sometimes...things like this...and turbulators, and yost power tubes...ad nauseum...can help correct tuning issues

in a well tuned bike with good running exhaust...they are just an obstruction

Yah those things are worthless. Pretty much the point of thoes things is just to make the avrage bike owner feel like he or she is able to preform performance work on their bike.

They just get in the way of a good jet set up.

I don't know guys, when my bike was stock, I added a Yost tube, and picked up, as I recall, 3 hp. Last summer after going to 95" we were at 88 hp, added the tube (this time on a Mikuni) and picked up 6 hp! I'm a big fan of Yost power tubes. Funny, stock, I got 40 mpg regardless of how I rode, with 95," I get 45-52 mpg, depending on how much twist I'm using.

The other side of this is that ANY restriction in the airpath is going to hurt overall flow. That's why things like nitrous nozzels or bars actually hurt performance slightly when they're not spraying.

It's a toss up. I'd like to see someone do some dyno testing though.

both are right...but good flowin heads dont need any fixes, and a well tuned carb, with those heads is as good as it gets, id reserve that thing for shitty set of stock panheads, and a wore out zenith carb that cant be rebuilt and shoots gas out in big fat drops...on this rig it might help atomize fuel

heres a dyno test...eddie trotta velocity stack....with or without the screen...6 hp

I have the answer to this one.
I can't find the link but I read some tests on this and what happens is that fuel actually condenses on to the fins of those things at low speed causing obvious problems. There is one and only one rpm spot where you will get a slight increase in power, and that is what the assholes use to justify their ads. But you will love this. Go to this link, read the ad and make sure you look at the picture of the device at the bottom of the ad. Then click on "CLICK HERE TO SEE" about halfway down in blue. You are going to crack up.

Also, the Yost is a completly different concept and does work.

I went with a Yost power tube instead of an atomizer back in 1990 and had no regrets. Might wanna look into a Yost before deciding.
