It's very similar to the FatDuc or the O2 Optimizer that Eagan sold.  It tricks the bike into running richer.  You're far better off just uploading a Beetle map for less money and better results.

Can I ask a stupid question ?
Why would you do anything OTHER THAN install a Beetle map ?

Perhaps you do not have the computer literacy to get guzzidiag to work, even after repeated tries with several computers & different cables & reading the step-by-step threads over and over....

At least thats the boat I'm in.  I'm not going to buy one of these things, but I have bought a beetle map, cables, and I still cant get the thing into my ecu. At this point I have just accepted that my Breva will ping in hot weather, and I will never get to install the cat-eliminating crossover I paid several hundred dollars for.

I recently put one on Blu.  It works as advertised, at least on the 1400.  I didn't really notice any issues with the bike for 12,000 miles until I tried this unit.  There is not more power that I can perceive, but it just does everything so much smoother with much more precision in the throttle.  Also, I can remove it anytime if I choose.  I did not want to get into the software, so if you are not computer literate or like me, don't want to change software, I consider this a viable option.

At this point I'm assuming the plug to my ecu is faulty or something... there is now way it's a problem with the cables, guzzi diag, the laptops, and the directions... It's been tried too many times and the directions poured over too excruciatingly for it to be anything else?????

Mayor, it's easy to check.

Pin 2 with the blue wire is ground.
Pin 3 with the yellow/black wire goes to pin 16 of the grey connector on the ECU.

It's very similar to the FatDuc or the O2 Optimizer that Eagan sold.  It tricks the bike into running richer.  You're far better off just uploading a Beetle map for less money and better results.

The primary issue w the O2 adjusters is that it only affects performance in the low to mid rpm range.  That's where the oxygen sensor adjusts engine performance.  They were popular before people found ways to adjust the engine map (Guzzidiag, MyECU, etc). 

Still, they are cheap and interesting to play with, but some people got into trouble with them.  Not sure how that could have happened, but ... people find a way, eh?

The O2 foolers are actually only a couple of electrical parts.  I made my own, before I moved on to adjusting the map directly.

Over a year ago I dropped 1 range colder in spark plugs in my 1100 Breva and it cured my ping issue in hot weather.
