I'm embarrassed by my short squirt length
Posted February 19, 2002 - 10:01 PM
What is the 2 - 3 second squirt robbing me of? How is this bad and why is a shorter squirt length better for my bike? What is the benefit?
Why would it be so long in the first place?
Where do I find these small electric blocks?

If no hobby stores are around, this wheel collar looks exactly like a drill bit stop, which is easy to find in any hardware store.

it improves MPG. you only need the APJ to cover the delay in time between the air reacting and the fuel reacting. this is less than .5 seconds and only happens in first or second gear.
you only return the throttle to closed in first and second gear.
your bike gets all the fuel it needs after .5 seconds AND in all the other gears.

a rich bike or a lean bike use more fuel than a bike that's properly carburated.
a properly carburated bike produces more power and if you are bent on riding at 40mph for instance you will need say, 25bhp. if you now produce that power from a smaller throttle opening you will be saving fuel this way as well.
do you know that i'm the only rider who has even dared to ride without the APJ (gosh
) and the bike goes for hours on a whiff of fuel. those poor KTM boys over on orange can't get 60 miles from a tank, then again they steadfastly refuse toi do the "Taff mod" citing teutonic superiority whankers

You are right though in that you get great milage without the APJ...but no oomph as described many times before.
