Lots of Rsoles out there. I realise it's not always practical but if someone seems genuine and they're not too far away I'll meet them at their place and they can take the bike for a test from there.

My second bike was a Bighorn. It was like your wrist was connected directly to the rear wheel. You turned the wrist and it just pulled like stink. Awesome torque!

Handling was non-existant.

I had a DT250E back in the day and the stock muffler was terribly restrictive. I swear it felt like twice the engine power with the muffler off and as above, it'd rev out nicely. I changed over to a...

I also have the Fly Trekker (bought from Revzilla) and I like it apart from the face shield, which doesn't get completely out of the way when in the up position.

However, a 10 minute trip and $10 spent at an auto parts store might save a couple of hours of frustration and possibly a trip to the auto parts store and $10 anyway. But sure, check the bulbs first.

I also owned an IT425G, the model following your pic, and while it's my favourite ever bike I don't think it's pivotal. I'd take it back in a heartbeat.

I owned a Bighorn. It was a torquemonster but handled like a brick. I also owned a DT250E. I reckon the DT's were a pivotal bike. Also owned the first GSX Suzuki (still have it).
