Ok, i picked up my new to me and practually new 2006 with 490 miles. This was the first item I bought off ebay, the bike is perfect, not a scratch on it, it was as clean as you would get from a dealer. The previous owner had just changed the oil, and had 2 extra oil filters, plus a binder with the service manual, the owners manual and the parts manual. Wow. I rode the bike, first time, it was fine, it seamed kind of peppy for such a small engine, what am I saying, my first bike was a Honda 55 trail back in the 60's, so I gladly bought it. I loaded it on my trailer, easy as pie. I love the light weight. Got it home and went for a ride, after awhile I felt that I was a giant on a miniture motorcycle, very different from my V-Strom where I was a small guy on a big bike. The bike hit 63 mph on speedo, so thats about right, I had a good ride, and decided right away it's not a long distance bike, except maybe off road, then it will shine. First gear off road with me standing on the pegs was too slow, so I have a JT 47 tooth sprocket on the way, I tried to find Fastway pegs that would fit, but no luck so I have a set of Chinese crap on the way. Also when standing on the pegs the bars are a little low so maybe ATV high bars will work. I also ordered a white Clark tank. Next will be a Cycleracks, add my trunk and soft bags and I'm set,... maybe a cam down the road. Anyone know where to get a folding shift lever?
