My 230L has been a fantastic lightweight dual sport and city commuter. Mods include: FMF Powercore and Q4, 14/39 gearing, emissions equipment removed, air box lid modded and bike rejetted. Renthal Hi-Bend bars with Zeta handguards with integrated turn signals, DRC Edge 2 tail light, XRs Only oversized footpegs and front sprocket cover.
The bike has gone from a 268 wet weight fully gassed up to 255 pounds fully gassed up and will itcomfortably cruise 60-65mph, dependent on hills or headwinds. I shipped the bike back to my parent's house in Illinois so I'd have something to ride when I visit, but I often wish I had in handy here in California.
The main downfall of the bike is the suspension. It's fine for bumps and casual riding, but anything hard-edged is brutal both front and back. RaceTech sells a fork cartridge kit and reports say that John Hlebo can rebuild the unrebuildable rear shock and I really wish I would have performed those mods.
