Feel good to be one of just a bit over a hundred riders in the world to be getting this product. Optimistic it will work well and the $$ was no big deal as I piss more than that away going out for dinner. I'm certain it won't hurt my performance. With my akra pipe it feels like it's sucking wind when I jab the throttle. I can hear it sounding lean. Very hopeful that this gizmo will fix that and give the bike more snap and a Braaat like sound when I grab a handful instead of the sucking sound.

I have spent my whole life trying to escape the sucking sound.

Maybe I missed it, but why spend so much effort to produce a product only to discontinue it after 100 sales when there is a much bigger potential market?

It will definitely improve the situation. It works the same as the other products out there, except it's adjustable. With the full aftermarket exhaust you're running, the -30°C offset adjustment position should work better.

Can't wait to try it. I'm running a wrapped Remus header with a modified (lower restriction) Micron ti can.

I missed out too it seems... Are these first 100 units like a beta test and those of us who missed out will just have to wait or are we S.O.L. and that just the way it is?

If any of you cats that happened to have purchased more than one are interested in selling an extra, shoot this late-comer a PM.

Poolside, can you give me the specs on the IICE Air jumper header?
0.01" pins on 0.10" spacing?

Where I live I can transition from 100F to 25F within a half hour. I'd like to look into attaching a fast switch over setup to accommodate an easy change over as temps shift.

The pins are 0.025" square, on 0.100" spacing. Physically the same as those on a typical jumper.
There are 5 pins, arranged in a pattern like the dots on the '5' face of a die or domino.

Excellent marketing campaign !

1. Start a thread on advrider.com with intrigueing name;
2. Provocate the discussion and reveal some details - word-of-mouth spreads;
3. In due time (when the topic is hot and everybody is almost pissed-off) come up with a GOOD NEWS - product is ready !
4. Promise the next stage in development / supplement product sometime in the future;
5. Start accepting LIMITED orders;
6. Limit the geographical availability (no-go for Europe);
7. Create a feeling of limited availability and product deficit (steps 5 and 6);
8. Get the customers queueing and impatiently waiting for the spectacular product;
9. Get a public fight with some honest customer, reject the sale to him to increase the feeling of product deficit;
10. Get very positive opinions from user-trials, no dyno testing;
11. Keep limiting the supply, to keep 200% margin on sale.
12. Become a MILLIONAIRE !

Well done Poolside and JJ ! Respect

Why don't the rules apply to everyone? It appears this thread should have been punted to Vendors a while ago......
Hey there BP.

This is a product development and technical thread. For hundreds of pages we've been talking about how a modern fuel injection ECU works, how the device works with the ECU, and what it does to make your bike run better. Heck, we even spent more than a few pages on the meaning of the term 'Hotrodding'. Nothing could be more bike related.

There is also a companion thread in the Vendor forum for sales. But some folks post sales-related questions in here, and technical questions in the Vendors thread. So as you can imagine, there is some unavoidable bleed over.
