Lectron Fuel Systems - Now Available from Tucker
Tucker Powersports has announced the addition of Lectron Fuel Systems to its list of offered brands. Best known for making strong, consistent power in sports like two-stroke motocross, enduro and drag racing, Lectron is no stranger to the 4-stroke market, and H-D kits in particular.
The American company began in 1974 by developing what were then two carburetor firsts: the flat slide and the flat metering rod. "Today, Lectron continues to build upon these innovations and supplies both professional racers and weekend warriors with technology that improves torque, horsepower and fuel economy while adjusting for atmospheric conditions."
In 2010, Lectron acquired new ownership and since that time has expanded its product line and refined its production processes. "They now focus on the total customer experience, delivering a superior product while providing world-class service."
Lectron carburetors are known for their simplicity, with no jets, and what is said to be the least parts of any carburetor. They compensate automatically for a wide range of elevation and temperature changes and have the only metering rod fuel system with two circuits. "This means no harsh transitions compared to a jetted carburetor, while still having two independently adjustable circuits for bottom end and top end. You can run leaner metering rods for crisp response off idle while making massive peak horsepower numbers."
Lectron says its technology achieves better fuel atomization as the fuel coming off the metering rod is in much finer particles than fuel coming out of a jet. "This creates a much more efficient and even burn, which helps make more power, uses less fuel, decreases emissions and helps prevent fouling spark plugs."
The smooth, tapered bore design creates the "fastest airspeeds of any carburetor, which means improved throttle response. Unlike a choked down keyhole design, Lectron products are designed to flow the most air at the highest velocity and are the only carburetors with the fuel pick-up tube always under vacuum (on the engine side of the slide) - it’s always full of fuel, and adjusting float height for throttle response is a thing of the past."
