      I picked up a used one of these the other day - £35. Seems to be a variation on the theme of tricking the ecu into supplying extra fuel - this one's adjustable, so it'll be interesting to see if it does anything worthwhile! M&P are knocking them out for around £90

          Not being convinced that the AM made any difference, have now removed it and fitted a new Boosterplug. The BP has not yet been tested as the bike is now SORN'ed & being prepared for hibernation.

          Fired the bike up today for the first time with the BP fitted. After being stood for 5 months, it immediately started with ease. Just a thought, I wonder if the BP has had any impact on starting. In previous years, the bike has struggled to start after being stored over winter.

            I took my RT for its MoT on Friday, which it passed with flying colours, I'm pleased to say - it was my first ride with the Procom unit fitted. I'd set it to the 2nd mark on the scale - no reasoning behind that choice at all! I'm happy to report that there's definitely been a very noticeable improvement in low-speed running. I can trickle along in traffic quite happily in 3rd/4th gear, and the bike will then pick up cleanly from 20-30mph without hesitation. Previously, I would have had to have been in a lower gear. What's also noticeable is the improved fuelling at walking-pace - no more clutch-slipping needed, for example when executing a turn from a standstill, the engine-running is consistent on the lightest of throttle openings.
            I'm impressed with this bit of kit, well worth a try before spending money on a full Hilltop setup, PC or similar, especially if, like me, you just need the low-speed stuff improving.

              David, Good to hear it fired up OK.


              Is it the Procom PE-PJ-004 that you have fitted?

                Yep, they list that one version for the 1100/1150s and aircooled 1200s. Tbh, I've no doubt that all the units are the same except for the manufacturer-specific connector plugs.

                  It'll be interesting to see if the Boosterplug is any better than the AM.

                  Rode the bike spiritedly yesterday for the first time this year. IMO, the BP is definitely an improvement on the AM. The throttle response is crisper & the bike pulls harder when accelerating. It's less "fluffy" when blipping the throttle whilst changing down. More of a pleasure to ride.

                  If re-mapping produces even better results, then I'd certainly consider getting it done in the future.
