Default STIC Super Torque

Hi Gasgas members, just wondering if anyone has any experience with these http://www.sticsupertorque.com/index.html
Seems to be a lot of good reviews however I cant find anything about the altitude compensation. Some are saying that it adjusts for this. Anyone able to provide any insight??
thanks
Josh

Looks like one of the many gizmos that add air to the fuel vapour stream for better atomization. Mostly smoke in mirrors, but it might create a combination that helps some motors.

Just spend the money on gas and ride more.

"Note:*due to the intense power created by the use of the STIC Max racing metering block, and Max STIC tube; the engine should be in good working order to withstand the STIC's tremendous increase in horsepower, torque, and acceleration. Due to intense torque increase; it recommended that you consider using a high pressure gear box lubricant such as "Oil Extreme." For your gear box protection, a two-ounce bottle of*Oil Extreme" will be included in each purchase of the STIC metering block that includes the STIC needle jet tube"

. . . Ok forgive me in advance; but only in America can they write such marketing bollocks.

The main testimonial is from a chap with a 25yr old carb. Replaced the bit that does all the metering and wears the most. Apparently it went better after. Go figure.

There are only a handful of riders who use the full power of a modern 250/300 and most of them just jet the bike properly. The rest of us can live with a burble here and there so long as it is while we are out riding

I did a three day ride from sea level to 2000+m and didn’t change the jetting- it was only slightly fat on the third day but I was tired by then lol
