    booster plug '10 R1200R

    http://www.boosterplug.com/shop/cms-21.html

    i'm not too interested in more performance (what with me being an old fart) but if the mixture is richer it would seem the combustion temp is lower which may be better for the metallurgy

    dunno but ain't gonna dump $150.00 on it.

    Have two, one on a '05 1200GS and the other on a '10 650 GS Twin. Best $150 I ever spent on any type of performance piece (excepting suspension, which is a lot more expensive). Both bikes run much better off idle with better throttle response into the midrange. No big performance gain, just better rideability.

    It only adds a littlle extra fuel during accel so won't do much to lower combustion temps, usually measured as EGT. And EGTs on street motors aren't in the range of being high enough to be a borderline issue. Typically 200 or 300 degrees below the too hot zone. You can get a street motor into the danger area by increasing air flow a lot, then feeding the extra feul but at a lean enough concentration to push EGTs way up- I had a turbo rotary motor that routinely operating in the 1600 plus range and would melt wastegates over 1700..

    Can't say my 08 RT really needs off idle changes- runs OK stock..

    Ed,

    Take a look at this too: http://www.sol2.be/Performance/ENG/Home/index.html

    It makes my head hurt to wade through the hype on both the BoosterPlug and Accelerator pages, but I'm pretty confident that they do the same thing.

    Given that the actual contents of the Boosterplug are minimal (see: http://f800riders.org/forum/showthre...lerator-module ) the lower cost Accelerator might well do exactly the same job.

    If by choice you buy one, be sure and re post and let people know what you think

    Thanks Man -

    Ditto. For me it is the icing on the cake. The bike always runs like it has just been sync'd and tuned. No stutter or hesitation. Best farckle I have installed.

    Lengthy discussion about this over on the R1200R forum (http://www.r1150r.org/). Comments by several who run boosters.
