Perfect timing for the pic above!!!

Finally got back into town and had a few minutes to install it.

Of course, the pictures above didn't do a lot of good for the 13 and newer bikes, the connectors are located a bit differently, and because of the plastic bits around the charcoal cannister, the included length of wire ended up being about 2 inches too short to get it under the air cleaner cover, so, with the help of my 11 year old son, we figured out where to mount it up and it ended up being a nice clean install.

What's REALLY cool is that BMW knew that this AF-XIED was coming and put a mounting clip right below the existing O2 Sensor connector mounts. Looks like a factory install!!



We decided to go under the seat like someone did on here earlier, real clean as well. No zip ties were needed for any of this. The 11 year old's hands came in really handy to get into the connectors since I had a remote reservoir in the way.

Is the border to Canada closed for deliveries from US?

The borders are open and we can ship stuff no problem. The issue is the extra fees from brokerage and duties that take a decently priced part and considerably increase the cost when ordering from online stores.

We got the same issue when ordering from Sweden. I paid approx. 25USD to get it through the customs.

USPS/Canada Post

TYC

Insist on shipping via USPS/Canada Post. In my experience buying numerous accessories for three bikes Canada Post did not collect HST nor levy any brokerage fees for anything under about $300. It's the courier companies that charge the usurious fees.

Under the Canada US free trade agreement automotive parts manufactured in either country are exempt. There might be GST tax but that should be it.

This is the last of 7 posts on dyno testing.

Here is a link to some dyno info on an R1200GS. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...9#post23512119. I'm posting this here because the 7 posts on dyno methodology is relevant to all bmsk controlled bikes.

Here is the before/after performance table from the report. Enjoy!

Just ordered mine! Can't wait.

I've read to keep the booster plug connected, should I? It didn't seem to do much.

My mods are, drilled airbox, BMC air filter, Leo V exhaust, maybe headers later.

It won't do any harm, I left mine on. It will either be adapted to the point it is not doing anything or maybe it will augment the AF-XiED.

Reall not an issue with buing from us (Beemerboneard) as we use USPS so no brokerage fees. ou do have GST but you pay that on everything, imported or not, correct? Priorit Mail is around $30-$35 but we can use a small flat rate box and lower that to around $25, just mention it when ordering.

After following this thread since the start, I ordered one of these today. Looking forward to trying it out. I'm also running an HTC controller so we'll see how it goes.
