I was going to get one before and asked around about them. Was told by a builder not to use it because of the high risk of running lean. He sad he's seen alot of people adjusting them and not doing plug chops to check it. The only good use I see for it is for racing to lean it out for more power on the last lap to do a sprint to the finish line.

i thought those were for if you ran lean they would put more fuel in them. or that might be the power jet or something. people run them on alky bikes.

it is more for if it starts to run lean, it should keep it from blowing up. yes, you still have to change jets for huge temp changes and new mods.
and you really take the plastic and tank off to take the carb off?

IMHO...

They are a great option for people who already understand their jetting. A bad option for anyone thinking they're going to shortcut any of the labor involved with properly jetting the rig. When atmospheric conditions change through out the day/season/etc small jetting "nudges" can be helpful. This product can make it easier to make a change that you have already identified as necessary.

Here's one big problem...remembering to change it back when atmospheric conditions change again.

Do you really change your jetting that much? I can understand huge temp changes or elevation changes but it shouldn't be like a weekly routine.

i know last year i didnt have a clue about proper jetting,i cant say i even cared.but from where i was and ended up(traveling) the bike ran good,all stock and worn out.
maybe if i can get the proper jet i wont have to keep changing em and i probably dont have to anyways,i mean its not like im going to the dunes from the mountains lol

this isnt exactly where we were,but on our way home.this was near the pine pass bc
