If you're not sold on its advantages you can completely bypass it and it will make no difference in how the bike runs. I'm just trying to dispel some of the myths surrounding it. I keep it and in fact I would add it to a non-Cali bike if I owned one because I consider it a plus. But don't tell the dinks in Sacramento that they've accidentally given us a plus, because it was most certainly an accident.
I would love to hear more about the possibility of adding this to a non CA bike. Could anyone volunteer to do a walk-through? Pics help the best.
