You take a lot things all wrong. I hope that's not a habit with you. See post #145.

I agree that is Bad Ass!!!!


Please tell us.....

Have you been happy with the 685 kit? Do you see a significant difference? Why the 685 instead of the 705 kit?


Thanks!

08' with 32k miles on her so far.

Just moved to a location that requires an hour commute every day.... so the miles are going to start adding up quickly.

Everything is stock. That being said I do have a 658cc kit (not 685) on standby. I may still just throw that on the bike this winter even though the stock components are doing great. My bike should hit 50k by then maybe.

Just rolled up 20000km on my 2010 model.. Don't use it as a daily rider. But have done a couple of "Outback" trips & a couple of 1000mile (1744km ) in 24hrs. " who said their arse gets sore after a 500km day "

Mine is stock standard..... I think they are great value for money...

2012 bought new in May, 6,700 miles so far.

Now that it's starting to get cold I'll be tearing into it soon to do the doo and the valves.
