MSX-remove siphon tubes?
How are the siphon tubes held in the nozzle?
What is the best way to remove them?
Is there any rpm or speed gians?

msx what? 140-150
are you looking for more speed?

yes msx 140, speed gain would be the goal.

What year 140?
If you have an 03, you can run the
04 ride plate
6 degree wedge
Add a gasket under the cylinders
Be sure your TPS is seeing as near 100% as possible
I'll see if I can remember more later BUT what year is it?

Thanks guys, It's a 2003 msx, I ride with several other msx's,
they are all they same at top speed, I just need a little bit on top.
I will try remove the siphon tubes.

The 04 ride plate and 6 degree wedge will get you 11/2 to 2 MPH. The syphon tubes aren't going to get anywhere near that and you're taking away a safety item that would be real nice to have if you ever wind up with a water leak.

If your TPS is reading somewhere in the 80% range you will net roughly 3/4-1MPH with an adjustment seeing closer to 100%.

I agree. Although the pump bailers only work while in motion, the '03 MSX has no electric bilge, leaving the pump bailers your only way of evacuating water. You won't even notice an increase.

You know.............if you think about it the bailers actually help performance by removing warm air out of the engine bay. Minute, to say the least but every little bit help right??
Don't the syphons work as long as the engine is running? I think beerdart says it still creates a suction as the water passes the nozzles so even at idle speeds, neutral or reverse it should work??
