It works

Holy shnikes! I just finished installing the F800S cams, and the thing works! No knocking, no backfiring, no drama, except for a bit of excitement on my part :shog. The exhaust note is more crisp,...

It's a $100 experiment that I've been wanting to test (that shouldn't turn into a $1000 failed experiment), and I won't be pushing it. I can always take the cams off and still have the PC-V.

Snowmobile Mitts

For winter, I use Arctiva Comp 6 mitts (always preferred mitts). They're fairly flexible, and have really good thumb movement for me. I'll ride all winter and most the rest of the year with these.
