    Some of these alternate methods could be used to blow the bike up rather than just pissing around burning the filter.
    If a thing is worth doing, it's worth doing right!:)

    Craig and Fast Eddie like this.

    Hard to remember 40 years ago, but it was (I think) a green foam rubber element that you sprayed oil on. I guess the oil was flammable. In both cases it was just a backfire through the intake that was enough to start a fire. I don't recall who made it.
