Rubber air filter strip - Contrary Empirical Evidence
Since I had the air fuel ratio digital meter hooked up to the bike I pulled off the air filter rubber strip
everyone talks about. There was no significant change in digital readings without the rubber strip in place. This digital meter is very sensitive and measures in gradients of 10ths. If I were to get more air into the filter at speed or at idle it should change my fuel to air ratio readings, and this simply was not the case. Thus I have to conclude pulling the rubber strip is a placebo effect.
