    Thanks for sharing the link Pete...I have a feeling that this guy may have a few phone calls coming his way! For now, I'm happy enough with mine as it's optimised for my current state of tune and the only things I'm likely to change is the SE filter as I'll be fitting a K&N when that one's done (HD have advised that the SE ones are not washable and can only be given a rudimentary clean using an air line which doesn't get all the fine crud or any oil mist out....they did of course omit to tell me this until after I had bought the filter). In theory there ought to be little difference between the SE filter and the K&N is they share the same surface area. Still intrigued as to how an Eprom can hold an real time program to bypass the Delphi control system...won't be doing that yet as it would invalidate the warranty remaining.

    Works for me . In all seriousness I've got so used to the braking on the Iron now. I find the brakes work fine, not as good as the brakes on my old NTV, but more than adequate. Had the ABS on a couple of times, it's surprisingly effective in a quick stop.

    Has anyone tried a Booster Plug? It sounds like it's similar to Hilltops idea but a lot cheaper and stays attached to the bike. I think it's about £120 as opposed to £350.

    I think from memory that the booster plug just fools the ECU that it's colder than it is so the ECU makes the mixture richer. This is OK at the revs when the engine is running lean but not so good at other times. Would also mean a very slight increase in fuel consumption, whereas in the 2 tanks of fuel I have used since being done I have noticed better fuel consumption, but too early to be specific.

    My wife has tried them. She'll be ecstatic to know one can be fitted to a bike.

    I think your wife has confused Ann Summers with Halfords.

    Ah well, we all make mistakes. It's easily done. Mind you, the Ann Summers 800 Amp jump leads are really ace. And what about those Halfords 20mm nipple clamps?

    Cheers,

    Chris
