This instruction sheet contains the general BoosterPlug installation instructions.
Bike specific installation tips can be found in the Downloads section.
Installation is really easy - Just follow these steps to install the BoosterPlug:
1. Locate the Air Intake Temperature (AIT) sensor in the air filter box and unplug the cable connector.
· Most bikes will have the AIT sensor in the air filter box, but a few bikes will have the sensor located in a different location .
· Download the bike specific information as mentioned above to locate the AIT sensor on your bike.
2. Connect the BoosterPlug to the AIT sensor and the cable connector you removed in step 1
· The BoosterPlug contains a male and a female connector, so you can't connect them the wrong way.
3. Route the wire with the BoosterPlug sensor to a place where the sensor tip is not effected by engine or radiator heat and zip-tie it in place.
· Do not place the external sensor behind cylinder heads or radiator.
· Install it in a location where the sensor is receiving a reasonable amount of cool air when you ride your bike.
· The sensor cable is long enough to place the BoosterPlug sensor according to our instructions, but if you want to place the sensor in a special location far away from the installation point, you can extend the cable with ordinary 2-wire cable. No magic involved. Just solder the connections and seal with heat-shrink tube.
