i wonder if it would work on the spring in my rancher.....i wondered this after i read the post on the rinny myself.
i cut the up end so it rests against the metal cover and not the rubber diaphragm. the mod does work very well tho i say as now i can't wheelie at all on the driveway because when i mash the throttle it just spins the rear tires off in second gear.I'll have to try it in the dirt soon.I can't believe such a simple mod works so well.
it's not that you get more Hp at all but just a much more responsive throttle ya know??my rancher had great power before but it is now really responsive to hitting the throttle now after clipping the much did you cut off and is your jetting dead on? I know my jetting is right on and maybe that's what made it seem so noticable.
