Poolsides unit....IICE to Power Controller Comparison....

we both provide a the -10 and -20 deg offset - is the same as the Power Controller.

IICE.....
PROS... 4 positions "normal / -10 deg c / -20 deg c / -30 deg C" offsets
(normal / -30 not needed IMO -Poolside is doing more mods (o2 and throttle sensor) later that may require these settings from what I read)

CONS....
no external temperature probe , plastic housing will not last, jumpers are a PITA, if you dont like it... tough luck! no returns!


Power Controller...
Pros... on the fly switchable , built to last, external temperature probe to get the most accurate offset that is needed for it to work best.

....on the OEM plugs I now use a heat shrink with "hot glue" in the inside. Saves lot of time instead of wrapping in Rescue tape (silicone tape). Remember the plugs are allready "waterproof" rated. just going the extra mile....

also a note the epoxy sealed electronics are a little smaller now...

Still wondering if anyone has run both yet? As Yeti mentioned, I also get temps routinely over 85*, and very cool fall temps. This sounds good, but I have a Booster Plug already. Someone convince me this is better and what I'm looking for.

The only way to know for sure is to put the bike on a dyno and check the enrichment at the different ambient air temperatures.

You just have to ride and see the difference.... The science (air density tables) tell us that the enrichment above 85 is not needed....and the bikes work well above 85 switched in -18 ... still smooth.


There are a few of us doing the EXACT same enrichment methods... but I have a little less when hot and i still works so we call it good!


If you swap from a booster to a Power Controller I do think you will notice a difference... but the science tell us that it is so over compensation... and that level of enrichment is not needed... but it wont cause any problems that anyone is aware off.

Laugh ideas for mounting the switch...

ideas....switch mounting... here shown is a short piece of copper plumbers strapping...the hole matches the switch mounting... notice i put some black tape on the frame on the bike. I passed a tyrap thru the holes and strapped to the back-side of the frame...hidden and out of the way on the left side on the bike....

would be interested to hear if there are any folks with the 650 twin using it and what their thoughts are. Mine felt quite twitchy for the first 20,000km or so but I'm at 57,000 now and it seems a lot smoother. plus I've changed to the same sprockets as the 800, but that should actually make it more twitchy in theory but to me it's just more useable torque off-road in 2nd gear. 1st gear is the real issue.

I have a 650, with 27k miles and oem sprockets. I would say most but not all of the twitch is resolved by the power controller. But the other half of the reason I bought the thing was to deal with the weird flat spot in the mid-3000 rpm range during hard acceleration. With the controller there isn't any hesitation, it just goes.

put mine on last night and took it for a quick spin around the block (would have went further, but it was 30 degrees) and the jerky throttle is deffinatly a LOT better, cant wait to hit the trails.

HTCA: two things:

One, you might want to bag the small parts before boxing and shipping, when I got the box, the zip tie was hanging out and the colored tape spots were missing. no big deal, I have a lot of colored electrical tape.

Two, I should have asked for a second sticker, I gatta keep it symmetrical!

I've had mine on for just over a week and a half now. I've done a few rides and one on dirt. I'm very happy with the improvement! Thanks HTCA

I haven't noticed any real change in fuel consumption either.

Richard,

Just sent you funds for one via Paypal for my F8GS. Wife probably wants one too at a later point for her 650GS.
