Advice on Booster Plug

I have heard a lot of positive comments on installing a Booster Plug.

I have a 2008 K1300GT.

I have reasonable mechanic experience and skills.

Is this a job I can do myself? How difficult is the install? Anything to be particularly careful of during install?

Any preference where to purchase?
This site:
http://www.advdesigns.com/boplfumabmwk1.html
$160

This site calls it Accelerator Module - but I believe it is the same thing:
http://www.sol2.be/Performance/ENG/Order/page_BMW.html
60Euros or about $65
Big price difference

Are there other sites you would recommend?


Any advice anyone can give is greatly appreciated.
Thanks!
Chris

Re: Advice on Booster Plug

I have the accelerator module and works fine. And you can install it. Run your bike gas level down to make it easier to remove the tank. So all that is needed is to get that tank off and the intake air temp gauge is on the lower right side of the air box. You may want to remove a hose that is between you and the connector you want to unplug. Insert your device connectors and run the temperature probe somewhere. Some make a hole in the air box but I have run mine along the bottom of the right hand intake tube and tie wrapped it there. You can see on a GS911 that the reading is dropped by 20*C. This is only used when the bike is looking at sensors for fuel mapping. Once it swaps over to internal fuel map there is not influence. My bike used to stall once and a while now seldom if ever. A buddies was almost not possible to ride it stalled so often and was a bear around town. It cured that and made a huge difference in some other fuel issues.

I just installed a booster plug in my '09, putting it back together right now.

You have to remove most of the fairing plastic to get at the tank.

There are a lot of screws holding all the plastic together; get a tray or a lot of small cups to keep them organized as you pull them off.
