Power up

Recommended Posts

Anyone use a power up carb insert by "scary fast"? I would like some feedback on this to see if it even works. Thanks

It sounds like a 5 year old named it, they probably designed it too. Looks about as effective as the super duper vortex air maximizer tornado hurricane super eco friendly edition insert thinger sold by multiple companies to help boost your car mpg and hp. I could think of few dozen things to waste a hundred dollars on. Like William said get your carb setup right, its a lot cheaper.

To be fair, the device does accomplish something. If a carb is not adjusted right, they make jetting and AP setup less critical on the first 1/2 of throtle position. It still does not run as crisp as a properly setup carb but better than one where it is off. It kills peak power as it reduces carb throat size a few mm and adds excessive turbulence at wide openings. These side effects at not geneerally noticed by most riders. However, why slow your bike down AND spend money to do it when the same money could be spent on getting the jetting set up correctly.

It does not make more power (the device name is very misleading).
