I purchased the IICE Air and have a question. It is adjustable-this I like, adjustable is good.

Is there a basic train of thought for when you may typically adjust to a smaller temp offset versus a larger temp offset? I assume the ambient temp determines the general temp offset setting? So for example, I am riding in Arizona and the ambient temp is 101 f degrees. Would I lean toward a lower temp offset? Then the other example , I am riding in NY and the ambient temp is 45 f degrees, Would I lean toward a higher temp offset? Just looking for a ballpark recommendation.

Thanks for your time.

It adjustable like CamoGreg said above. A jumper setting under a pop top.

Or you can leave it in the middle setting all the time if you like. That is the same as the other non-adjustable products.

here are the simple directions or adjustment

Question, I ordered the air. I am running full flow akra exhaust, no cat. Would I adjust for more offset because of this compared to bike with full stock exhaust? 1150 dual spark.

And what is the symptom if too much offset is used? Can you notice this?

Thanks and get building! Riding season nearly here in northeast.

Care to define "really hot" and "really cold"?

My typical operating range used to be in Arizona, where it wasn't "really hot" until 105 F?

Can you suggest values for this (with my guesses for "really"):

Really Hot >= ? (90 F?)
Really Cold <= ? (32 F?)

I see what you mean, let me tighten up my definitions a little.

Really Hot = Summer
Really Cold = Winter

Before you throw tomatoes at me, let me explain.

I'm sure you understand the IICE Air is adjustable to one of 4 offsets. 0C, -10C, -20C, and -30C. And I'm guessing you understand that the air density over temperature curve isn't linear. The density/temperature curve is steeper at low densities, and shallower at high densities.

The four adjustments, zero and 3 negative offsets, allow a 'four point curve fit', so to speak. You can feel the difference between the settings, and one offset will feel better than the other two. You can also smell the difference between the settings. If the offset is right, the smallest whiff of fuel is evident in the exhaust. Acourse that's hard to determine when you're moving.

At what temperature to adjust the IICE Air offset isn't a complicated thing. It doesn't benefit from a 'retentive' focus, but I realize that a lot of people want to pore over it.

I maybe would start here? (The question mark is for real. Like I said, I don't think about it.)
-10C setting for ≥ 85F/29C
-20C setting for in between
-30C setting for ≤ 50F/10C

Or the simpler,
Really Hot = Summer = -10C offset
Rest of the time = -20C offset
Really Cold = Winter = -30C offset

I hope that covers it for you. If there is anyone born to pore over details, that person is me. And I don't spend any time thinking about it.

The post above should give you a frame of reference.

Total orders were 113. I did not expect that many! Thanks for getting on board everyone!

If you think that is good, wait until you can arrange for the international market! When the seat of the pants testimonials start rolling in, I think you'll have a hit on your hands.
