I hear you guys. 

I'm sorting out the details of the waterproof and accessible enclosure. It isn't an off-the-shelf part, there are modifications. I'm working out something that's reasonable to manufacture.

JJ and I thought this was going to be a fun little thread about how fuel injection works and so on. Neither of us were expecting the response. If I could get these ready for holiday gift giving you know I would!

I'm on track to get a thread started in Vendors by this time next week or sooner. In there will be the release dates and pricing.

Is that right?

Call me paranoid, but I'm an engineer and have seen how easily little design flaws in electronics or software bugs can trigger bizarre and completely unanticipated behaviour. That's one advantage large organizations like BMW have over one or two person enterprises - they have teams of people dedicated to all the detailed code reviews, fault testing, and validation that are required to ensure product safety... and even then problems can still crop up - can you say Toyota?
Like Disco Dean said, the R1200 uses the traditional manual cable-operated throttle. Seriously though, you really couldn't tell just by looking?

History shows that small teams or individuals develop superior code. You want something fcuked up, let a committee design it.

Nope, couldn't tell just by looking - obviously not a mechanical engineer, or bike mechanic.

As for the rest of my post I wasn't trying to criticize your abilities, or knock small teams in general - sorry if it came across that way. Simple fact is no one writes 100% flawless code 100% of the time and as good as small teams can be at developing great stuff, the more complicated a project is, the more chance for errors. And that's where testing and validation by additional people, independent of the developer(s) is a good thing. That's a far cry from designing by committee.

That aside, if what you're developing is inherently safe because it can't interfere with the basic functioning of the ECU, then I'm happy to hear you explain more about that. Of course if you feel that'll disclose too much, I can respect that too.

Peace.

Have faith

Obviously messers Poolside & al have more than an inkling about fuelinjection
Boosterplugs and other sundry gear gets sold by the ton and everyone smiles no major questions asked.
They're just going to rub the ECU the right way, not make a new one.
Maybe Steve J. has a spot for an ECU manipulator app
just SMS your bike and be sure to keep that frontwheel on the ground!

Pretty sure Boosterplug is a static/non-adjustable version of product #1 Poolside is building (I think this has been discussed thorughout the thread).

Poolside's "boosterplug" will be adjustable and coordinate with 3 additional products.

That is patently false. Anecdotes do not a paradigm make.
