    Boosterplug anyone ?

    Anyone have tried this on their NC ? I'm very curious about the result and I'd like to test it...I'm ok with the power of the NC but hey...why not ?

    Haven't tried one in my NC but I did install one on an bmw r1200c Montauk. Turned out to be a wonderful upgrade to improving smoother running from idle to cruising speed. Also improved gas mileage ; a great mod for our fuelly folks as well. If I remember correctly how it works is it basically overrides the current settings in the fuel injection system and "takes over command." A neat little component that did make a difference on the beemer. Thought about installing one but putting my $ towards other farkling for now. Would have absolutely have no reservations on anyone trying this and was super easy to install.

    Hmm, very interesting. A simpler install than the Bazzaz controller.

    I wonder which is better

    By the way it reads, it is nothing more than a resistor and another NTC- or PTC-resistor.

    For testing if it even does something, you could solder a potentiometer or just some 10k resistor in-line with the NTC that sits in the air-box.

    They work fine at first. They con the ECU into thinking it is colder and it shoots in a little more fuel. But, in closed loop mode, when the oxygen sensor detects excess fuel, The ECU will start trimming it back until the target lambda ratio is again achieved. At that point, fuel trim has offset the increase that was initially provided by fooling the sensor. Lambda is the air/fuel equivalence ratio and is the actual air/fuel ratio divided by the theoretical (stochiometric) air/fuel ratio. A lambda greater than one is a lean mixture, whereas a lambda less than one is a rich mixture. For the change to stay, one needs to put a different lambda goal into the controller.

    One device that does this is the AF-XIED...

    Hi Beemerphile, I don't know if you've read all the detailed explanation (second link) but in this article it looks like they get rid of it...
    I'm not saying you'are wrong and they are right as I have very little competence (read not at all) in electronic or mechanic, but the guy as me curious...

    It has been hashed to death in several other places. I can point you to a nice 79 page discussion that I don't really want to recreate here (or participate in). The difference is in how the process of adaptation is either explained, or explained away.

    I have owned both. My booster plug is around here somewhere because I wasn't even willing to take someone's money for it. My AF-XIED is still installed and operating on my R1150R. The NC fuels so well that I haven't any incentive to muck with it.

    If you want 6% more performance, just open the throttle more. Putting unburned fuel out the exhaust pipe isn't going to help you. I would think you'd get better results changing the sprockets.

    Also, the rest of us need to breathe air, so don't mess it up too much.
