Re: Rev limiter

Mine too doesn’t flash when first turned on even though it’s a recon from SAV also mine would also randomly cut out, it took a while to find but it was a bad connection on the white connector block from the ignition resistor under the dash, worth looking at, it had obvious burn marks on the wire to ...

Re: Would You Purchase A Brand New Air Cooled Pinz?

I think you'd have to go the full fuel injection, closed loop cat etc as I'm sure most countries have strict emission controls on new vehicles.... fantasized about squeezing a Cummins crate motor in mine 🤔😍

I have to kind of slouch down to see under the windshield header at stop lights, etc. I would love to have some modern seats, but can’t afford to sit any higher... Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro I don’t think mine make you sit any higher than stock...
