I was wondering about these also, saw them listed on eBay last night for various bikes.

From what I've read, it's a resistor that fools the air temp sensor into thinking the air is cooler than it actually is. Marginal gain if any at all. But, some people will buy anything.

if its for performance on ebay and its around 20 bucks its full of shit.....
They do the same damn thing with cars as well its BS You cant make your car faster by having it think the air is colder. more performance coming from cooler air is science colder air = Denser air = stronger combustion = HP you cant get it from fooling an ECU

^^^^ more like your post is bullshit. Certain cars (i.e. Turbos) can benefit a lot from chipping

but the Subject of the post - is a complete and utter scam! hell I'll sell you some stickers for $20 that will make your bike go faster ;) lol

Hey I got those stickers and I'll be the first to say " they don't work".. :lao

any performance chip for a car or bike is bullshit
Not so. All a performance chip does is optimize fueling, timing, boost (if applicable), and drive-by-wire (if applicable) for a particular setup (but I won't say that every chiptuner knows what they're doing). Power can be found in almost all stock cars by running optimum timing and fuel mixtures. All stock cars run conservative timing to protect against bad gas, poor maintenance, and user abuse; most stock cars will also run rich mixtures which hurts power output. Turbo cars are easy to make significant gains on because a tuner can simply raise boost pressure (but fuel and timing should also be adjusted to suit). There is definitley power to be found in all fuel injected cars with OEM software-- I am a specialist in Siemens and Bosch fuel injection and make rhwp every day on high-end euros.

In re the topic of this post, I agree with what has been said above about the "chip" being just a resistor. In this case, there is no real chiptuning going on, this is simply a sensor mod-- which I never recommend.

It's not that the car would be faster because it "thinks" the intake air is cooler, but you could make power if changing that sensor's input to the ECU resulted in the ECU running a more aggressive timing map. I'm not saying this is the right way to tune-- there is no substitute for properly calibrating the ECU's maps-- but it can result in desirable gains.

There's your answer. Is it a scam... oh yes.
