Feedback on AF-XIED insalled on K1300GT

Just had my first ride on the af-xied device I installed on my 10,000 miles old 2009 k1300 gt. Bought it @ beemerboneyard ($210) this winter and installed it myself. Thanks to kmac 33 (Nov. 22,2013) & his tips it went great. On the 1300 gt it's possible to mount the device right under the rear heated seat (electrical putty to hold it in place) just down & forward of the diagnostic plug. I used a convenient bolt in the immeadiate area for a ground connection. I also used the "8" setting giving me a 6% richer than stock mixture. Guess what! (no stalling) roll-on accelleration hesitation is gone. It's much smoother and far more responsive. Hold on, it's very surprising! Other benefit is you can run in 6th @ a low speed and accellerate out of it with a smooth progessive accelleration. I'm quite impressed!

Re: Feedback on AF-XIED insalled on K1300GT

Ghagen, I can help you. First buy the af-xied from mike @beemerboneyard. Take your front &rear seat off. You can mount the device right under the passenger seat. Hold it in place just down from the diagnostic plug with electrical putty which is moldable like play putty. Find the O2 sensor coming up @the muffler turn on the right side about 8" inboard of the right footpeg. Follow up to where the O2 plugs into the wiring junction going forward. Unplug the male/female (be careful and delicate when releasing. Plug the af-xied into the unplugged O2 sensor lead. Then plug the male of the O2 sensor male into the top of the af-xied (which is a female ). Now you'll find another wire with a ring connector on the end. That'a a ground which you can install under an existing bolt right in that area. The instructions that come with the device are simple and accurate. It's shipped @ the 7 setting (4% richer). I bumped it up to 8 ( use a jewelers screwdriver one tiny mark clockwise & you are 6% richer than stock. It's a huge improvement. No stalling, no hesitation, completely different animal. Wonderful. Let me know if you get stuck. It' s not hard. Robert Mahler

Re: Feedback on AF-XIED insalled on K1300GT

Too early for me to tell yet as I've only riden about 80 miles so far since the install. Started out the beginning of the seasson 2 weeks ago with a tankful of 93 octane non-ethanol gas with 3 1/2 ounces of techtron additive. Tank was full up to bottom of the orange insert (don't fill any higher). I'll get back to you on the average after the first fill-up. Ran it real hard and got real thrills, now I'm running moderately and no stalling. All others have posted that either the mileage stayed the same ( because you can lower in sixth gear or it went down slightly.
I'll let you know @ my next fill-up. I did the install primarily to alleviate the stalling but got the bonus of no lean
burning characteristics and a hell of a performance boost. Hard to believe you can get both! robert

Re: Feedback on AF-XIED insalled on K1300GT

It's magic. No more hesitation, stalling or the high revving at idle with a hot engine that I was experiencing. On top of that, my gas mileage has gone up, due to riding in a higher gear. Great product.

Re: Feedback on AF-XIED insalled on K1300GT

gbagen, Glad to hear it worked out for you. I too had a great experience! Now that there's no stalling I'll after a couple tankfuls on the k1300 gt try weaning off the "pure" gas to follow through with the trial and error. Been using 91 octane no- ethanol "pure" gas. Gonna try 93 octane "normal" gas hoping it only contains 10% ethanol. When the Micelin Pilot Road Two tires (on there when I bought it last year) are worn out I'm getting the Road 4's. Happy Touring!

Re: Feedback on AF-XIED insalled on K1300GT

That's terrific. What setting are you on, "7" or "8"? Im currently on "8" but suspect I'm gonna get about 41 - 43.
Still very pleased but wan't to see if I can go back to 93 octane with 10% ethanol. What are you fueling with? Scott

Re: Feedback on AF-XIED insalled on K1300GT

Does anyone have an unobstructed view of install instructions? OEM ? I like plug and play and have an interest. I do not like cutting factory wire harnesses and it looks like this model has factory connectors.
Thanks

While I love all that it has done for my bike, I do still get an occasional stall as I roll up to a stop.

Try eight clicks (8 blinks as you turn on the key).

It comes at 7, and that was great, but at the advice of another member (can'T remember who) I tried 8 and it was even better.

The manual that came with it has details. Turn the potentiometer until you get 8 LED flashes with key on. Its one click from the stock setting but I do not recall if it is CW or CCW.

Yep, unfortunately that is a hard thing to fix. I think ours doesn't stall as much due to me learning to slowly roll back to idle as much as anything else. Techron, Af-iXed, cursing, all seem to have some good impact but not a complete cure.

Re: Feedback on AF-XIED insalled on K1300GT

I put the XIED on my K1300GT and it makes a world of difference. No more jerky quirky starts and the hesitation in gone. I am running at 7.

