    empty catch can

    After my last 2 rides, my catch can has been dry. Anyone else experience this? While on the topic, what hose are you guys running for the catch can? Anything special?

    Do you have a afr gauge? Is your ski stock?

    My catch can has very little to nothing in it when drained after each ride. I use the OEM hose cut to fit. My AFR is set to 13-14 when for idle and cruising and the recommended 11.8 or so when WOT.

    That's good. The less the better.

    Mostly Stage II mods. No AFR gauge. ET 137 Wheel.. Ski was tuned in May 2010 by Erik @ Speedfreeks. I haven't tested AFR since then, which is probably a good place to start. It just struck me as odd seeing I used to get something in the can last season and the beginning of this one.

    Get an afr gauge, one of the best things i've done for peace of mind

    Edit: if you want something simple get a innovate mtx-l it's awesome

    Same here. Rarely anything in it. Cooler temperatures = leaner. How warm was it when you were getting drainage?

    I drained mine for the first time in a month yesterday after the ride. I had LESS than a teaspoon in it. The less the better.
