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"!

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