Who let him (Poolside) out of the cage to post? He's supposed to be sniffing epoxy or some such.

Howdy Jim, JJ
Would like to know if one of these wunderwaffe is right for me.

Pinging is intermittent. Can be be severe at times and almost non-existent at other times at the same ambient, same route and load. Pinging, when it's severe, is usually accelerating on the freeway ramp or passing, above 4k rpm. Suspect a sticky barometric pressure sensor if that's possible because I notice it more right after dropping down from 2,000 ft to <500ft.
Other:
Recently had problems idle stalling at >7,000 ft which I never had before. Had to leave cold idle on to keep from stalling at high elevation.

Possible upgrades:
Have a clean set of Bing 144/113 w/ updated throttle wheel compatible with late style 1100 bowden throttle planned for install this winter. That will require the new style battery box. (JJ thanks for the link to the airhead throttle cable splitter). Have a 99 1100R Mo 2.2 which I could try also.

When riding >5k ft loaded in the summer I need to back the throttle, down to 4k to prevent heat build up, although I rarely notice severe pinging at elevation. Hoping that one of these products will solve the pinging problem under 2k ft and also allow temporary fuel enrichment under certain high ambient, high load,/high speed conditions. Would like to be able to switch from performance to economy mode while underway.

Decel pop has also been annoying and on-off throttle response seems to have worsened. Rubber manifolds have been replaced but haven't tried RTV on them yet. Considering new injectors and an adjustable fuel regulator. Thanks.
