But hey, if things keep working out with the ICEE product line, maybe someday you'll
get your own museum, too, just like Enzo:




Gotta love La Vita...but to freeze dry Enzo and Juan! Hey in Italia it is about image and performance...sorta..

-20 Setting @ 32 degrees Ambient

Did a brief ride today to lead in a few riders from out of town. Unfortunately it was pavement and when I found them they were at warp speed coming the opposite direction. Impressions on the this limited ride. Well, nothing really significant to report at this point. Yes, it had long legs at high speeds and it seemed docile at low RPMs/slow speeds. Coming from the BP to the IICE Air set to -20 did not produce any differences on this short [100 miles] of mainly corner carving at speed on pavement. I expected that.

I do expect that once it warms up here, once the deep snow and mud wallows dry up and once I get over this F----- flu and I can go play in the dirt, often with high temps, that I will gain the flexibility to match my fuel/air for optimal slow speed dirt dancing and hopefully to gain smoother throttle control and lower engine temps with no 'rattle' under slow speed heavy uphill loads...

But hey...it started! Oddly it did one very short stumble about 60 secs after starting...that was not repeated. It has never stumbled before.

Getting the 'best' setting with the way my bike it setup and ridden will take some time. Very curious to see how ambient temps fold into this selection and changing of settings.

The booster plug and the IIce Air set to -20 are the same thing. There should be no difference and you've confirmed it.

True at -20, my seat of the pants impression was that they were the same...happily when I go out in 90-100 degrees in first and second gear over mountains of dirt and rock the adjustability of the IICE Air will win the day and make my riding sooooooo much smoother! Plus I hate hearing the boxer rattle on those spots where I can't carry speed and need that low RPM torque grunt under load to bail my butt out !

I be happy and await the Cool.

That's true Happy Wanderer.

The -20 setting on the IICE Air is the functional equivalent of the other competitive products. But there is an important thing to note. The Air is adjustable to -10C, and that enables it to work together with the upcoming products.

The Air and Cool work together optimally with the Air at the -10C setting. That's the primary reason the IICE Air is adjustable, so it works together with the IICE Cool.

The Cool improves the ECU control of Transient Throttle Enrichment. TTE is a fancy name, and is the electronic equivalent to an accelerator pump on a carburetor.

And of course the proverbial answer is, soon, soon.

I'm doing what I can to get these last 2.5 batches out so we can get rolling on the Cool and Smooth.

Assembly report.

Today is Tuesday, and I wasn't able to get this batch of 30 ready to ship today. But, I've cancelled my other duties this week in order to take care of some family matters going on. And there will be time in between to work on assembly. Friday, I'm shooting for Friday.

Here's a novel idea...

Stop wasting damn time doing "Marketing's" job... put the computer away and get the hell back to your little work space in the garage and buckle down young man! ...

Every time I see this thread up near the top of page 1 I think that maybe there's been a development in the new "upcoming" product line. Then, when I check to see what's up I find you dickin' off again! Come on man, get with the program. This constant stress and anxiety isn't good for a man in my condition.

Oh, and BTW, can I expect the same 3 week turnaround that I got when I ordered the IICE Air?
