I just ordered the BP for my 2016 VS. I have the TBR exhaust and one hell of a twitchy throttle. I need to do an oil change, air filter change, and some other accessories install, so I will be installing this BP at the same time. I'll post again on the results once everything is done.
Bearslayer, I installed an aftermarket GPI and ran the wiring for it, to the diagnostic plug via under that big wire loom, using those tabs. What I did was took the top loom clamp off the air box (coated metal retainer) and unplugged the connectors from the front relay box (in front of air cleaner) and that gave me enough slack to lift that big loom up enough to get it over those tabs and out of the way. It’s a bit of a pain in the arse, but that loom is tight.:nerd: When you go to change the air filter . When you try to remove the air-box cover the wire-looms are difficult. I think several of us broke the front guidance tabs off:surprise:. No big deal I just hate doing an armature job. :crying2:
If anyone has replaced the air-filter WITHOUT breaking that tab PLEASE let me know:grin2:

Very helpful video. I installed mine today, and watching your vid before wrench touched screw helped me avoid some snags (especially the tube-clips on the left side, and the table-trick). Thanks :grin2:Hope this is informative enough for anyone with questions or concerns about if it is right for you!!
That's Great, @GreatScott I am glad it worked out well for you! As of this past weekend, I am 2000 miles into mine and still loving the better control! Where are you located?Very helpful video.

The whole thing took about 30 min. Going for a test ride after I walk the doggos.
That is what I noticed too the first time and really every time I am in a slow first gear turn. And especially moving it around the garage. Also doesn't engine break as quickly which is nice when you want to ride no hands!Went for my first 30+minute ride after the installation of the Booster Plug....and it definitely tamed the throttle down. I think I was experiencing a tad bit more twitchiness since I have the TBR exhaust. However, I am convinced it didn't buck and kick like it did before nor did it backfire as much. Definite improvement, especially in first gear with the slow turns and not having to apply as much throttle to keep it from jerking. Maybe a placebo effect but I doubt it...I am very happy with the purchase, the install and performance.
Awesome info... I'm happy with it and very noticable over the weekend when riding the twisties in the mountains.It’s not a placebo effect. The Booster Plug works on the KVS. If anyone’s not convinced, return the connections to stock and then go ride it.
To add, Actually, I’ll tell you how decent it is. Before I bought the KVS, I had a carbed bike and the throttle response and engine braking was typical of what I expected. Subtle and controlled. When I bought the KVS, I was bucking around like I was sitting on a bronco half the time. I wondered if I’d ever be able to really train myself to run this bike smoothly. I was actually consciously working at my input controls every time I rode. Since I put Booster Plug on the KVS, I forgot all about the throttle snatch and engine braking. Don’t even enter my mind now. It works! Still has excellent throttle response and no more dive bombing when you close the throttle. My only hope is that it will last.
Its pretty Awesome!I installed the Booster Plug a few days ago. My motorcycle went from idling to 2k rpm when you cracked the throttle to being able to control the throttle from idle smoothly up and through the 2k rpm range. When riding with my friend(he leads most of the time), he will make minor speed changes. To keep my distance behind him my motorcycle used to "jerk" back and forth from the engine breaking and the throttle opening back up. Now it is really smooth and keeping my relative position to him is easy. Also, slow turns are easier due to the smooth throttle. If you dont like the twitchy throttle on this motorcycle I highly recommend this product.
