Cool, I never saw it before either.  Dave swears it all gets through
eventually, but I don't know...;-)

I've only been around a few SVOs, but I've never seen an early model yet
that the solenoid was working right on.  Mine never did, Chris Roth's
85 didn't either.  I don't know the answer, because I just bypassed it
and never worried about it again.  I think your boost gauge might be
off though (or else mine is).  Mine went to 13 or 14 as soon as I
bypassed the solenoid.