I am still trying to figure out how you guys are getting 40 mpg!! I am lucky to get close to 40!! Are you guys riding your bikes like a Goldwing or what? I know I treat mine more like a RR then a LT!!!

I am curious how this performs vs the Booster Plug on my K1200GT?

Hi Robert,

Did you need a harness extension for the K1300GT, and can it be fitted without removing the tank?

Regards,
Phil Lowney.

Hi gbagen,

I don't know if you've addressed the ubiquitous hot stalling issue, or if this helps, I had it cured by the fitting of additional ignition ground wire - apparently the standard fitted wire gets hot which creates a resistance. It worked a treat - no more hot stalling and the dealer did it free of charge.

Re: Feedback on AF-XIED insalled on K1300GT

Responding to PHIL160UK:
I don't have the hot stalling issue problem. I am aware of the fitting of the additional ignition ground wire. I'll install it if it later becomes necessary. Thanks ' mate for the heads-up. For now I'm enjoying The AF- XIED addition. I had the frequent stalling issue prior to the AF. I later had the right side handlebar start button failure problem. ( wouldn't start if left in the sun)Was cured by a new start switch (latest bmw production line part number ends in 174 (the last 3 digits). Didn't want the ones sitting on the shelf that were replacements for prior failures.

Hi Robert,

Likewise thanks for the feedback regarding the O2 Sensor Manipulator and the warning and part number for the Start Button - useful to know.

Best Regards,

I bought the AF-XiED have not installed it yet.

Could you elaborate on the ground ignition wire? Where does it go? I want it do it also...

I had the hot stalling issue that many have reported, at traffic lights, or in slow moving traffic, on a hot day. Bike wouldn't start for about a minute. The dealer told me that the ignition ground wire gets hot and this produces a resistance. They said that they had fitted and additional ignition ground wire to cure the problem. They didn't say where or how. I'm sure someone on here can elaborate on the location and procedure to carry out this fix. I just thought (if they didn't already know) I'd make other GT owners aware.

Re: Feedback on AF-XIED insalled on K1300GT

Does anyone know the contact details of a supplier who can supply the AF-XIED in the UK?
I have had my 2009 K13GT from new and wonder if this fitment would alleviate the hesitation from closed throttle. No matter how delicate I am with the throttle the power comes in too quickly and is not progressive as it should be. If I was able to eliminate that problem, by fitting the AF-XIED, in my view the bike would be faultless!

It's marketed by Nightrider in the US a Harley Davidson dealer in Jersey is listed as the UK dealer - Jersey Harley-Davidson in the Channel Islands.

Get a quote from them by all means but I reckon they stick a wad on top - you could order it direct from Beemerboneyard.com - around £167 including shipping, plus import duty in the UK - around £33 (Motorcycle Parts Accessories have an import duty of 3.7% and VAT at 20%), about £200 all in. I had the same situation when investigating a Corbin seat. They won't ship direct to the UK and the UK named dealers wanted £150 on top of what it would cost me from the States including shipping and import duties. I'm now looking for a donor GT seat to send to a highly acclaimed upholsterer in the UK (there are a few of them) who can replicate the Corbin seat and give better advice. Anyway, went off subject. I'm saying you could well pay more by going to a UK dealer over getting it direct from the States.

If I was able to eliminate that problem, by fitting the AF-XIED, in my view the bike would be faultless!

It's marketed by Nightrider in the US - a Harley Davidson dealer in the Channel Islands is listed as the UK dealer - Jersey Harley-Davidson.

Get a quote from them by all means but I reckon they'll stick a wad of cash on top - you could order it direct from Beemerboneyard.com - around £167 including shipping, plus import duty in the UK - around £33 (Motorcycle Parts Accessories have an import duty of 3.7% and VAT at 20%), about £200 all in.

I had the same situation when trying to buy a Corbin seat. They won't ship direct to the UK and the UK named dealers wanted £150 on top of what it would have cost me from the States including shipping and import duties. I'm now looking for a donor GT seat to send to one of the highly acclaimed upholsterers here in the UK who can replicate the Corbin seat. Anyway, gone off subject. You could pay more for this O2 Sensor Manipulator by going through a UK dealer over getting it direct from the States. It's worth checking.

Judging by the comments so far it would seem that the majority consider this mod to be a positive move - there are plenty of individual accounts about the AX-FiED on the forums.

Re: Feedback on AF-XIED insalled on K1300GT

Ignition ground wire vs. hot stalling, have not heard of this fix in the USofA. Any additional information would be of great help. (as mentioned, this is pretty vague as to which wire gets hot).

