Thanks guys! She's safe home in my garage - ended up trailering because I couldn't get a ride. Which oil filter do you guys recommend if not OEM?

Question for you guys - I'm riding it home, it's about a 3.5 hour ride. Engine only has 165 miles on it. Should I be concerned about RPM limits and/or running the engine too long at the same speed??
When shop bring V650 to my house they told me first 800km ride no more than 6000 RPM, second 800km no more than 8000rpm. Manual say first 800 no more than 4000 rpm, second 800km no more than 6000rpm. So I use middle first 800 no more than 5000 rpm second 800 no more than 7000 rpm.

For oil filter - I will always use OEM because it is OEM and cheap (or until service guy recomended me something else), it cost im only 13-14$ (including tax.)
For oil - I run on Motorex 15W50

Nice mods, please can you tell me what you use for ambient temperature?
I try to find something, but I don't know what to choose.
And which fender extender you use.

Yep! This fits perfectly in the stock accessory spot, no cutting required:

I got mine off Ebay. Only reads Celsius. I'm learning that mid to upper teens is good riding weather. Haha

Me too! One degree C is TOO coarse, compared w/ F.

1 degree C = 1.8 degrees F

WHAT I posted was HOW MUCH a 1 degree CHANGE (Celsius) is in F, NOT how much 1C IS in F.
My bad,
I got lost in translation in original post.
I found on the internet what exactly you were talking about :)

Gotta love metric for tools n bolts n such. Makes it soooo easy to figure out. None of that 3/8 or 7/16 bullsh!t.
