Anybody ever heard of this Magic tool

Factory R&D's P-38 Lighting is an advancement in carburetor performance that will work wonders for your Yamaha YZ400F and YZ426F and your KTM SX400 and SX520. The P-38, which enhances the accelerator-pump fueling system on all Keihin FCR carburetors bolts on in seconds and changes the timing and flow of gas being delivered to the combustion chamber. Factory R&D claims that the P-38 improves combustion for more power, making your bike accelerate faster, rev quicker and hit harder, enabling you to pull a taller gear out of corners. They say it also aids in starting your bike while hot or cold and eliminates Flat spots on bottom end.

Its make by factory R & D ( cant find them on the web ) would like any info if you have heard of this P-38 add on Mod

Save your money and do the BK mod. It does the exact same thing for pennies. Factory R&D has been around for years. They make jet kits, ignition advancers, and shift kits. :)

yes, they do the same thing but the BK mod does one better. It's adjustable, the P38 is NOT.

The BK mod is also a mere fraction of the cost.

And if you have the early version carb, you can do the KL/Taffy mod.

rv,

Lots of these bikes come with too much accelerator pump squirt. Enough to bog on acceleration. Recent bikes, including yours, can modify the AP squirt duration by adding a screw, the BK mod. Use the search feature. Before that, people did a variety of things, including the P38, adding wheel hubs from R/C cars, etc. Fast is right, if you have AP problems, try the AP mod. If you don't need it, neither would help.

Good luck,
