Hey all.. just thought I'd throw this in here, just incase anyone wanted to know how simple the boosterplug install is and to throw a few pics up with better resolution than the ones that come with the 'installation' brochure.


All you need is a t-30 torx and 8mm socket and you're good to go. Maybe a few cable ties wouldn't go astray either.


1. Remove the seat which reveals these two 8mm bolts... remove



2. Other end of the tank are two t-30 torx screws, remove those.




3. Remove the bib on the top of the tank by gently prying free. They slot into 4 rubber grommets.





4. Gently lift the tank, a slight wiggle and it lifts up easily. Lift up and slide it back a fraction to reveal the plug in question. The one with the blue dot.



5. The boosterplug fits inline with this plug. Gently splay the retaining clip and wiggle it free. Install the booster inline as shown below.. at this point I chose to run the temperature probe along the neck and under the steering head, held in place with a couple of cable ties.



*Notice position of the boosterplug... it tucks in quite nicely there. When you lower the tank back down it can get a little tight on space in there.



6. Reverse the process making note of those rubber disk grommet thingies which the t-30's screw into.. they're unsecured and can easily fall out, roll down the driveway or get chewed by your great dane puppy. Turn the ignition on and scroll through the menu until you get to the temperature page. You should notice it reading considerably lower.


7. What are you waiting for?! Ride already!! :D

Hello love the write up does that mean the temperature gauge is now never accurate but shows the fake temperature

Correct. Forever fake and false... well, until you unplug it again. Upside being more juice being pumped in under acceleration and deceleration.. smoother, cooler running and popping and coughing much decreased. A cheaper alternative to the Power Commander :)

Cheers

I did about 60 miles yesterday after fitting the Booster Plug in my Scrambler,

I bought it hoping it would stop the back firing in the exhaust on shut off, at times it was quite bad and seemed always to happen when I was passing horse riders etc, It was getting quite embarrassing at times and dangerous too,
Well you know what it's cured the back fires on shut off, AND tamed the throttle to how it should have been in the first place ( I know you get used to it, and I did) Nice and smooth,
This is a mod I can recommend to anyone who finds the throttle response a bit of a pain , and IMHO it's well worth the money, and I wish I'd have fitted it when I bought the bike,:rolleyes:

Fitting is easy 20 min max, ( see above post) And my temp sensor was fitted to the brkt holding my fly screen on just above the headlight,
I fitted a Booster Plug to my BMW "Cruiser" about 8 years ago, and I've never had any problems

Same here. I tried removing it and result was too rich.. Have considered disabling the SAI to hopefully get rid of the occasional pop when blipping but so far I haven't tried it.

I did that today, only a ten minute job as I already had a resistor to bridge the connector to hand. No feedback yet as the bike is still tucked up waiting for clean roads.
