Bad A$$!

..was out of town all last week and couldn't wait to get home and install the IICE AIR. I installed it in about 5 mins and all I can say is the wait was definitely worth it! After riding my 04 GSA for 14k miles in a year since I bought it, I never imagined that big of a performance increase could've been had with something so simple to install. The smooth throttle response is unbelievable -
Thanks Poolside!!

You're welcome!

In a way, they did 'get it right'. What I mean is that BMW had to meet emissions requirements, and the bike runs the way it does primarily for that reason. But since you have an IICE Air, and are using the bike off road, you don't have to worry about it.

The new Wethead also has emissions-related drivability problems, though it isn't readily seen for what it is.

OK I spent a few hours readinig through the info and I definately think the ICEE-Cool will correct that hesitation problem from a low idle every time I rev up my 2008 BMW R1200GSA.

I have a few questions that are probably simple but I missed on the volumes of data on the other links:
1. How much does this affect gas mileage?
2. My bike is no longer under warranty but will this void anything just in case?
3. The ICEE-Air seems super easy to install, is there decent enough directions that come with the ICEE-Cool for me not to mess anything up?
4. WIll my BMW dealer refuse to work on it if I add your equipment?
5. I'd like to order both IICE-Air and IICE-Cool... how can I do so? Please PM me or email me at tommyholly@comcast.net or call at (708) 288-7717

I've tried to order this thing a couple times, and I keep getting this message from Paypal:
Quote:
The card you entered cannot be used for this payment. Please enter a different credit or debit card number.
This happened when I tried to order my Seat Concepts kit, too (I called Seat Concepts and was able to give them my CC # directly).
Does anybody here know why Paypal won't accept my Mastercard? I've used the same card for decades, never had a problem, have a high credit score, and don't have any other credit card to use (nor do I want one).

Did the expiration date change on your card? I think that happened to me once, and instead of being able to update the expiration date, I had to delete the card and re-enter it.

No, and I don't have an "account" with Paypal, but it said I could pay directly with the information.

Once Paypal decides they don't like your credit card you are hosed as far as merchants that use Paypal as a payment processor are concerned. There is no way to get Paypal to understand the problem let alone fix it.

I am really looking forward to getting an ICE-air.

Interesting, thanks.
I called my bank (USAA) and there was nothing wrong with my CC. They suggested I contact Paypal directly, which I (finally) did. Their site claims they'll answer my email within 24, and no more than 72, hours; we'll see.

#1 Not much either way, unless you get more (or less) enthusiastic with your right hand.
#2 No
#3 The instructions can be found in the 1st post of this thread.
#4 No. And you can remove the IICE air as easily as it is installed if you see the need. Or set it to the 0 setting (see the instructions in the 1st post).
#5 The IICE Air vendors thread has a link for ordering. The IICE Cool is not available.

Thanks johnjen,
Do you know when the IICE-Cool will be available again or was it ever?

TommyHolly and smithdt, here are a couple of recent posts addressing performance and MPG with the IICE Air:

It is possible also that my bike drinks a half a liter less every hundred kilometers, but I cannot state this for sure. For sure, I'm waiting the Cool!

Ah, one more: installing it requires more time to choose where to place and how the Air, because of the lack of an appropriate space in the frame, than the time needed to unscrew the six screws and unplug the sensor and set again everything.
My best compliments, Poolside, and thanks for the time you devoted to develop that idea.

Very happy, very impressed
Others have reported similar results. But it's also like JJ says, a bike's MPG is primarily based on how enthusiastic you get with the throttle. It varies within a range. Very much like the answers you get when you ask how many miles people get from a set of tires.

Some people ride in a higher gear with the IICE Air fitted, and that can improve mileage.

Jim/Poolside, is there any possible way for me to purchase an IICE Air via personal check, cashier's check, or calling you directly with my credit card number?
As I mentioned a few posts above, Paypal simply will not accept my CC, for no known reason.
You can PM me here or contact me at botchbuy@comcast.net . Thanks!
