Just wondering if anyone has installed one on their bike.

Yes it tricks the computer into thinking it's a cooler reading. I have been getting some puffing and spitting. And stalled a couple times. Thinking this might correct this lean problem. I want to order one.

I seen them on eBay and almost purchased one. I decided to go with the X-TRE instead because I didn't have to make any mods to the bike whereas the booster plug requires you to cut a hole in the airbox. If you get one, let us know how it works out for you.

I would also be interested in a testimonial. It's a bit pricey for the actual parts involved, but if it performs like they claim, it would be worth it for me.
