Will do once I get it back together. It's currently in pieces in the garage as I install lighting harnesses to make it road legal. I already have the plate.

The dealer I purchased from is nearly as tall as I. He has a FE570 also. So far we have both gone with tall factory seat and bar risers. I am additionally going with Pivot Pegz to drop peg height a bit plus allow rotation.

Then there's the usual suspension tweaks required. New springs and valving. I'm leaning towards LT-Racing for the work as they're somewhat local.

For the limited amount of time I've spent bimbling about the neighborhood so far, it's very light and very fast. Once moving it seems much more like a 250 or 125 2-stroke than a nearly 600cc thumper. That mass centralization works in real life.
