    explain the tempaflow.

    OK. So I have not found one bad thing about the Holtzman tempaflow, everyone loves them, but I also can't find anything or really understand what I'm going to gain from it. Can someone explain to me why I would do the tempaflow vs's just jetting. I ride in WI and the U.P. but is it really worth the $180 when I can just jet for an average temp, and save myself about $150?

    I could never get the jetting right with mine. Carb that it hooked to always ran leaner than the other. Removed it, problem solved. Not a believer here. It's in the pile o stuff somewhere.

    How much is it going to save you? Maybe 1-2$ per fill up? You'll probably never make it up. If there continual problems with your jetting, then something else is wrong.

    Well your actually the first guy I've heard that didn't like it. Good to hear actually. If its really "all that", why didnt the factories put them on from stock? How did you reseal the carb after you took it off?

    Besides saving money, you can get an increase in fuel economy that will get you home in a pinch. There's more to sledding than $$.

    I remember reading somewhere that Holtzman went to a manufactor with it. But they didnt want to pay what he wanted. Also there were a few models that had a carb compensator on them from the factory. Most were mountain sleds.

    ok so can anyone explain how it actually works? Like what are the internal workings and what the vacuum from the carb does to help? Id like to know exactly what this thing is doing before i buy one.

    The unit uses a vacuum source from the top of the carb and applies varying amounts of vacuum to the float bowls. As the temperature changes, the amount of vacuum to the float bowl changes. More vacuum to the float bowl will result in a leaner mixture, as the temperature gets warmer the tempaflow applies more vacuum to the float bowls and leans out the mixture.

    So what are the failure points? Whats more likely to fail on this unit? Aren't these units kinda fail safe with having the jetting set for -20F? So if any part fails it would just run rich right?
