i have to agree with you there, with regards to power... but i am talking about overall smoothness of engine operation. *Especially* right off idle, where a non-plugged bike can be very tricky to manage in slow going. In general, the engine just feels like it runs better.

That full HPN Akra is especially nice when flogging the bike. My only problem is that now I am afraid to ride in big rocks out of concern for flattening very expensive headers!!!

Losper can you comment on the install. I just got the plug and it looks like it will be a very tight fit between the plug and the tank. Did you have to lift the tank to get it on?

Yes, just lift the tank a bit. Mount the sensor as front as it gets, away from the engine heat.

The jerky throttle

Well i reckon the stop start of the jerky throttle is absolutly pathetic, it makes a great bike terrible to ride slow. So if this booster plug or anything else can get rid of the jerky throttle i will be stoked.
Imagine riding over really crap tracks fast on a big bike, its an awesome feeling . The only thing that makes u not smooth is the throttle.
Re the akra from hpn, it sounds awesome and reminds cars and bikes that u are there, it also looks the goods.
Just a footnote.......as my asian trip comes to an end and i chill in bali , i can only reccomend to my fellow riders, asia is a test of endurance more than skill. Your bmw is really to big for indonesia and the throttle makes navigation through the dense traffic more than a pain in the ass.
However its all part of the story.

I've never had a complaint about the throttle, and I've ridden it in plenty of rocky areas that required slow going. I wonder if something is off with your bike ...?

Good luck getting it sorted.

Sounds like my place

Well, if you have a taste for Chateauneuf du Pape
and some scenic Offroad day trips in the Provence/France area I can recommend my place for a meeting.
Maybe in April/May, when temperatures are pleasant and tourists still far away at work ??


Best Regards

Mike I just installed the booster plug and it works great. Noticeable and significant improvement in the throttle response. My bike has always run lean since I have the akra on it but with the booster plug no more choppy on/off feeling. It really works. Only took 30 minutesd to install. Kinda tight under the tank so you have to remove the rear tank bolt and lift the tank a little to get the plug on but other than that it is simple.
