    Default Mikuni Carb Gizmos

    I'm setting this in the form of a poll, but hopefully discussion will ensue as well. Got a couple new sleds (older, used models) added to my inventory this year and I'm starting the typical tinkering process. I've used Dial-A-Jets before and like them, but there are several newer carb gizmos out that seem to have appeal. So what have folks used on their Mikuni round slide carbs that they either like or dislike?

    Used twin dial a jets on a Skidoo 670 with twin 44mil carbs. Made a huge difference. Have used a DAJ on many 2 strokes with very good results. Used UFO's on a 98 (?) T-cat. woke it way up. Had a t-cat with the tempa flow for awhile, worked well. All these products are like anything else, not miracles but with a little tuning they do improve performance.

    You've left the best one off of your list. I have gone through UFO's, VariFlows and TempaFlows... the best is the AATAC made by the same guys as the Vari and TempaFlows. Holzman Engineering.

    This one I haven't heard of. What's the skinny on it?

    Automatic Temperature and Altitude Carburetor Compensator
    It automatically (rather than the manual Tempa-Fow) adjusts for all temperature and elevation changes up to 8000 feet.

    Tempa Flows are pure magic on carbed Polaris machines. I've had a few. I tried an ATACC and never saw an advantage over the Tempa Flow so I removed it and put the Tempa Flow back in. I never needed carb compensation in my Yamahas or SkiDoos. Only Polaris.

    I rode an 02 RMK with the ATACC installed over the past weekend and it was fantastic at -30. Fired right up when dead cold and snapped nicely all over the power band.
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed
