      Someone on this board has one and when I ask what it is he does not reply.

          I seriously doubt that little box can do all the things he has listed in the description.
          Quote:
          The G-Box enhances performance in two ways. First, it modifies signals being read by the ECU causing an adjustment to the fuel curve, which is what creates the performance gain. All performance chips and modules operate in this manner. The fuel curve is modified across the entire rpm range, increasing low-end throttle response, increasing high-rev power and making upshifting more crisp. The second feature of the G-Box is it's "High-Heat Signal Correction." In short, when the engine compartment heats up, some sensors that relay pertinent fuel curve contingent information to the ECU begin to lose accuracy due to heat absorption into the sensor. The ECU then reads these incorrect signals, and leans out the fuel curve, which is bad for performance. These errors cannot be corrected from within the computer, there must be an independant unit to correct these errors. The G-Box is designed to automatically compensate for these signal errors.

            Sounds like a crock to me. I've got $5 for whoever decides to buy one though and review the before/after results. So who on this boards owns a dyno.....

                  If I planned on going to a dyno anytime soon I'd be up for it. But since I've only had the bike a few weeks, I probably wouldnt even know if there was a big difference...

                  Hmm, Joker seems like he's done a lot to his B/W. Maybe he'd make a good GPOTM

                    All it is is a TRE module that doesnt do shit for some/most bikes. 10HP.....yeah.....bullsh*t.

                        GPOTM

                        If it doesn't cost me a cent I'll test it. Someone buy one and send it to me, I'll test it and send it back and pay return postage.

                        After reading it, all I can think of, is it hooks up to an O2 sensor of a car and manipulates its value to the ECU, of course it is useless on our bikes or vehicles that don't use one. Why listed as a TL1000R item :dunno

                        Someone email him and ask exactly where does it hook up to. I have no Ebay account and don't plan on getting one so I can't ask jack.

                          Here is what I sent him.

                          "How does this thing hook up. From the description I don't think this will work on a TLR, or a bike for that matter."

                          Will post reply when I get it.

                            Ok. here it is, his reply.

                            "it hooks to the iat sensor(temp sensor) and i have sold quite a few of these and have dyno sheets being sent o tme from the various people so for you question of working....dont knock it till you got it"

                            Not having a Tiller I have no idea what a IAT sensor is. Anybody?
                            RIP Ron

                              Intake Air Temperature

                              It is a common trick in cages to manipulate the intake temperature readings to trick the ECU into thinking that the manifold is up to temperature and start running the leaner, more aggressive, mappings. This is a great trick for areas of the world where the temperatures never dip below 75 degrees F but for us in the north where it can be in the negative numbers it is a very unsafe mod to do. If the intake air never heats up because of the below freezing ambient temps it will cause the motor to run extremely lean and in most cases burn up the pistons. Check the net for this trick but do it at your own risk.
