Thanks. That gives me some direction. I am leaner than that on the pilot. I'll try to take it apart this week.

What I want and would buy tomorrow is a smaller, lighter weigh version of the 1190R. How about something that kicks the 800GS' ass? Track electronics, adjustable suspension and shed some weight.

I had a NX250 in college. The highest tech of the three offered: 125, 250 and 650 (not that I'm knocking the 650:wink:). The 250s engine was very trick for the time. What other small-bore, liquid...

Well we'll just have to agree to disagree here. The stock XRL has the poorest ratio choices I've ever seen in a vehicle. I would never go back to a stock 2nd. The fifth I'm not sold on—yet.
