Dreaded warm weather engine lag
I have a question about the Rhine West Performance Chip. I have searched and read everything I can find about the subject here on the forums for the past few days, as well as gone to the Rhine West website looking for an answer to my question with no luck.
I have a 1999 LT that I purchased in June of this year. I came from an Electra Glide, so I donít know too much about Beemers. My girlfriend has two bikesÖí93 K1100LT and a í95 K1100LT. I have had the pleasure of riding both of these bikes and it convinced me to buy the LT when a Ford Expedition totaled my Harley (but thatís a different story!) I have discovered the dreaded engine lag in warm weather due to the fuel mapping in my control unit (good info in here guysÖthanks!) and I know that I donít have a brown wire on the í99. I also know that I have the older control unit with a single fuel map.
What can I do about the warm weather lag? Pulling the yellow cap under the top case only works if you have the newer control unit, right? Will the Rhine West Chip take care of the engine lag? Is there any other way I can address this problem? I know that a lot of you have installed performance chips in conjunction with different exhausts and Iíd like to learn from your experiences.
