Laugh lots and lots of more happy people....

Try one you will like it.... booster plug, accelerator, they all make a world of difference in the ride ability of an 800cc dirt bike when you are on the technical stuff!

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.

I just received mine for the F800GS and it works great.

HTC, I have other things laying in the area between the air box and battery where you indicate to lay the circuit board so I just laid mine across the top of the battery and it could get wet while riding in the rain. Is this an issue? You can see the white end of the circuit board just to the right of the top of my fork tube. It is still under the faux tank cover. If this is an issue please let me know and I will see what I can do to resolve.

as soon as i find a waterproof switch i like i will e-mail you the link and if you say it will work i will buy it and send it to you so you can incorporate it into my PC. i am looking for a different mounting option then under the seat or on the frame as you have done.

I installed my Accelerator today on my 2012 F800GS, i hope to enjoy it as much as on my R1150GSA. For the few 100kms i rode today it looks to be much better in the low RPM and for the on/off "issue". We'll see with the many rides to come

Quick question:

What sort of temperature range are you experiencing the "twitchy throttle" issue at?

It may be because I do so much with a pillion and gear off road, but I really haven't noticed it.

Question

any temperature....

I first noticed my bike bucking when i would ride my favorite training road - a deep gravel road near my house (one up - un-loaded). It has lots of deep holes after a rain. When I was standing on the pegs I felt like I was going to go over the bars when I left off the gas - and fall off the back when I gave it the juice. I had a F650GS single DAKAR and an R1150GS before the F800GS. Those weren't as jumpy when you left off the gas..... Someone riding a 450F or a big dirt bike may not notice the lean tuned jumpiness of the F800gs....


My bike was one of the First F800GS to hit the states.... a 6 month pre-order....
When I posted my feeling on the issue some one wrote the clutch is your friend....No I don't think so.

So I went digging for a solution in the European Fourms..... and resistance tuning was the fix....but they were lacking a way to make adjustments for air density changes when the air temperature got warmer...
