And you gained what? Better fuel and less vibes?
More power is not so important. For me it has enough.
We are two 1150GSA's thinking about it.
One bike has done 70 000kms+ and single spark.
Mine 67 000kms twin spark.
Any advice would be appreciated and no sales talk please!! :thumleft: :deal:

i gain around 5-8% on my daily ride ,since it is more stop /run drive in traffic (i do around 120k a day) ,on a long rides it will no make no difference  at all since your Lamb sensor take over and govern your fuel .
so my advice is -if you do a traffic ride then this is for you ,if you are aiming on long hall type riding than it is not what you are looking for

Shit ek wil ook een van hierdie goeters he :thumleft: Lyk my dit maak lekker NOG lekkerder..............Sal dit my waarborg affekteer en kan die Beemer mense dit optel op hulle computers ??? BTW ek ry n 2011 GSA :thumleft:

nee hulle sal nie dit optel nie - hule kan net "error-codes" lees. Jy kan ook try om jou Lamda sensors se plug's te ontkoppel - onder die silinders. Dit laat die fiets ook ryker loop. Ek het gekry dat ek nou in 5e rat teen styl bult met vrou agterop kan ry - geen pinging en hy loop soos 'n bom, waar ek voorheen in 3e rat my tande moet kners!
Goosie my ou maat, nou praat jy gans taal ??? Het nie a farking clue waarvan jy praat nie ??? NOEM MY DOm..............maar eksplain nog a bietjie verder seblief

I ordered one of these booster plugs from Schlowy. I've been wanting one for a while - the guys over on ADVrider seem to rave about it.

I gotta say it's quite a pleasure dealing with this Schlowy crowd. The website is very lekker & easy to use & I got my delivery inPE at 9am the next day.
Big up to you Schlowy & gang! :thumleft: :thumleft:
go BIG or go home

Hi Chuck You
It will be interesting to hear your views after installing the accelerator module. I have one on a F800GS and it works. Keep us posted!

This AM got a huge thumbs up from someone that doesn't know it exists this Saturday.  That must be the best recommendation any product can get.  It happened like this.

After fitting the AM to my bike I was real impressed.  Rushed home and explained all to my wife.  Of course, my wife being a female wife (I am old fashioned that way), she couldn't care two hoots and gave the obligatory uhms and aahs to show me she was listening to me and not watching 7de Laan on TV.

So, Saturday she did her thing in town and I did mine.  Afterward we met at the R21 South Engen 1-Stop for coffee and then we ducked home.  At this point I should mention that she rides a 2009  R1200GS, the same as mine.  Only two differences.  Colour and hers is running the standard exhaust.

Now, she has been wondering about handle bar raisers for some time, so we decided to lower my seat and she would ride my bike home to feel how it feels with handle bar raisers.  Off we went on our merry way, about 20 or so km's to our home.  Arrived there, parked the bikes and I asked:

Me: "So?  How does it feel?"

She: "Your bike is much smoother than mine!  Why?"

After riding a Kawasaki Versys, which had a low 1st gear for fast pullaways, smooth motor and a hooligan temperament, I had to learn to live with the F800GSs lackluster low RPM temperament. The AM has changed that, and made the motor smoother and the throttle less twitchy.

Schlowy any 1150's done high mileage with this boosterplug in?
Reports that one can read perhaps?

The following dogs got 1150GS plugs from me and are all happy about the results.  Not professional tests though.

Camojo
Veldbrand
Fingers.

Send them a pm and ask them their individual opinion.

I fell victim to Boer's "Thingamabob" on Saturday and this is my findings.

My bike ran very hot before. You could even smell it when you stopped after a ride and my exhaust pipes are darkblue. After a 100km's the bike was noticeably cooler. Although it still showed up 4 stripes on the dash, but I understand that the heat gauge at 4 stripes are quite tolerant before it changes.

My engine always sounded very rough when idling but is now noticeably smoother. In fact it sounds completely different.

I had a lot of vibration coming through and that all seems to have smoothend out.

My fuel consumption has dropped by 0.2 l/100km already. The bike has noticeably more power at bottom end and I work the clutch less on pulaways. Throttle response is definitely improved.

Last but not least, Boer is a very helpfull and pleasant guy to deal with and if you do not have on of these thingamabobs in your bike, your should do it soon! It really works.

Cocky, go for it!
Would be very interesting to hear if it has the same effect on your bike and what you think of it.
I have had the same positive experience mentioned by BRUTUS above.
Have not had much chance to check on the fuel consumption bit though since I'm hoping to get my bike back before Friday from the repair shop after the diesel incident on the way to the FS bash...
Can't wait!
