    Default Ktm/husky new snake oil ?

    I was looking thru there site and found there newest at least to me fueling fix, a combination of higher pressure fuel regulator and a plug in thing the tricks the air temperature sensor. Looks and sounds like snake oil to me but what do I know lol. I think itís another sales trick like his injector elbow and fuel supply stuff. The filter is well ok but there are all ready 4 filters in the system kinda overkill in my book. But at least I got a good chuckle out of it.

    Not entirely snake oil this time (what a pleasant surprise)---- Adding fuel pressure (58psi instead of 50psi) and tricking the AIR temperature sensor to register a cold intake air are actually sensible ways to increase fuel flow from bottom to top.
    -Cold-starting MIGHT run excessively rich.
    -It's unfortunate the replacement-regulator's fuel bleed-off is not returning the excess fuel back to the pump at the bottom of the tank, like stock.
    -The air temp gadget doesn't have a very significant impact, for the part's cost, but at least adjusts in the right direction.

    The blanket approach of increasing fuel flow everywhere from idle to wide open has a positive effect for making intake/exhaust mods, although it doesn't allow targeting specific zones like an EFI tuner would (or remapping ECU), in power ranges where the most fuel is needed.

    Well guess itís better then the TPS adjustment tool he was pushing. But do you think it can add enough fuel for open exhaust and intake on a 500 Iím not to sure I know increase pressure well increase flow but it can also degrade the spray pattern if to high possibly poor atomization of fuel.

    From what Ive seen, BDS came out with that method , because he couldn't get fuel tuners due to the manufacturing delays.

    I definitely didnt give it a worthy thought
