Like it a lot...

as a replacement for my 610. Only wish it had a six speed over a 5. Looks bullet proof, way tougher than a KTM. Gotta have the plate though, can't ride anywhere without it in Cali.

Fuel pressure check can be done with relatively inexpensive tester from auto parts store. If you have access to code reader you can see if it is throwing a code.
