@Capitol, same situation as you, I had the Strada mod for a long time and once I got used to it, the control was excellent. I have the full LM954 kit sitting on my shelf still, never got around to installing it and the guy who bought my machine wasn't interested in the update

ttle off-topic, anyone know what the RRP is for the new cool touch wand? I had a local installer get a price for me was almost $US900!


I got a quote of roughly the same and when I called LM USA to inquire about the parts, they said that the availability of the new steam arms was very limited.

I ordered the kit and LM said that the machine neede to be reprogrammed. Did you have to do this after the modification?

Could someone post or link to some shots being pulled with this upgrade in place?

I have seen many Slayer shots but can't find any newer GS3/MP shots being pulled with a technique that shows the benefits of this upgraded system.

Thanks very much.

Finish!



I did as You told us, and thanks for that!!
But I have one question:

Is normal that when I start to brew (move from right to left but a little and little movements) and before a full open valve (before full brew pressure - handle to left side) I have water comes out from exaust tube?!
And than when I reach 3bar , than 4bar or 5bar - also some amount of water goes to exaust tube ,till I move to full pressure (to left side).


Thanks
