Hi,
Not sure if you are ordering from us (Beemerboneyard) or not but yes, USPS Express Mail normal 1lb rate is $57. Express is the fastest most expensive method. If you select USPS Priority Mail it would come out to $42.95. Express takes 3-5 days and Priority takes 7-12 days. If you select Priority Mail we can use a small flat rate box and lower the cost to $30. Just put a note in the comments sewction of the order form mentioning this and we'll refund you the difference once the order goes through.
Mike

It must be something special for NZ. Being from Denmark, I am accustomed to send items over the atlantic, and a 1 pound box to DK goes for around $15...... so $60 to NZ is crazy.... But never the less correct, as I checked USPS, it came out to $57. How ever when you use small flat rate priority mail box, it came out to just under $24.....

So if you can get them to honor the Priority shipping box, then you will be better of, unless they mark it up.

As I posted above we can use the small flat rate box It is $23.95 plus insurance so it totals out around $27. The $30 was an estimate without looking up the exact insurance costs. Just mention it in the comments section on the order form and we'll be happy to refund the difference.

And Mike's good for it.
He corrected my shipping without me even realizing there were better options. I'm sure that he'll get the best rate possible for you.

Another update....
Part of me wants to try setting #9, as to move closer to an AFR of 13.2, but the thing that makes me rethink it, is the fact that everything 50% throttle, and below, is on par with the DJ boxes. Power....response, is exactly the same. That is actually quite good. Great. But that tells me the setting, at least in theory, is dialed in at about 13.8 ( setting #8) and does not need to change. Where the DJ had its advantage is that it kept 13.8 ( or at least it was told to keep 13.8) (weather or not it was in fact a true 13.8, or not, I dont know, but I suspect it was a bit richer than that) through out, and the BMSK, has not fully adapted out. I know I can just try #9, but as it runs on par with the DJ on setting # 8, I don't see a reason to change the AFR. You can perhaps argue when the BMSK switches from closed to open fueling, but those arguments are based on BMSK logic, and a value from the O2 sensor. It would be great with a light that went on as it switched from closed to open..... but as there are no such thing, I have concluded that in general terms, the BMSK is in closed loop at steady state cruising, but as you accelerates hard, it switches to open loop. I am at the point, I can hear a tone change in the exhaust, as I go above 50% throttle ( give or take a few%) and as the engine rolls through the small, and I mean small dead spots, I can hear the less snappy crisp tone that I hear under 50% during what I suspect is closed loop. That is terms leads me back to the fact that setting # 8 is spot on, and it is the open loop, I want to change. All the above assumptions are purely based on my idiot mind, and observations. I have no GS-911, to substantiate anything, but over the years of tuning bikes, I have a fairly good track record. I would sure love to put it on a dyno, and really see what the AFR is, just for kicks, and see if that 50% mark that I speak of is coexisting with an increase of the AFR, as a result of lag of adaptation values in open loop mode. All that said, I really like this thing, and it is staying on, hands down.
