Efi models have hydraulic lifters, so you don't have to adjust them.

TWIN EFI models have the hydraulic lifters....

Single cylinders with or without EFI still need valve adjustments

twins are made by polaris, and made in the USA (although i think the new twins will be made in mexico)

the singles are outsourced and built by a company called Fiji. Which is why there is a difference.

johnnyjaws, i might be able to help you from the service manual, but i need a VIN# to be able to pull it up on my computer
