I have a new bike

I dont know what the Power FRK does to our bikes, but being a skeptic, I didnt believe that it could do much. What a huge mistake that turned out to be. The FRK is simply the best thing you can do for your GT. I was considering a new K13GT to replace my 07GT but funds were limited, so I splurged for the FRK and Im thrilled, nay, ecstatic about the result. No more low speed bucking, no more 3.5K flat spot, no more bucking on decel....just smooth power.

Read this thread for lots of detail. It's basically an electronic unit that plugs in to the air temp sensor and fools the ECU into running a bit richer, and a lot smoother. It pretty much solves the fueling issues that many of us K12GT riders have been fighting with.

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Red face Install the FRK???

How do you install the FRK?

There are no directions/pictures for a K1200GT on the CD that came with it. Or on the website. Anyone have a clue or directions they got from the manufacture? The layout of the K1200S looks kinda like my K1200GT. Does this mean that I have to remove the oil tank to install the FRK?

Thanks
Tom
