Beautiful idea but use a modern version of the 650 motor instead. The difference between the two motors was night and day. But I am biased as a CX650 was my first street bike:D

You found the 'duke hard on the knees and the hyper not to be? That surprises me as my 'duke is like a comfy couch compared to any Hypers that I have sat on. How do you find the change otherwise?
