I sent jipperr a pm to see how it's holding up. I have the same tank and am wondering if there is a loss in fuel pressure when it gets to the bottom or if a fuel pump would be needed.

I thought so. Based on my observation that it appears to not have this auto decomp, what kind of cam has installed in there? Is there a reasonable way to find out?

I really like the concept of the cyclops headlight as long as it's actually as bright as they advertise. (As x 4, nice) the light is 3600 lumens and and only 20/30 watts. DC only.

It's the descent into Ardenvoir that's shut down. There are signs and personnel guarding the access. We came up Merry canyon to 7804 (great singletrack) to 7801. That's where we met them.
