I don't remember where I saw it, but somewhere I read that the UCE had hydraulic valves.

Does this mean no valve adjustments?

I wish they would hurry up and git-er-done.  ;D

Well, if the hydraulic lifters work the way they should, that would mean that no valve adjustments would be required. That would be a nice feature to reduce maintenance, if all works out as planned.

The engines displayed in Germany in February had hydralic lifters. Once clearances are set on the lifters, it should not need attention for a long time.

This engine is being produced for the european market this year, USA will get some of them next year.

Very interesting.

Good to know about the lifters. I guess I'll have to be patient and wait for the new bike to hit the market.

Ralph: The Harley Babe is there. Just takes a little looking.

RE1 said this one is for Europe only, does that mean we won't see any RE Babe's in the US  :'(

Yep I was distracted too  :o
Geez, I gotta go back now and take another GOOOOD look!  'Course, the REs sell themselves, but an RE babe wouldn't be bad either 'specially if she had good classic "lines". ;D
