6 days. It will be interesting to see what they bring. There is a lot of value their retail wise if someone was looking.

The series 50 is supposedly a good engine. Biggest complaint I've heard was vibrations from being a 4 cylinder.

I'd buy one for the right price.
They're heavy since they have a balance shaft but they're solid and reliable.
One of those would be excellent in a shorty!
