    Booster Plug for TTSE...Your Welcome!!!

    To all TTSE folks,

    About 5 years ago i had a 07 Tiger 1050 and i fitted a Booster plug on it and it made quite a nice improvement in overall performance specifically throttle response and engine smoothness.

    So, when i got the TTSE one of my first intentional upgrade was going to be add a Booster plug (BP) but...sadly they didn't make one for my 17 Trophy.

    After extensive research i found that the 17 Tiger 1200 shares so many parts, and engine, with the TTSE that i thought...what if...so i ordered the BP for the 17 Tiger and eureka it works perfectly in the TTSE.

    I will tell you, if you haven't had the chance to enjoy the 2 hour long project to reach, and return from, the air box on the TTSE it's a chore to say the least.  I suggest, while in there, throw a high flow air filter in also.

    The BP isn't like a Power Commander where it supposedly boosts HP, it's about making everything smoother and it definitely does that and the the BP is significantly cheaper than a PCV.

    I worked directly with BP over last 2 weeks in this trial and sent them pictures for them to eventually build installations instructions.  At some point they will add it to their website as "now available for the TTSE" but i wanted to let all of you know now in case you've been looking for something to enhance your ride.

    Cheers

    Looks interesting, and they have already listed it as "in stock" and available for purchase. They have pictures, which I'm assuming are yours.   I've never heard of these and are completely unfamiliar. Do you know what it's done to your gas mileage?

    Welcome to the group, by the way, and thanks for this contribution!

    I rode with it for about 250 miles today and as far as i can tell my mileage has increased about 2-3 mpg with the BP

    Ok, that seems backwards. They claim that the bikes are tuned too lean from the factory, and their solution is to trick the computer into enrichening the air/fuel mixture across the gradient. That'd be pretty cool if it resulted in better gas mileage, but seems counter intuitive.

    I agree it does seem a little opposite but perhaps it evens out the fuel usage over the entire range.

    Even if it dropped 2-3 MPG it's still worth the smoothness to me.

    My TTSE was quite clunky and jerky from 1 to 2 to 3 unless i took it up to around 5500rpm before shifting now smooth at any rpm and slow speed maneuvers in parking lots are much improved

    I personally donít have any problem at all with
    the way my Trophy engine runs at any speed.

    As this device makes the engine run richer,
    do you have any information about its effects
    on exhaust gas emissions, and the legality of
    fitting it in Countries where the Emissions  have
    to be within certain parameters to be road legal ?

    I too don't find any roughness when changing gear etc, I certainly don't need to rev that high between each gear,...well only to get a BMW/Merc/Audi driver off my number plate.

    All of these types of gadgets are gimmicks in my opinion and if they really did what they claim, why wouldn't Triumph etc be fitting/using that technology themselves??

    I know that the original Booster Plug changed the air temperature sensor signal to make the ECU believe the air was a bit colder than the actual outside temperature As a result the ECU responds by making the Air/Fuel ratio slightly richer.

    That was the general principal back in 2009 but I suspect the BP may well have evolved some since then, nevertheless the underlying principal is probably the same.

    With regards to fuel consumption, as the lambda sensor signal is not changed then it only tweaks the AFR when needed, so when riding normally you go back to a leaner (normal) mode. This gives you the best of both worlds and marginal cost to fuel consumption.
