How much is the booster plug? Installation?
Listed price USD160. I am keeping prices better than that as long as I can. Installation means removing some rhs panels, but it is plug 'n play.
BoosterPlug, LED Spots, Tool Tubes, RustStop, Kappa Screens, Top boxes, Tank Bags, ATG Gear - whatever works for me.

My 2016 is ook warm aan regterkant, maar nie uithoubaar nie. Gaan die Booster-plug nie die fiets se temp meter beinvloed nie? ( op my vorige S Ten was dit wel die geval)
Op BMW's het die BoosterPlug geen uitwerking op die temperatuur meter nie. Dit laat wel die fiets bietjie koeler loop, wat goed is.

My fiets was toe Donderdag in by BMW en hulle het klomp fotos geneem toetse gedoen en n tegniese verslag deur gestuur na BMW SA toe. Ek wag nou vir terugvoering. Sal laat weet as ek iets hoor.

Received this feedback from them today:

Hi Bertie
Nee. Motorrad SA het ‘n “Group Complaint” met Duitsland aanhangig gemaak en wag op ‘n hoë vlak besluit oor volgende stap . Sodra ek weet sal ek jou inlig.

So, look like we just have to wait and see.

Donford CT phoned me yesterday and said they will sort it out at my 10kkm service, or I could bring it in sooner if I want.  i was in a meeting and didn't get any details as to what the fix entails.

Very interesting, wonder what the fix will be. Can you please try to find out for us??
As far as I know the only thing that will fix this is to fit Akra or Remus Headers.

I don't believe we should have to fit anything if it is a design fault BMW must sort it out at there expense
