Each to their own. If you like technical single track and hill climbing it's prob a worthwhile mod. I didn't find it any better for racing apart from fuel economy improvement.

Pete my fb page has a disturbing* video of my bike in very tech ST last week, you can feel the way it works at low throttle openings at low speeds from that;

* it disturbs me because it records me being having a 2nd gumby moment resulting in another $350 going down the gurgler when I tap a tree with my not so old pipe and destroy the pipe.

Rational could be because in the rev range and throttle opening used by most maybe the tradtional four circuit carbs have too much overlap, resulting in less than perfect A/F ratio. It only takes from being 13:1 to 11:1 to make a pretty big difference in economy.
So you just went from 100 kays a tank to 120ish...

Oh and despite popular opinion on the lean side of comfortable zone makes heaps more power...

Yep, I can follow that "rationale" Bruce.

Better atomization means better combustion means better fuel economy. Much the same philosophy as EFI/FI isn't it?

lectrons do run leaner than most on WOT high run on Dyno, JD did and carb dyno test SC, lectron, min and kel, on same bike/ day 36mm and 38mm, MX HP runs and A/F ratios posted

was interesting , but really at end of day only way to know is to purchase a lectron.

i also felt on lean side revs quicker but lacks torque and leaner=smoother even testing NEDJ,NECJ needles on the 300 you could feel it.

a good tip i got to improve ecomony was adjust float height to 7.5mm 1mm lower than stock and in last few months loop the bowl over flow tube under the airboot and down.

My issue with all the whinging on KtmTalk is that their elevation and conditions are so different to WA. We're low elevation, dry and comparatively hot. Even winter temperatures.

I have mine running bloody good, but wouldn't mind trying a richer rod closed up a bit. I'm in between detonation and excessive pipe bang.
