I don't use it because I don't want to hack up my fan shroud. Engine runs fine.E820, Raptor G4N, X50F/E, E620, Forza 450, and some planks.

I had to cut my shroud out but I did try my 105 both with and without the venturi, I would definitely half to say it runs better with it on. It's specifically designed to run with it installed but it still ran good without it as well.

Velocity Stack
Velocity is integral to these engines, if it came with it then you defeat let want to use it to maximize the performance of the engine. The Velocity Stack, acts as a little Mini Supercharger for these engines as well as any performance engine in the Powersport industry. Pull the air box lid of a Street Bike, and you will find Velocity stacks. Basically it Increases Velocity of the air going through the stack as well as decrease the pressure. Increases Volumetric Efficiency. For those applications that require cutting the fan shroud, make sure you make the fit tight around the base of the stack, you want as little gap as possible so you can maximize the fan shrouds purpose which is to take the air from the fan and pack that air and feed the engine. The OS 105 is one strong motor when dialed in.

Does the manual have nothing to say on the matter?

I'll add that I have the new needle holder, and can actually lean my engine out. I don't necessarily want more air going through it.

The manual tells you to install it, and cut your shroud to clear it.

Well in that case. I'd use it. Had they said "optional," then OK do whatever. But that doesn't seem to be the case.

It may run fine without it, but I doubt it's reaching it's potential at best. If you choose not to follow manufacturer recommendations, then any issues or performance problems that arise are to be expected.

Velocity stacks don't do anything that drastic. They act to smooth the flow through the carb and can be used as part of tuned intake to gain a little power through resonance.

The gains are just a few % though, nothing as dramatic as a tuned pipe, much less forced induction.

The other thing they do on hobby engines is cut down on fuel spitting out the intake, we use them on planks for that, sometimes gaining a couple minutes runtime per tank.

That's what is so sweet about ownership. You can do whatever you like with it.

But this thread is seeking advice. I'd keep it on the straight and narrow recommended path for that.

I am apparently in the minority for sure. No worries.

I have a hard enough time getting the engine and fan around the plumbing and into the shroud to worry about it.
