    Had this fitted today, Huge improvement!!
    Idle is much stronger and constant, low gear low speed response is much better, no snatchy throttle and no hunting, mid range improved. Overall makes a great bike even better.
    Word of warning, it took a Honda trained mechanic with all the right tools and experience 2 hours to fit it so unless you know what you are doing let a mechanic fit it !!

    You said that last time they were mentioned, I'm glad that I'm not the only one with a cr4p memory Skids  :008:

    When you read reviews etc. it soon becomes clear that Booster Plugs are definitely a Marmite add-on. If they work for you then great but I can't get my head around why you'd want/need a 6% fuel increase across the whole rev range. It's a real shame a proper re-map solution isn't available for the Dresser.

    CBM I don't think it's a 6% fuel increase across the board https://www.boosterplug.com/shop/cms-how-it-works.html

    Any particular reason that a remap is not available?
