Well as some of you know I bought this baby back in October last year. I bought it off a marine who barley rode it, and was about to have his first kid. I stole it for the price of $5,800. This is back when you couldn't even find a used one or hardly a new one in the dealers.
So far she has been great. Minor issues here and there, but its basically been my daily commuter for a solid 10 months. Bike still has stock chain,spocket,etc... still on stock seat (really need a new one), only on its 2nd set of tires. And has run great other then the R/R and Stator issue I had. With those things sorted out its been great. I weigh 225lbs and it will still lift the front tire in first with me on doing power pulls onto the highway (lots of fun).
Gets a constant 41-43mpg doing 95% highway riding at 70-85MPH. She has gone on 3hour one way trips with me and was just fine cruising on the highway.
Power wise it just has a removed intake screen, drop in K&N, and modded Danmoto mufflers. Stock tune still. Love this bike!
