Booster Plug

Does your bike have the typical "Snatchy Throttle"? If so you might be interested in an as new unit I have for sale.

I'd prefer to sell it to someone local (Australia that is) but can post anywhere. It cost me a bit less than $300 AUS but will sell for $200

For that price you could get a re-flash, and they are only 200$ AUD new

Reflash are not $200 here in Australia.
At least double that and more. Getting a reflash for $200 overseas is risky as they are not set up for Australian fuels and setup.
I solved my issues by PC V made it smooth as, installing it also by passes the O2 sensor which is half of the problem in lean and rough running.
It now performs like a beauty!

You are correct Jeffro. But Wow, wasn't expecting such positive responses from the others (not).

Obviously they have to sell it for well over what the parts cost (like pretty much everything else you buy)...IAT thermistor ($35 from Suzuki), some resistors, cable, connectors, housing and casing, assembly, R&D, marketing, overhead, profit, etc. Anyone is obviously free to do the research, purchasing, building and testing to build their own, but most don't have the knowledge, equipment, time or ability. Lots of folks have had issues that the BP solved and decided it was worth the cost. The markup on the BP is probably no more, if not less than, markup on OEM parts for motorcycles and cars. This is fresh on my mind because just this week Honda dealer wanted $750 for a distributor for 99 Civic, and another $450 to install. (To be fair, this may have included four plug wires.) I went to auto parts and got a new aftermarket dizzy for $150 and installed myself in 15 minutes. That's some markup...

His first message before he edited it did say it cost 300$, hence my post that you could get a reflash for 300 - sorry for any offence
