Jolly well done and a big thumbs up for the little man in a shed, but it's just that most people will have actually heard of Akrapovic.

! Wasn't "Pops" Yoshimura by any chance, was it?
[/QUOTE]
No, just a talented Englishman who operates his one man business from very modest premises supplying a niche market which Akrapovic attempted to enter a few years ago.

Scriminger claim they came up in 2001 with Pulse Jet Ignition, BrianUK posted a link to the patent and
it was filed in 1980, assignee Nissan Motor Company.
What do we make of that ?

"Also for what it's worth I know someone who took on and beat Akrapovic working in little more than a Garden Shed."

Seeing as all major companies including JCB and Apple apparently have their origins in a garden shed or garage, this statement regarding a talented hero is all rather enigmatic and worthy of some expansion! Wasn't "Pops" Yoshimura by any chance, was it?

The name Scriminger rings a bell from about 17 years ago when I was briefly in the BMW Club, owning at the time an old R65 Monolever. I'm fairly sure they advertised in the Club "Journal", nothing common like a mag for those chaps, as something like Scriminger Engine Developements, but I never read anything adverse about them in the aforementioned Journal which certainly wasn't short of complainers about most things. Bearing in mind that back then it was quite the thing to "Twin plug" certain Bike's heads, my mates 250 Ducati and of course the old "Airhead" R100 BMW,is it not possible that something like this might work on old fashioned technology.

10 mph faster at 5000 rpm? Maybe the clutch had stopped slipping........

WRT the original thread I have no doubt that the whole thing is snake oil and that Simon of London is merely a shill for the scammers.

The mind does play tricks.

I once let a friend have half a tank of leftover race fuel for his V50.

Once home, he called back, enthusiastic, saying the bike was now going 10mph faster at 5000rpm
in top.

Then, I HAD to explain...

Just saying like.

I contacted Steve Scriminger who makes them in the UK and he gave me a set.

Now why would someone give you £120 just like that?
