Up top there’s a photo of it installed in the bike. It’s in the right direction. Just seems crazy to me that a bike with 46 hours would have cam chain or tensioner issues. Lesson learned! Replace everything!

I agree with you on this one. They do look different! I’m still waiting for a response from Vertex on whether or not I have the right piston.

The great thing about Lanier is if you do have an issue he will make sure it gets resolved and you’re feeling comfy. One conversation with Walther will have you wanting to drop your stuff off with him.
