About to pull the trigger
As you can see I am a new member. I have negotiated what I feel is a good price for a 2015 650 ABS LT ($7500) new out the door. I have a couple of questions before I seal the deal tomorrow or Saturday.
First, is that a good price, new (0.3 miles). I will want this bike to do about 70/20 pavement. Having said that, what tires should be mounted on the bike before I take possession.
Second, what are the known issues of the 2015 bike? and if there are any issues with ECU programming what version do I want on the bike before I take delivery>
Third, I am short. 5'8" with a 30" inseam. Will the ergonomics suite me? If not, what should I do. Lowering links? peg relocators? Bar risers?
I require heated grips and I use a heated vest. What is the excess OEM stator output if any and do I need to change the regulator to a Mosfet unit?
Lastly, I have read a LOT of positive things about this bike. Enlighten me, what are the things you like least about this bike?
Thanks in advance
