One Happy Customer!

Just a quick note about my experience with the power controller. After “up” grading to an ’09 F800GS due to my well sorted F650GS being taken out by a learner driver while parked, I really have been struggling to come to grips with this throttle problem.

The difference between idle and a good wack of throttle was about 2mm of grip movement and no amount of cable adjustment and fiddling helped. Even small bumps in the road were enough to launch forward and no matter how much I tried there was no way to keep smooth in traffic – riding over corrugations would have been funny to watch if it hadn’t been me... The 800’s previous owner had spent a ton of cash farkling it up and when I was buying it I couldn’t figure out why he sold it at such a great loss, after riding it for a while I’m pretty sure I found the reason.

After a bit of research I came across the power controller and have to admit I was a bit sceptical at first, cautious that something quite simple and very modestly priced could solve all my problems. Well it arrived today and 40 minutes later I was out and about grinning like a mad man! The difference is night and day, black and white, the difference is between selling the F800 and buying something else and keeping it! Thanks Coonass, you saved me a fortune…

Thanks Mate! It is feeedback like yours that keeps us going... knowing that people appreciate our work here! I have a great job and don't need the cash to survive, but it gives my 2 sons some good life lessons here on how to run a business... Its a lot of work for me to keep on there ass to stay up with the build quality, inventory and make sure the orders ship the same day.

And if anyone (the original purchaser) is ever un-happy with the product I will take it back at anytime... and I warranty if forever! As long as I am still around doing the builds... if it fails send it to me I will send you a brand new one!

Question

Ordered one (Juice), shipped within a few hours, and arrived few days after, nice!
Have yet to try (this weekend), but I am wondering where to put the external sensor. Personally I think in the airbox would be best (that's why the BMW sensor lives there imho), anyone can comment about the preferred location for the sensor?
Thanks a lot.

Living in colder altitudes of Colorado I normally run it switched to blue or colder setting. Seldom use it in the red position unless it's really warm.

I live in Crete, Greece. The climate is Mediterranean and the temperature seldom falls more than 0 degrees Celcius (32F).

So, which of the two options is better for me? I guess Juice should be ok.

Thank you.

Mike, For Crete the "Juice" will work fine.

BTW - the Cold air is not the concern it is the Hot weather ( long days above 85 deg f) where the "Power Controller" is the better option.

go here to order... Thanks http://wukaking.com

As I live in the province of Quebec, Canada, temperature over 85F is not a big concern. Only a handful of thoses days. For this reason I know the ''JUICE'' is the right option. But I'm wondering what are the consequenses If I take a couple day ride down south in the middle of summer with temp over 85. If I dont have the ''controller'' will it be harmful for the engine? or is the worst I can expect is only a little loss of power ?

Running the Juice above 85 you will be fine. It is very difficult to calculate the effect above 85F since the Juice (and the Power Controller) only enriches on the changes in the throttle position. I have used my F800gs on very hot days on the blue setting -20) with no ill effects. One thing we do know is that an engine will run cooler with a little more fuel...
also we do know the air density changes as the heat increases... so the idea of the switch on the Power Controller allows us techies to pull back on the enrichment as the air temp increases.

Thanks!
