Actually to come clean I do have one on order. Figured I would try it and see what all the hoopla is about.

I read an article in dirt rider(feb issue-page 152)how the power now "absolutely transformed the yz250f better response,power and better starting" :) :confused:Might be worth the try no info on 426.

can you, or someone else having power now make more pics, front and back to see how exactly to make it. Is the plate leveled on the back and how much does the plate project in front? what is the plate thickness?

Ymaben had the right idea, put the thing on the dyno with the Powernow and without.

Kevin, "ride free or die"?

Does that mean I get killed if I pay gate fees in NH?

Yes, but maybe you must make dyno tests opening the throttle by half, as powernow is not working at WOT. You can use long throttle stop...

Not sure if it will appear at our test track or not, but a group of my riding buddies have a 3 mile off-road desert loop that we are riding at during these winter months. We all have our individual "Overall Best Time" around that loop, and I am heading back out there on Saturday. If any of my times comes in under 7:41, I know what I am going to attribute it to. If I come up longer than 7:41, maybe the this new device did nothing

So Brandon, What was the result? :)

7:31 is now my fast time... :)

But, my buddy Nick has thrown down a 7:24, so I am still working on it.

Hey... it might be snake oil offering nothing more than a placebo effect. However, the JAMESNOW version is practically free! So, its like chicken soup for a cold. It may not help, but it damn sure isn't gonna hurt!
