Hi Bling King.  Is the price still the same as in your first post ?
Yup - despite the Rand falling through its ass and the rest of the maladies I won't bore you with, I will do it for the same price for you Dawgs!

Hi Bling King.  Is the price still the same as in your first post ?

Yup , and he's got supplies  :thumleft: Got mine last thursday , installed it but still to do a longish run. Only doing it this comming weekend to Loskop. Just remember the engine must be running before you start setting up the unit ( not clearly stated in the pamphlet ). Otherwise you will get a faulty wiring indication when you power up without starting the motor. Best is to mail Denver directly . Must say that the constant backfiring when throtling back is gone and the motor seems to be more docile but seems to pull better than before  ???

:thumleft: Good to hear they have stock AND the price is still the same! Nice to hear about the smoothness and the backfiring that's gone. Enjoy the "new" bike  :ricky:

Tried the bike out this weekend and it is working great  :deal:  First time ever that my exhaust is burning a dark brown and fuel consumption seems to be the same as before  ::) The computer still reconing I'm on 5.9 l/100 so I am going to wait for the reserve light to come on to see what the difference might be. My current settings are set to Wunderlich's reccommended recipe for full pipe and sponge filter and I am happy with it  :deal:

Enige iemand wat dalk 'n power commander op 'n 800gs probeer het? sal graag wil hoor wat die terugvoering was.

You can reset the meter by holding the info button in when it displays the consumption.  It will be interesting to see the average start again  :thumleft:

Hi Pote :-) I put the Wunderlich Power Controller (similar to, but less advanced, Power Commander) on my F800GS and I'm very happy. Read this thread from the beginning as somewhere in this thread is a link to the thread with my dyno chart. I would imagine the Power Commander would be even better but at a considerably higher cost.
