Great questions.... see my response in Orange...

The factory Temperature sensor is not linear.... you cant just add a static resistor to get the needed temperature offset across a broad range of say 32 deg f to 120 deg F.

  2. Taking the above question a step further, would it make sense to make a controller that constantly varied the differential temperature adjustment based on the outside air temp versus having just two static manual settings? The Power Controller is two different dynamic setting -not static. Thats why there is a external probe.
  3. How do we go about ordering these? Send me a PM or paypay to Wukaking (at) gmail.com 85 plus 5 for shipping!

Thanks,

Steve

Actually that was three questions and not two wasn't it??? You can tell I won't be participating in the "engineering debates" on this product as I can't even count to three!!! :)

Paypal will be on its way shortly.

Thanks!

It Works!

I bought my 800gs back in June, a 2009 model with just 1000 miles on the bike. When I was riding on the street, the bike ran about as well as the last few fuel injected bikes I'd owned. When I got to slow first and second gear trails the bike became hard to ride. The throttle seemed to be a lightswitch in first gear. If I hit a bump in the road, the movement of my hand would bring on a lurch that would upset the bike. It was very difficult to ride smoothly in first gear on rough terrain.

I've taken two rides since I installed the Power Controller and I'm very happy with the results. The on and off throttle transition is much smoother now. I'm much happier with the bike and feel that the Power Commander was money well spent. Thank you HTCA!

Got it and popped it in this weekend. I wasn't able to ride much until today and I'm very pleased. The bike runs smoother throughout all RPMs and is super smooth on the highway now. I don't know if it was my bike specifically but when I was in 6th gear going 70-80mph there was a small but noticeable lurch every 6-10 seconds. Nothing violent but very annoying as it was noticeable. That's gone now and rolling on and off the throttle is much nicer now as well.

The last right turn into my office is a brick driveway that is usually wet and slippery. I have to slow way down and once I enter the turn I usually roll on the throttle and get jerked quite a bit. This morning my body was in defensive posture leaning forward and I rolled on the throttle and no jerk.

Thanks HTCA, well done!

Super easy install, and does all as advertised. It's 98 degrees here every day unless it's 100. It has changed the bike completely, thanks for all your efforts in getting it here.
If anyone's sitting on the fence, jump off and PayPal today, well worth the "reddies"

Got my power controller last week. Super easy install, takes longer to remove the plastic than to install the device. Sixty mile on road test ride last weekend, 65 degrees outside, switch on blue side. Noticeable results over stock, much smoother and stronger acceleration. Bike felt more 'normal' meaning you can get used to the snattchiness of the 800 throttle and forget how it ought to be. Feels and runs great.

Just to be sure I wasn't imagining the results, did a bike swap with a buddy of mine. He also has an 09 f800. We went on a 15 mile test ride, surface streets and freeway, swapped bikes half way. Fifty-two degrees outside temp. Told my buddy I did something to my bike but wasn't specific, wanted his impressions. His stock bike was rougher, just like I remembered, and after the ride he said he could tell that something was different, that my bike was smoother and a little quicker on acceleration. He has one on order.

Can't wait to try it out on the 1200GS.

Well done product.
