This thing is cool! I wasn't sure about all that power, but it's growing on me. I hadn't ridden in the past 8 years since selling a XR600 and a Hawk GT to help fund a business buy. Vehicles are a Toyota Tacome pickup (4 cyl auto) and a Mazda Miata. SOOOOOOOOOOO the 650 felt like a freaking rocket at first! It STILL feels aaawfully fast for a single. Wondering if maybe it's been rejetted. It had a BD kit and pass. pegs put on by the dealership he bought the bike from. Also Pirelli MT21's put on. WOndering if they might have rejetted it then. It starts easy, first or second kick, idles nicely (never stalled while idling), will power wheelie in first gear if rolled on hard, (I'm 255lbs and tend to sit forward). Exhaust hasn't been cut and appears stock to me. Put the keyed ignition and ATK speedo/odo on tonight that looks stock and awesome and that made it official, I'm hooked on this bike.
