Hey there folks. I had a little recreation planned for this 3-day weekend, but instead I'm honoring our Veterans by hanging out in the shop building IICE Airs. But don't cry for me Argentina, all things considered this was the better choice, (besides I'll feel better in the morning.)

I'll post up a progress report a little later, and an estimated ship date for this batch of 30.

Tallyho!



Thank you for your orders everyone! JJ and I appreciate it!

So what happens if I'm out riding and I decide to adjust the ICEE Air and I loose the jumper? Will the bike run to get home?

Just tighten it to the proper torque, and it won't come loose.

Well, I don't have to worry about losing the jumper . I don't know where the damn thing is.

If you lose the jumper there are 3 options
Run the bike in 'limp home mode' until you get another jumper.
or
Bend one of the outside jumpers (I'd do the 0 offset jumper myself) into the center jumper so that they touch. (which is functionally the same as the next option) Then push it out of the way when you get another jumper.
or
Unplug the IICE Air and run the stock air temp sensor until you get another jumper.

I like option 4, bring a spare jumper.

I have put about 250 miles on the ICEE Air over the last few days. Ambient temps ranging from 22-65 degrees Fahrenheit. I've been messing around with the jumper and realized that the little booger could get lost when removing and replacing it. I'm putting together a subjective, seat of the pants, no dyno, no variable control, and no scientific method used review and will post it tomorrow after work. I can hardly wait!

Does it take tools? They don't let me have tools. Maybe I could use a stick.

JJ and I both thought that bending the pins was a possible option if for some reason the jumper gets away from you. But yesterday I tried bending the pins together, just to see what would happen. Here's what I discovered...

DO NOT PURPOSELY BEND THE JUMPER PINS, for a couple of reasons.

First, it doesn't work. You can bend the two pins together until they touch, but as soon as you let go of the pins they'll spring apart a little. They will not remain in contact because of that 'springback'.

Second, the pins cannot be bent back straight, there will be a little 'waviness' to the pin from being bent and straightened. In addition, the spacing between the pins must be fairly exact. Because of those two things the jumper may not make good contact.

The third point is sort of moot. If you do not use smooth jaw pliers, the surface of the pins will be damaged and will subsequently damage the jumper. But you're not supposed to be bending the pins in the first place.

I suppose there's a good thing in the mix. If you bend the pins you'll have to buy another IICE Air. Marketing will like that.

What to do if you lose the jumper...

If you happen to lose the jumper, and don't know what to do, any of these things below will work as a temporary solution. I'm thinking it would be best to start at the top.

1. BE PROACTIVE! Get some jumpers from your IT Department at work, and keep them on the bike. NOTE: The jumper that comes with the IICE Air has a little tab on it to make it easier to hold. The jumper you get from IT or Radio Shack will probably not have the tab, it will work fine.

2. Just ride the bike home without the jumper. Or ride to Radio Shack or a computer store and get some jumpers.

3. Reconnect the Intake Air Temperature sensor.

4. Just leave the IICE Air adjusted to the -20 setting. It works great at the -20 setting. It leaves here set to -20. And really, the primary reason for the adjustment in the first place was so that it will work with the upcoming IICE Cool. The IICE Air needs to be set to -10 to work with the future IICE Cool product.

5. Tie a short piece of fishing line or unwaxed dental floss unwaxed to the jumper as a sort of leash. Did I mention to use unwaxed dental floss? Do not use waxed dental floss, the wax will contaminate the pins. If you try the leash method, be sure the leash isn't trapped under the cap seal when you snap the lid closed.

6. Someone shared the idea to make a temporary jumper out of tin foil. It might be tricky to get the foil in there and only contact 2 pins, but it would work, and there's no reason not to try. But really, for the best solution try to stay near the top of the list.

Yes it will. And see the above 2 posts for more ideas.

Go figure Marketing suggested bending the pins.

Oh no, I did not mean to imply, or even hint at anything. Just making a little joke.
I put a smiley in there and everything.

Seriously, we both thought bending the pins seemed viable, until I tried it that is.
