    I thought about this gizmo a bit and I suspect it may be an air leak.

    You know, a valve to let air flow into the manifold and lean out the mix.

    That's an interesting thought Mike. Think your right.


    Think it would be of any use at high altitudes?

    Would be a heck of a lot better marketing then it "can bring more power and save the fuel on the your motor bike". That cracks me up! The use of the word "can" makes it fluffery and gets around any truth in advertising laws.

    It could be useful to fix any rich condition. Leaning out a 2 stroke usually makes them run faster.

    Too much leaning melts the piston though.

    I suspect there will be a lot of "go fast" boys with slag in their jugs from overuse of this device - :)

    That's what I said. It seems like any time somebody buys the snake oil, they end up needing elbow grease later.
