    I wasted $20.00 on a boost bottle that was advertized as being aluminum. When i got it, it was nothing more than some pvc plastic with an aluminum sticker covering it.
    more imprtantly, it did absolutly nothing when i hooked it up.
    boost bottles have been proven to work (ktm uses them on dirtbikes), but there are certain things that must be done to get them to actually work.
    Thinks like placement, bottle size, and where the tube is connected.
    In my opinion, don't waste your money on a boost bottle for a bicycle engine unless you just want the look of having a boost bottle.
    In my opinion, they aren't good for anything but looks.
