I ride the thing hard, engine has been great so far. Brakes are great, good clutch. The rear shock was stiff for a week but it broke in great. It has a rotary tranny, which is wierd getting used to but love it now. (shifts quick as hell, no prob finding nuetral)
The plastics are kinda shitty but they are on all the chinese bikes, i just them off and reinforced them with a couple extra screws and they are very strong now.
The only complaint seems to be what everyone says. 1st gear is so damn short and the bike is never out of 3rd and 4th (plenty of power) It just needs a bigger front sprocket cuz with the power it just tops out too fast. (stock they got 14 tooth fronts)
The best part is i got the bike for $599 shipped and so far no money in it. (the tires could use replaced with more aggressive ones if u wanna race it, but again all the chines ones do)

It has rear disc, not drum, and no electric start (good)
I think the real difference in teh 800 vs 600 dollar bikes is that someone is makin an extra $200 somewhere along the line. I have seen a bunch of other bikes and cant tell a real diff.

If there is a Christams close out sale, you may want to be careful.

If someone would like to prove me wrong, be my guest. But if we are only going off of pictures and say-so from owners, I am never going to believe a bike under a grand is worth anything. Let me ride one for a day and I might just prove my point.
