Fresh Product: Lectron Carburetor Kit
Are you a two-stroke frother from way back? Well, get a hold of this carburetor because it’ll blow your mind!
We’ve just fitted on to our 2012 KTM 150SX rebuild project bike and can’t wait to let you know how well it performs. But for now, here’s a little background on what makes this carburetor kit unique…
Lectron has been manufacturing high performance fuel systems in the United States since 1974. Lectron is not only the first metering rod carburetor, but it was also the first flat slide carburetor design. Known for making strong, consistent power, Lectron has dominated sports like two-stroke motocross, enduro, and drag racing. We aren’t in business to be second best, and have pre-tuned kits that are ready to install ride with minimal adjusting.
Simplicity: The metering rod eliminates the need for jets, and automatically compensates for a wide range of elevation and temperature changes using air density and fuel lift. This means less time tuning and more time riding. The above video from F1 Moto has more information on how this technology works.
Adjustability: Lectrons are the only metering rod fuel systems with two circuits. This means there are no harsh transitions compared to a jetted carburetor, while still having two independently adjustable circuits for bottom end and top end. This allows you to run leaner metering rod profiles for crisp response off idle, while still making massive peak HP numbers. Have the bottom end perfect, but need more overrev to rip that holeshot? Going to ride a deep sand track and want to keep your top end cool? Simply adjust the external power jet screw.
Better fuel atomization: The fuel coming off the metering rod is in much finer particles than fuel coming out of a jet. This creates a much more efficient and even burn which helps make more power, use less fuel, decrease emissions, and help prevent fouling spark plugs. The picture below demonstrates how the fuel flows up the metering rod and fans out. When under the vacuum of an engine, the particles are much too small to photograph.
The best throttle response: Lectrons use smooth, tapered bores matched to each application to create excellent throttle response without limiting peak flows numbers and giving up horsepower. Unlike a compromised keyhole design, our products are designed to flow the most air across the widest throttle range with extremely high velocity.
No accelerator pump: Lectrons are the only carburetor with the fuel pickup tube on the engine side of the slide. That means the pickup tube is always under vacuum and full of fuel. Adjusting float height and tuning accelerator pumps for throttle response is a thing of the past.
