wow.. i finally got the 650 on the road ( i out on new rims an d17's on it and upgraed the brake rotor to make it an asy swap between commuter bike and part tiem dirt bike) wow... holy torwque! i mean i went for one lap around the block but wow! i found myself startign in 2nd mostly so as to not pop the front wheel some small issues as i have to get it "inspected" by RI 1- that exhaust is loud( stock) anyway to get it temporary quieter to apss inspection(90db) and then a more lng term solution with not getting a new exahust? loud exhaust = unwelcome attention from town cops 2- horn its not working.. mayeb a new one or check the wiring 3- the biggest issue. turnsignals/ headlight. at normal idle with no headlight on the turnsignals/ brake light work great however...... with the "low" headlight brake light is not strong enough and the turn signals barely work( long pause between flashes) i plan on gettingthe stator rewound , wil that aid in the scenario?? but the biek is still wow...!!!
