I watched about 75% of it, but the urge to bite my iPad kept growing until I stopped the video.

With nothing better to do I watched the whole vid and then read all the info on the Booster plug web site.
To be fair to the inventor he does supply a lot of info on how it works and even a downloadable booklet he has written on motorcycle fuel injection.
Having waded through all the bumf it seems to be if the answer to all your fuel injection woes is to add 6% extra fuel across the entire open loop range the guy has got the solution.
I was going to try to enlighten the vid maker and his disciples to the pitfalls of his supposed panacea and then thought better of it, why get in the way of a fool and his money.

Agreed. Best not to poke the hornets nest.

The fact his info is at best poorly presented and at worst plain wrong is OK?

He, and the manufacturer of this device, have absolutely no idea about how FI *Works* and their whole theory and modus operandi is based on the idea that 'Everybody' knows that the evil gummint wants to stop us having fun.

I'm over it. If others want to waste their money? That's no issue to me. What makes my blood boil is that this sort of shit will lead to ever more draconian legislation meaning that others who actually make things work better AND in the long term benefit the environment will be blocked from doing so because they will be forced to abide by a 'Broad Brush' type of legislation that while cheap to engineer and implement is only of benefit for very ordinary 'Cookie Cutter' engineered vehicles with no character.

Fortunately the days of the internal combustion engine are numbered. The new frontier is, so far, largely unregulated. I'll probably see out my riding life mainly on IC vehicles but I'm really looking forward to the change as idiots like Booster Plug man will be shuffled off to the dustbin of history and good riddance!

Ha! When we're all riding 'lectric bikes, there'll be charlatan's selling Ion Alignment Regulators to boost torque and battery life.

Yer probably right. Perhaps we can get in on the ground floor? A small box with a couple of LED's that flash intermittently and make your Energica Ego do 79% of the speed of light! Roll up! One day only offer!

Well Pete Triumph have locked the diy tuner out of their latest ecus (for now) which will encourage more of the plugin magic box brigade to have a go. Youtube is now full of this sort of stuff and I find it entertaining to watch in a weird sort of way.
There is a Yorkshire guy that calls a spade a spade who has his own channel taking the piss out of the snake oil salesmen. He recently had a visit from the old Bill when one of them complained about harassment. It's a jungle out there.
