Whatever happened to this company? Remember wanting to get them for out 2 strokes years ago but never forked out the cash. Seems as if they've gone out of business or something now but IIRC they had great reviews!

I'm assuming the GET stuff is probably better now anyway?

Never had one but I remember reading about this thing in an ancient Transworld issues. Link here:

There is a review here on vital that says eventually the name changed to "iBooster"

All references to a website seem to be a dead link. Here is a Facebook page that looks somewhat active:

Motosport.com has it listed, but says they no longer carry it:

This Australian online outlet claims to carry the system:

I forgot about these! I had one in my 2006 YZ250F, things have certainly changed a lot in the last 12 years! I cant say that i noticed the type of gains that the transworld article highlighted however nothing negative either (maybe i'm just a poor test rider).

It didn't work is why it didn't stick around it claimed to enhance spark. But unless you increase the spark at the real source the stator. You basically just ended up buying an expensive spark plug wire extension.
