Hey Vinnie.
Welcome aboard.
Like the mods you and Paul have done to your 650.
Looking forward to seeing her in person.

Thanks guys B)
Hey Rob i dont know if you remember how the bike looked like last year. I got bored of the look and decided to refresh it up. It sits about 3" off the ground but clears our speed bumps.
The headlight is a knockoff of a Suzuki gs ordered out of a catalog but not as big as a original. Think it was around 50ish bucks.

Yes Vinnie, I remember what she looked like.
For all others, here is the before:





I was wondering if she would clear the speed bumps and such.
I need to be careful when I run with the chin scoop.
I've hit a few times, and knocked it off once.
My current set up:

You got to ride closer to the curb when you go over speed bumps. I try to stay on the highways, smoother ride.
The swinger is a jmc 3" extended made for the 650. It had a bottom brace I chopped off.
The cr's are 29mm. I been trying to set up for the past year. She runs a bit rich. I'm still running a battery it's mounted on the frame by the swingarm just under the pods. It's a small little shorai battery.

Good work on eliminating everything under seat and cleaning that area out. It really mkes it "just the basics, ma'am"!

Took a rip to Montreal this past weekend. Bike felt and handled real good, ass feels a pinch soar. Planning on riding out to L.A this Aug. hopefully the seat won't kill me.

Met up with Vinnie again.
Gave his bike a little test fit.
Next time I'll have to take it for a real test. ;)
