Good day from Oz!

The fuel hose from the gas tank connects onto the carb via a 90 deg elbow fitting?

Is this elbow fitting on the carb a push fit, or screwed? Or other??? How can I move the angle of this fitting? :excuseme:

I guess you will ask so I may as well tell ya! Some Enduro rider out here has put a fuel catalyst on his bike that apparently aids combustion and help lube the engine and it was in the mag recently out here. Probably as mush use as a dead dingos donger.

Just wondering...

The tube is a press fit with 3 rubber O-rings. :excuseme:

Australasian Dirt Bike Nov 05.

Apparently strapped on to Heffermans bike for the Finke Desert race as a trial.

Better combustion = bettter fuel ecconomy and power.

Don't know if its any good other than the mag report, although seen the small unit still attached to Heffo's bike in a recent mag artical.

I am on a two day training course with him 3/4 July so will find out more then!!!!

I saw that, it puts tin into the fuel insetad of using leaded petrol.
That little thing (15cms long!) weighed over 1kg.

You can get the same effect just by using valve saver fluid, which contains the lead replacement metals such as tin.
