flywheel. advances the igniton timing. makes it spark earlier. not necessarily a good thing. ever hear of detonation?

I was also wondering if the Key helps much. Does it actually make a hp difference? ALso, is detonation really a problem with premium gasoline? Maybee gasoline with octane booster?

My friend's 400EX came alive with an offset key, so I was considering one for my blaster.

As far as the degree key and detonation go. We are running a blaster with the Vito's degree key and piston kit, ported head, K&N, Boyesen Reeds and DMC exhaust and running Cam II fuel.

No Problems Here!

Yeah ok I don't work on my stuff
BTW: Degree Key is not worth the 1hp or whatever! It's hardly even noticable! Not worth the $20 not worth the time to install either!

You sure dont pay for it!!!!!! I bet you have never split the cases on any of your bikes. Sure you can bolt on brand freaking new after market stuff, I bet you would never touch a old truck or grimmy quad

I think I agree. Considering I have been saving for 2 years now to get my own quad while others are given their quads. I would rather buy something myself anywayz, then you can truly respect it.
