2006 BMW K1200 GT Booster Plug Install
The following is my attempt at DYI for varying updates/maintenance.
Remove the Battery (see separate DYI in HOW).
Remove side fairings (plastics) (see separate DYI in HOW).
Remove the Fuel Tank (see separate DYI in HOW).
Common experience for most of us:
After running on the interstate for many miles (using cruise control for most of it) I come into towns or side streets and the bucking, lurching, surging starts. Will the Power Commander or the Booster Plug resolve the issue?
Some say yes others say:
Devices like the PC or Booster Plug are designed to fine-tune fuel management, not resolve mechanical defects or running problems.
This DYI is for the Booster Plug:
It is delivered from Denmark within a few days. Simple device, plug and play.
Installation requires that the BP be connected in-line with the current fuel management electronics. This connector is located at the rear lower right of the airbox, right next to the 5 manifold hoses.
Unplug using un-locking clip. Plug in the BP (connections are type specific so a no brainer).
Stow the BP device in the are
Next is the routing of the lone remaining cable which has the remote sensor. Its is noted in the directions for the BP that the sensor be placed so that it is in ambient temperature, not near any drastic heat source as the engine, so it up to you where you locate it. I routed it to the right and under the airbox toward the front of the fairing.
I wanted to mount it close to the bikes temp sensor but not attached to it so I removed the right side computer module
and drill holes in the radiator fairing (plastic) and zip tied the cable.
I also wrapped the sensor/probe in a small amount of vinyl tubing to reduce the stress on the sensor cable itself induced by the zip ties.
Booster Plug installation is complete.
Re-install fuel tank, battery, fairings plastics.
I hope all this was helpful.
