    Pipestone, so what do you notice in performance on your 2011 RT. I have been thinking about doing this but what improvements do you actually notice?

    any problem with stickin' the BP temp sensor here?



    put about 25 miles on it today... temp about 60 degrees. can't really say i notice much of a difference. might have been a bit smoother off the line and at slow speed in second and third. i did notice a definete aroma during idle warm up... probably unburned fuel due to the richer f/a ratio.

    Its just what everybody says it is..for me a big A+ in all around drive ability..I run a Remus exhaust w/baffle in.

    I'm a very happy customer

    If you don't like it ..which I doubt..unplug it and sell.

    I read like you once about this product..best upgrade I made to the RT

    Just what I think

    Thanks for the input. I think I will pick one up. I too have a 2011 RT so was interested in what you thought. Instead of a Remus I have an Akrapovic that I have taken the baffles out. I will let you know what I think of it.

    If I get one of these for my '12 RT, I'll have the sensor in the intake air path somewhere (I have to say, putting it into the back of the airbox above is a quite slick idea!).

    I have a BP installed on my R with the temp sensor zip tied to the left side of the fuel canister.It's in clean air all the time.

    I have the same performance results as you do..... better idle..... take off at lower RPMs but other than that no real noticeable difference.

    Talking Love the booster plug

    I have had the booster plug installed for about five days now. It took 15 minutes to put in and I am so pleased with the results. A+++ I have an R1200 gs and it had made a big difference. I read on a lot of different forums about mpg's to be frank i would sacrifice 3-5 mpg's for what this simple plug has done
