Rapid Bike EASY (AF Module)
I've got a 2018 R NineT Classic and have just placed an order for a set of Remus headers to go with my Akrapovic single silencer. As many (not all) would agree, when modifying the intake and or exhaust, something should really be done to assist fueling with the more free-flowing air / exhaust, especially given the Euro 4 bikes tend to run on the lean side due to emissions.
I've done a fair bit of reading across this and other forums regarding booster plugs, AF-Xied modules, Re-Maps and Piggy-back modules (AKA: PC5, RB, etc) and weighed up what would work best for me. Given I'm still well within my warranty period, I quickly ruled out the re-map and more complex piggy back modules, which left me with a Booster Plug or AF-Xied. After even more reading and weighing up both camps, I was leaning towards the AF-Xied side as I believe (from what I've read only) that the BP works initially, but is slowly adjusted out of the equation by the factory ECU. So I was set on the AF-Xied. Given I'd need a twin AF-Xied module for our boxer, the price for such a simple module was more that I was willing to pay. So after a little more searching around, I came across what I ended up purchasing, the Rapid Bike EASY!
The Rapid Bike Easy essentially works the exact same way the AF-Xied does, but in a much neater package and at around half the price. It's a simple plug and play device (easy to remove in warranty situations), no cutting, waterproof connectors, and an easy to follow guide stating the optimal settings for your bike.
I'm yet to use the module as I'm still waiting on the headers to arrive, but will report back once all done.
Below are a few photos of the unit. Also note the same module can be used on a number of other BMW models, including all 1200 series boxers through to 09-2018 S1000RR's.
If anyone's used one of these before, I'd be grateful if you'd chime in and let me know your opinions, findings, tips etc.. Or if people have used similar units that have any useful info - that would be great too.
