Thanks for any insight.
For the most part, that's pretty much the case. The Supplementary Air Supply is intended to allow cold air into the exhaust system during over rich conditions to help burn off excess fuel. It's a smog thing but causes no harm.
On the other hand, the 1190's motor is really cluttered and could use some cleaning up... um, for race purposes only of course...
