Just picked up a 2011 with 4K on the clock. Took it out for the maiden voyage on Sunday.
It's a nice little backroad beater, but the stock tires are JUNK!

The previous owner dropped 3 teeth on the rear and it makes the narrow powerband work pretty nice.
It has an Ohlins rear shock, but it needs a stiffer spring for my weight.

The forum won't allow me to post until I get 2 posts in here, so here it is

Oh yeah!

I was able to get 184 miles on 4.3 gallons of regular gas

I thought that was pretty good. The low fuel lamp never came on, so I bet I can get 200 plus

I filled up today at 282 miles, NO light yet. Still had a bit more than 1 Litre in the tank.
