Well if you have to ask you don't want to know…

Besides accounting ok'd it. And we both know what tight wads they can be.

And besides this way you have plausible deniablity.

Seriously though, thanks for the high praise, Geoff!

I ken tell yer new around these here parts. Mostly because you left us with
"I'm looking forward to my package........"

And if this were JM or one of it's subsidiaries this simply wouldn't be allowed to stand with out at least one comment.

But even so what with this being a technical forum and all, someone is bound to come up with a technical description to provide an adequate period at the end of that sentence.

I'm still recovering from the booze and service on my "package" at your expense , so I can imagine someone "looking forward to [his] package."

As for me, I'm looking forward to more blissful miles today on my IICE Air-equipped GSA. What a package!

55 miles to work without my IICE air and 55 miles back home later today. Will be doing this again tomorrow and Friday. I sure would like to put an engineering backed report on this thread of the before and after experience but that requires that I receive mine in the mail! I'll take one of your crappy early figuring out how to do the potting thing if it will get me one sooner.

It's an amazing product. Worth the wait.

Smoother throttle transitions is what you'll notice first. Notable on the pavement and VERY noticeable the first time you take your BIG PIG (or PIG if it's a GS) down an unpaved road. Plus smoother shifting and smoother running overall.

Don't want to oversell, but the IICE Air is a game-changer.

38,000 miles on a 2005 R1200RT. 26,000 miles on a 2009 GSA. 150 miles on the best running hexhead I've ever thrown a leg over.
That's what I wanted to hear, along with the Delivery Van Dude knocking on my door......

I was asked about my ongoing experiences on another thread.

IICE Air (001) continues to provide superior Fahrvergnügen. In fact, on Wednesday I was tempted to chase down the CHP officer who passed me riding an R1200RTP to tell him about it, then thought better of that stunt.

It's given me the performance uptick I was seeking with a cat-free Y-pipe, and then some.

Over the weekend I'll experiment with the -20/-10 offsets. Looks like it's smart to change from -20 to -10 somewhere in the 90s. When it gets too hot, -20 makes the bike feel "overcarbed" from 3-4k, although it still feels better than stock!

Yesterday, I tried IICE Air (002) @ -20 on my XCountry. Smaller difference off-road, BIG difference on asphalt and concrete! Makes it run like a stronger version of my SR500 with its Dell'Orto carb and White Bros/Supertrapp exhaust (which was tuned by the White Bros folks).

Ah, the mythical and elusive IICE air.

I sure wish that I could wrap my hands around a pair of those!

Contact Poolside for sales info. Or JohnJen with "marketing" questions.

I'm not a beta tester -- all technical questions have already been answered. There was only a question about wire length for various applications. I have the first two production units.
