looks awesome, I was using a 3.0 Z3 stick in the sportster but I switched to the 2.5 Z3 one. A bit higher but it's made gear changes a lot better.

This was due to two cold starts in a row, it struggled a little to fire so the engine just pumped the extra fuel out. It’s nothing to worry about as these were not normal stating conditions.
