    Re: BoosterPlug

    Quick update - I've been away from home this past week, but while away my neighbour kindly took delivery of the BoosterPlug I ordered before my travel. Anyway, I intend to fit later in the week - ready to play for the weekend (if not before). The fitment requires the removal the entire air filter assembly to gain access to the AIT sensor found on the throttle valve between the cylinder heads. That's easy enough, but I have to route the BoosterPlug external sensor carefully under the tank and zip tie towards the steering head - that will be a little more time consuming I suspect. Anyway, for those following this thread - I'll keep you posted!
    Cheers

    Re: BoosterPlug

    Decided this evening to fit the BoosterPlug at 9pm - so into the garage with cup of tea, radio switched on, tools made ready and bench cleared to lay removed components - all set. The entire air filter assembly easily off in just a few minutes, now exposing the the induction module assembly. Double checked instruction leaflet and found the IAT (intake air temperature) sensor and gingerly disconnect from the left side of the throttle valve assembly - all very straight forward so far. I now have to fit the OEM AIT into the BoosterPlug and then fit the BoosterPlug AIT lead / connector into the throttle valve assembly and then the 3rd long cable with temp sensor runs under fuel tank and positioned under steering head to a cool place with good airflow. Problem for the next hour was trying to connect the AIT into the BosterPlug - you need tiny hands and I just could not do it! The only way this can be properly done is with the seat and fuel tank removed or at very least tank elevated a few inches. So while the task itself is straight forward as makers claim the actual process for a Dyna is unfortunately not. Triumph models and BMW's are quick 10 minute jobs, but Harleys are a balls ache! I'll have another go later this week, too tired now to continue. Will keep you all posted.

    First time taking the tank off? No naked flames anywhere then as there'll be petrol everywhere when you remove the balance hose ...

    Re: BoosterPlug

    Mate and fellow club member Kev came round earlier tonight and kindly helped me with the tank removal etc - job done in just under an hour. So BoosterPlug now neatly fitted and I'm ready to roll. Weather forecast over next few days is not good, but should get out over weekend, so fingers crossed the device lives up to expectation! Honest review to follow on forum and if I'm totally satisfied I'll do a future write up in the Quin.
    Cheers

    Re: BoosterPlug

    Right folks - despite the terrible weather, I managed to get out for a short 30 minute blast earlier this afternoon. Before I start, I ride a 2013 model Fat Bob, which I've owned from new and done over 25,000 miles in standard trim but with V&H slip-ons.
    Honest Review - Part 1
    Once engine fully warmed up, I then switched off for a few minutes before starting up again. Start up was no different, tick over remained unchanged, but there is a better response pick up when gear engaged and pulling away. The bike did feel more responsive at low speed and gear changing seemed a little slicker. Acceleration was not noticeably different, but I really need to ride the bike for a few hours to be really sure. The bike did ride better at low speed and the throttle more responsive. Popping through the slip-ons on closing off the throttle going down hill had been reduced but not eliminated.
    Unlike some of the owners on Youtube that claim an incredible change - that was not my experience, but my expectation was always modest. Its not a performance mod, it enhances your low speed experience, running slightly richer and cooler in traffic - Boosterplug tricks ECU into thinking air temp is much cooler at low RPM. Cruising and high speed was always good on my bike and remains so, Boosterplug does not change performance at higher revs.
    So - whilst I really need to ride for a number of hours and get a few hundred miles under my belt with this mod, my initial response is positive, it does seem to deliver a change - but not one that will blow your mind! Compared to a power commander the cost of a Boosterplug is a bargain - £132 (incl postage & package) with very quick delivery from Danish manufacturer. You also get a few complimentary gifts, kneck scarf, key ring, stickers etc. The product is well made and comes with a life time guarantee and so far 350,000 have been sold world wide.
    Weather forecast this weekend is awful in my neck of the woods, but next week looking much better and I'll do another post Review Part 2 will subsequently follow.
    Hope this has been of interest to those of you following this thread.
    Cheers

    Good write up Rick, thanks. At that price and it achieving what you wanted at the lower end it sounds good.
