i was thinking that a restrictor will cause the inlet air temp to go up .
Great that the bike is going again, but realy saddened that it will not go into productionWell I called AA performance yesterday ,they have the bike running and all is good . Now the bad new they told me they were changing the company around and probably won't be doing any manufacturing only custom work ,so no supercharger kit !!

Boost is set by the pulley ratio, but I am now using a restrictor plate to limit the amount of air that enters the engine. Also, to the earlier poster, using a restictor plate lessens the load on the Rotrex -- think of a shop-vac: when you place your hand over the top and cover the fan, what happens? It spins faster due to the fact that there is less air present that it has to move and/or compress. This is the same situation. Any additional heat introduced into the system is far less than the heat generated in the combustion chamber by compressing 17psi worth of air.A few control questions since I didn't study the thread in detail.
- How is boost control done?
- Are there any means to reduce IAT, meth injection or IC?
- How is fuel demand vs. boost controlled?
I took a quick glance through the thread and got the impression the engine went south due to over boost and no boost gauge was available. I have to say this sounds utterly silly but thanks for being open and honest to help others avoid this.
