IV.   Discussion
      The applicant submitted t e s t data f o r the Honda k i t .          According t o
      the applicant a l l Martek 440 k i t s have the same electronic c i r c u i t r y .
      They a r e only s l i g h t l y d i f f e r e n t i n physical configuration t o f i t the
      d i f f e r e n t motorcycles.     I t was therefore unnecessary t o repeat the
      tests.

      The v a r i a b i l i t y of the t e s t data between the baseline and the device
      did n o t exceed permissible l i m i t s , therefore no CVS dynamometer
      t e s t s a r e needed.

             1.     Eliminates need f o r cleaning and adjustment.

                    i s w i t h points i n the conventional ignition system.
      B.     Claims abstracted from submitted advertising:
             1.     Micro second timing.