I phoned jersey Harley D this morning and although they are listed as UK outlet by the supplier Nightrider the nice lady there said that they generally keep 3 or 4 in stock for Harleys (naturally) as they can take 3 or 4 weeks to arrive. Also, the ordering process for the O2 sensor manipulator is such that for the K1300Gt would be complicated. However, she did sing the AF-XiEDís praises, especially where people were changing air filters and/or exhausts, and considering she has nothing to gain that that was enough for me so I have ordered the unit from Beemerboneyard.com. Itís the only outlet that will ship to the UK as far as I can tell, £172.18 using PayPal, plus the import duties to be paid when it arrives at the courier's local depot.

There are a host of posts regarding the hot stalling issue, you can't miss them. Anyway it's going in for service in about 3 weeks time - I'll ask the dealer when I'm up there & post the reply.

Re: Feedback on AF-XIED insalled on K1300GT

Thanks Robert, I can't wait.

No worries Paul,

Ordered online this morning, I received the dispatch e-mail from Beemerboneyard complete with tracking number half an hour ago. Great service!

Beech, I'll update re, the ignition ground wire when I have more info.

Cheers guys,

Phil.

Robert, was your new start switch replaced under this recall - mentioned on another forum on 17 January 2015?

Re: Feedback on AF-XIED insalled on K1300GT

Robert, I appreciate you fitted your AF-XiED a year ago but wondered if you be able help? I found the plug on the right side of the K1300GT (as I sit on it), tracing the wire up from on top of the collector. The wires on the male plug left to right are Black/White - Brown/White - Yellow/Red - Green/Yellow. Is this the correct plug? There was a spare mounting point for the additional female plug on the AF-XiED, I connected the unit, it lit up, I the yellow light blinked seven times but when I hit the start button the bike tried to turn the starter motor, even having put the battery on the tender and with 12v showing on the multimeter, then it wouldn't turn over at all. I'm hoping it's the battery - it is symptomatic of low battery - and that I haven't stressed the wiring on the original plug. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Cheers, Phil.

Re: Feedback on AF-XIED insalled on K1300GT

Phil, As I remember, I "un-plugged the first junction point (following the wire up from from the O 2 sensor) screwed into the silencor. This will be behind the vertical rear suspension - the wire goes up following it."Plug" the Af-xied male into where the the conn. you un-plugged ( a female). Take the male you un-plugged from the O 2 sensor and plug it into the female (female of the af-xied). So in effect you are piggybacking the original conn. with your af-xied device. Now find the closest ground you can find in this area ( back & up as I remember) and connect the other wire to this ground point. Make sure there yes no strain on any of the existing wiring and use tie-wraps everywhere convenient to keeping everything tight and in place. Hope I haven't confused or made you angry with this, but it worked fine for me. Didn't pay attention to the flashing lights, etc. It worked fine. Set it up to the "8" setting (clock-wise)right off the bat with a small jewellers screwdriver. You might be right about the battery.

Re: Feedback on AF-XIED insalled on K1300GT

Hello Robert, thanks, I was trying to establish that I'd found the right connector. A picture guide posted by another person on this forum showed the connector to be on the other side of the bike (on a K1300S), but I couldn't make out the wire colours on the male connector - I can't see the wire colours on the female plug. There is another similar connector on the left of the bike, but with blue/grey, yellow, grey, and blue/yellow wires. Anyway, I think I've got it - I think it's the battery. Thanks for your reply.
Phil.

Re: Feedback on AF-XIED insalled on K1300GT

Thanks for the details on this install! I got mine yesterday for my K1300GT and the included instructions did not include any details for the K models. I would have been lost but your details helped me add mine in less than 10 minutes. Thanks again, super easy installation, as you said, all you have to do is remove the seats, you can do all that you need to do without removing anything else.

Re: Feedback on AF-XIED insalled on K1300GT

I installed one about a month ago with the help of my mate cmaynebne. He had fitted one to his 2008 k1200r and was very impressed. I also have a 2008 k1200r with 71000km. It suffered terribly with rough running at lower revs and light throttle. The AX-FIED has transformed my bike and I wish I'd fitted one a lot earlier. Not sure about fuel consumption figures but the Australian iBMW rally should prove a suitable test. Mine is also set on 8 as per cmaynebne's recommendation. Sorry I'm a bit off topic but these things are worth singing the praises of.

Re: Feedback on AF-XIED insalled on K1300GT

I've currently got it on setting 7 and I have noticed a slight increase in fuel consumption, but I've got a Remus Hexacone fitted so that might have something to do with it. I'd be interested to hear how your figures pan out after your Aussie Beemer rally. Enjoy!

Re: Feedback on AF-XIED insalled on K1300GT

I have an AF-XiED on a K12R.
I had it at 9, and it was horrible. Still lots of surging.

Dialed back down to 8, and even 7. Fuel economy was appalling. No improvement.

When I was about to give up on the device. Tried it at 4.
Outstanding.

Dunno... a whole lot better at that setting.

Probably climatic and/or atmospheric influences.

