Hi guys! Well, I just put a deposit on a 07 650L. This is about my 20th bike - everything from 70s on up to 1800s, both two and four strokes. I had an XL600 back in the 80s or early 90s (can't remember!) and really enjoyed it. Just happened to mosey into the Honda shop and there she was! Had to get it and relive the memories. I'm curious about those air deflectors next to the tank that divert the air to the engine. I don't remember the older models having them and I think I'd prefer the appearance without them. However, I know these bikes tend to run hot to begin with and I don't want to cause a problem:prof: . Any thoughts/info?
