But the products are going to be amazing.

I am all ears.

But what about cost? When are we going to get a hint on pricing?

soon.

The phrase that comes to mind is "if you have to ask..."









Hey guys, I'm glad you haven't called the contraption device "revolutionary",












yet.

Poolside has banned certain words from being used in any of this.

I'm certain 'revolutionary' is now on that list…

Now, for the really important question...

What does this do for "male enhancement"?

I mean you know the Adventure and loud pipes and lots of crap bolted on a big BMW does seem to some to "enhance" something.

What's in a Name


Ok, the brand name is sorted out. The product line is called IICE.
An acronym for Integrated Injection Calibration Equipment.

The first one, the one for the intake air, is called IICE Air. Pretty original huh?

It's looking like the IICE Air will be in the neighborhood of $70. And they'll be some type of introductory or early bird pricing.

Is that compatible with oilheads only, or does it also work with hexheads?

Works with the hexheads too, and the parallel twins.

Clarification, please

How many devices, total, will you offer, and when will they likely be available as a complete set?

Yeah, I know...obsessive-compulsive tendencies.

Uh, were not sure at this moment. It's that total # that sorta complicates the issue.

But right now it looks like 3 or 4 devices, and most will have multiple functions. The pencil is being pushed around on the paper with circles and arrows and some head scratching thrown in just to help fill in the mental picture a bit.

But since several of the devices need to be designed twice, once for the older and then again for the newer CanBus equipped bikes, it makes the count a bit more complicated.

I have a '99 R1100GS. It runs great, overall, but...

1. starting requires what feels like two complete revolutions (and always has, no matter state of tune, battery condition, etc.),

2. it "drags" a bit when moving off from a standstill (as you've mentioned above), and

3. most importantly, there is a very noticeable flat spot between 4,000 and 5,000 rpm

So...would I be wanting three separate devices to address each issue, and would it make sense to install each as they become available? I was imagining a set of devices that would best be installed and adjusted simultaneously, based on your comments about the interaction between them.

I'm as psyched as many others about this project...good on you two!

Good question. The several products can be installed as they become available, but they can also be installed in no particular order.

They'll work by themselves, or in combination with any other. Configuring any single device to work alone, or in combination, only takes a moment. Also, some will have user settings, to turn functions on or off for example.
