If there is anyone out there who has not changed their suspension oils, they should do so soon. The factory oils are garbage. Also there has been reports of rust in the forks. One other problem to report are stuck thermostats.

I personally have not really had any problems other than the thermostat sticking open, and about all that caused was slow warm-up. The 650 is a bit softly sprung for MX duty. On the other hand there's a ton of easy to use power. My pig climbs hills effortlessly, and handles surprisingly well for its weight. If you are considering buying one I reccomend you check out www.e groups.com , they have over 4000 posts on the 650.
