    Any easy to install, proven modification to get a bit more pep out of an 1150 RT?

    2002 1150 RT. Throttle bodies have recently been synched. The RT is pretty quick, especially above 6K, but hoping for a quicker throttle response. I heard there are some good chips out there? Any feedback is appreciated.

    I've had many sport bikes; nothing wrong with wanting, "A beautiful women who also lets her guard down in bed." Sounds like you never experienced both qualities at the same time. I feel for you, my friend.

    I highly recommend this product. https://www.beemerboneyard.com/bmwafxied1150.html

    Installed a few of them now and everyone comes back with a grin on their face.
    It won't really boost your horsepower but will make the bike a lot more drive able and run cooler. Reduces pinging as well.
    I've had one on my own 1150GS since they came out a few years ago would not leave home without it.
    You won't be disappointed - plug and play.

    Drew,
    I have the same. Are you saying that in the best gear for the speed and the throttle to the stop you aren't getting the acceleration you need?

    I treated mine to Lennie's Rocket Sprockets plus the AF-XIED. I was quite happy with the bottom end performance boost. The Lennie's cam sprockets are not a difficult install, but it would certainly be possible to muff it up...

    Nope!