Re: Feedback on AF-XIED insalled on K1300GT

I think you're right.

This is what I've noticed.

On rainy, humid and hot days. The bike is just downright horrible. Surging, bucking, unrideable.

On cool, "dry" days (meaning less than 60% humidity), the bike is a completely different, and very friendly animal.

I even replaced the airbox temp sensor.

Just recently I disassembled the airbag and cleaned the idle actuator... it was clean anyway.

The same behavior.
Hot, humid, rainy = surging, bucking, unrideable.
Dry = good bike

Hey Phil. I also have a baffled Remus hexacone fitted to my k12 r. I have just completed 5100 km on the Australian ibmw rally which had all types of riding conditions and lots of headwinds. Prior to fitting the af-xied I got 5.7 litres / 100km. With the af-xied I got 5.9 litres / 100km set on 7. The change to the bike has been fantastic and well worth the extra 200cc of fuel / per 100 km. I also have a 190 55 17 Bridgestone s30r which drops my revs by around 250. IE 3750rpm at 100 kph so this could assist in lowering fuel consumption as well.

Re: Feedback on AF-XIED insalled on K1300GT

I just installed this device about two weeks ago and it is so much better now. I bought the bike a little over a year ago with only 5K miles on it, and I've put another 5K on. I've been somewhat hesitant with the bike in the twisties and some roll on situations, because I lacked the confidence in its throttle behavior. The way it bucked and bogged at part throttle had me thinking there must be something wrong with my bike. After 3 hours riding experience since installing AF-XIED I bought from beemerboneyard, it is blatantly improved. Extremely happy with the change.

Interested in this for my K1300
Where did you get yours from Pete?
Aussie dollar still pretty weak so would cost $345 delivered.......mmmm, my bike doesn't run too bad but could be interesting

Hey Randall I got mine from Beemer Boneyard. One Of iBMW's vendors. You will find the postage obscene but if you ask for better rates they will oblige substantially. I'm sure mine cost about $250 delivered. I was not concerned about cost if it worked - and it did. It depends, I guess, on how annoying your bike is relative to the cost of fixing it. If you order on the net make sure you mention iBMW in the section where it asks how you found Beemer Boneyard

Re: Feedback on AF-XIED insalled on K1300GT

8 is the magic number for my 2010 K13GT with 13,400 mi. I installed the unit last fall, left it at the factory setting of 7 and thought I had an improvement in throttle response, hesitation and surge. Probably more hope than actual. This season when I got her back on the road I was not happy. Roll on coming out of corners and around town was bad. Surge on throttle off a bit pucker every once in a while. I was really not liking my bike. Spent some time last week going back over the posts here and on the MOA forum. Set the unit to 8. Watched the LED flashes on start up per the unit instructions to make sure the setting was correct. (Note, the dial does not have indents to help you count the setting numbers.) Anyway, she was almost instantaneously a new bike. I'm not trying to be overly dramatic here, but one number higher in the setting made a world of difference on my scooter. I love my bike all over again.

Obviously these machines may be a little different. Atmospheric elements, fuel quality, state of tune, etc. may all come into play. If I'd give one piece of advice, it would be don't be afraid to experiment with the settings and use the LED flashing at start up to confirm your setting.

BTW, I have not noticed a major impact on fuel economy one way or the other with the AF-XiED or due to its settings.

Ride safe!

+1 to the product. Similarly positive comments to give it on a K12RS brick engine.

Re: Feedback on AF-XIED insalled on K1300GT

Just had my Lambda sensor replaced on my K1300GT.
The bike has AF-XIED installed however on humid rainy days the bike would tick over horribly almost cutting out & spluttering, I had noticed this getting worse over the last months, got sick of it & brought to Joe Duffy Motorrad, Dublin, Paul had it in on diagnostics and found out the Lambda was bogus, replaced it and bike is awesome again.

The change to the bike has been fantastic and well worth the extra 200cc of fuel / per 100 km. I also have a 190 55 17 Bridgestone s30r which drops my revs by around 250. IE 3750rpm at 100 kph so this could assist in lowering fuel consumption as well.


Oooops I mean 4.7 and 4.9 litres /100km

Re: Feedback on AF-XIED insalled on K1300GT

I'm having a couple of fueling issues with my(new to me) '09 K13GT (with Remus)

1. It occasionally coughs/misses when I jump on it hard.
2. After some spirited riding, it has a fluctuating high idle (1800-2300RPM) for a while.

Will the AF-XIED cure these issues, and is the AF-XIED the same thing as the Booster Plug?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Feedback on AF-XIED insalled on K1300GT

First, check to see if your bike has the software update for the fuel map. I have an 09 K1300GT with a Remus exhaust and I don't have these issues. When hitting the throttle hard, I usually just roll on the power.
