iCAT

I've been reading about these lovely little things called iCAT that plug into the top of your sparkplug, and do wounderous thing for engine performance, 2 or 4 stroke. Anyone got one????? if so do they do what they claim????

I would want to see some independently tested dyno figures before I took too much notice of their claims. I have seen many things like this come and go over the years, offering big horsepower increases for 5 minutes worth of work, none seem to last on the market very long.

Stick to the V8 vege juice.

Laughable...

Anyone thinking of buying one should just send me money. I will tell them whatever they want to hear.

"Roll up, Roll up......Buy one of Tbones patented iDog spark improvers....GUARANTEED to deliver almost 5 h.p extra (well 5 is closer to zero than 20!) ...only $249.99...not tested on animals...dispose of packaging thoughtfully...read instruction manual before use...bill posters prosecuted...use no hooks...consult a physician before usage..."

Yep, I'd be looking for some INDEPENDENT proof 1st!
5 h.p.?? OMG, there must be some AWEFULLY gullible people out there in consumer land. Anyone like to guess just how hard it is to get an extra 5 h.p.? It just isn't as easy as bolting on a little gizmo to the top of a spark plug cap! Go the V8 juice... :BH

If you would buy one of these you may be interested in a nice block of absolute waterfront land going cheap, inspection by appointment only, appointments made right after I check the tide chart.

PMSL Tide Chart!

Spend the moula on riding tuition. That will be of greater gain then 5hp (claimed)

Remember, Power is NOTHING without Control!

If you want a 5HP increase all acrosss the rev range, I hear that the DBW stickers add an instant 5HP, and you can get like 50 or more for the price of the iCAT.

But there's an article in the latest Australasian Dirt Action Bike Magazine (I can't tell the difference between the two any more) where they said that this device made a massive difference to the performance of their test bike and "shave(d) seconds off my lap times by consistently carrying higher corner speeds." Wow!

Please don't tell me they're just saying that because they're selling advertising space in the magazine?

Jim, i think you may have answered your own question.
