With the new controllers and dual O2 sensors, independant cylinder management and even anti knock sensors I have to wonder why you think you need an air temp spoofer for such a machine? This is fixing a problem that IMO, does not exist.

Have you ridden a 1200 yet? Or just feel a need to join the cult?
Back at you..."Have you ridden a 1200 yet?"...of course the transition throttle is 'snatchy' and try running smoothly with subtle throttle inputs in first gear at walking speeds...up a steep dirt trail...perhaps the 1150/1100s were worse, I have no point of reference for I have not ridden them..but my '07 GSA has a crappy slow speed throttle response...and guess what...the IICE Air and BP both smoothed a lot of that pitching you over the bars when dancing off road in first gear...much, much smoother throttle and power roll on..

But hey, I could be wrong..
