug myself - the poor fueling at low RPM is just annoying coming from a a couple of bikes that were really smooth.

One question I haven't seen the answer to that I'm hoping you all can help with:

My understanding is that boosterplug essentially reports a colder air temperature in the intake so that the ECU enriches the fuel mixture.

Does this cause erroneous outside air temperature readings on the dashboard? Is outside air temperature read from different location?

Thanks for your inputs!

No and Yes. Nothing gets reported, no check engine light, etc. Yes it moves the sensor outside of the airbox, into clearer air.

That's a good question.

I would need to have a long hard look at the wiring diagram. I am not sure if the displayed temp is the Air Intake Temperature.
This need not be the same as Ambient Temperature and usually is not!.
