IAT relocation.
« on: November 16, 2018, 10:53:02 PM »
Hello everyone.

Has anyone fitted a IAT relocation kit, and did you think it helps?
I have seen it done on the double R.

Many thanks.

I had it on my R and moved it over to my XR. not sure if you are going to 'notice' a difference, but the reason for it makes sense to me as there is a lot of heat soak in the S1000 series.

I did some searching here a while back and found this thread. Looked into what AndyNJ did and tried to consolidate more information in the thread. I have yet to do it but its on my things to do list.  :745:

IAT sensor relocated.
« Reply #4 on: November 17, 2018, 11:23:12 PM »
HI to everyone.
Went and relocated the IAT sensor today.
I did not want to make any holes in the nose plastics.
So i made up a alloy bracket and shaped it like a  square  U  shape and fitted it in to the frame/headstock.
The steering damper has a bolt to locate it on the frame/headstock. So by fitting a longer bolt i was able to locate the bracket inside the frame /headstock. A washer and lock nut secures the bracket on the longer bolt. I turned the bracket side on to prevent loss of air flow. A washer was required to give a secure fit to the bracket and the IAT. Fit the sensor with washer in to the bracket followed by the o ring to secure it all. Tie wraps were used to tidy up the wires.
I hope this helps if you want to give it a try.

Getting the hole right was tough as I didn't have the right hole saw size in my stepped drill bit. Plus doing it on the bike made it tough to test how much exact hole size is needed. So I ended up removing the headlight bracket and using a grommet to keep it. So vibrations won't loosen it when mounted like the pictures above by @kerlow66

My own harness. When I find some time I will make a bunch of these. 4ft is too much but I think 3ft should be more than enough.
