    The moderation team thought about this previously and the decision was made that it is still an Oilhead as has been pointed out. To over simplify it, we categorize K's as K's whether they have three or four cylinders. Same thing, we categorize the Oilheads as Oilheads whether they are dual spark are single and not matter the displacement.

    Gonna drop the F in the 650 section? Then there's the F800. Getting to be like some other brands.

    Yes it is. I like it. Simple. I'm guessing that the F650 section would absorb the new models with a slight name change. That new verticle twin is kind of interesting.

    Having a hexhead section would be like having separate sections for Airheads with old style valve covers and Airheads with new style valve covers.

    Having a hexhead section would be like having separate sections for Airheads with single spark plugs and for dual-plugged Airheads.

    Having a hexhead section would be like having separate sections for 8-valve and 16-valve Ks.
