The cowl doesn't last long when the bike goes head first into a tree. No need to ask how I know. Some heavy duty velcro and it holds tight but not quite right. It's an occurrence that's had me...

I'd like to get a test ride on one of those FX bikes. Very similar to an idea I've had for a long time. Seems sort of like a hybrid trials/trails bike.

Looking through your site made it sound like you could hook up the PCV and AT, set the A/F, and just let it run. Did you do all the extra work for the individual gear maps and so you had maps saved?

I'd buy it. I'd surely want an amazing deal though. I don't think it looks terrible but I wouldn't pay over $2k for it. That's less than half what I paid for mine which I think would be fair.

If they are the type with the rubber over the prongs just pull the rubber off and they should fit. I had to do that when I upgraded my bars.
