Last weekend at the southern outskirts of the Atacama desert.
2021 CRF1100D DCT
Added:
-PUIG Touring Screen.
-BarkBusters-Storm handguards
-Hepco-Becker Alurack Top Case carrier
-Hepco-Becker Explorer 45lt Top Case
-GIVI upper and lower Crash Bars
-Hepco-Becker Center Stand
-Grip Buddies, RAM Mounts for smartphone, side stand shoe extension. Eastbound MotoWinch for the peace of mind on solo rides.

Likes: DCT, long range suspension, handling at operating speeds; a joy to ride on dirt roads and highways. Quick-fast enough for me.

Dislikes: jerky throttle and handling at walking speed maneuvers on first gear, not being able to lift the bike by myself (not at risk of serious damage to my back and neck) at stupid drops at low speeds cause of the jerky throttle, if I survive the incident (Yes, I did try to feather the back brake and failed anyway).

Booster plug almost totally eliminates that low speed throttle on off folly. And improves throttle response through entire rev range. A 45 tooth rear sprocket made it even better. Will post my pics for contest when I get home.

Not available on 2021 models and on because "with the new emission restrictions that are enforced from 2021, the manufactorers are obliged to build monitoring systems into the ECU and make sure they flash a warning in the dashboard if any of the sensors are showing signs of being tweaked. This monitoring thing does not only affect the BoosterPlug. The new ECU’s are locked for remapping (ECU flash), and Power Commanders and the horrible O2 eliminators will have the same problems with the arrival of the new emission regulations. There is no way around this, so we (BoosterPlug Co.) had to make the tough decision to stop developing new BoosterPlug’s and make it clear that we do not support bikes newer than 2020."
Maybe i'll try DoubleThumper plugs

Hey guys, keep in mind the following when posting. Particularly #1 because i need to eliminate some excess photos.

  • You must add 3 Photos; no more, no less. NO Collages. Pictures must be of the current state of your vehicle. Avoid having any people in your images.
  • List any/all Legal Modifications to your vehicle if you have done any.*

@Gorilla2891 and @ORVdaveVA please let me know which 3 photos you want to keep.

Edit: Actually with @ORVdaveVA I can figure it out. There are two with no bike in the photos that are out. But please add the additional info so that the entry can be considered :)

Edit 2: Actually I can figure out @Gorilla2891's as well. Noticed a couple are dupes :)

Why does it post pics twice? I try to edit and there are only 3. This happens a lot.
Fixed it :)
