Like it a lot...

as a replacement for my 610. Only wish it had a six speed over a 5. Looks bullet proof, way tougher than a KTM. Gotta have the plate though, can't ride anywhere without it in Cali.

All but the clutch...

The ability to pull in the clutch or feather the clutch has saved my bacon multiple times while riding off road. I'd be leery of a bike without one.

Gator cycle

Seem to recall Dan Gurney came out with something called the alligator or some such. Ugly thing, never found a market.

Check fuel pressure

Fuel pressure check can be done with relatively inexpensive tester from auto parts store. If you have access to code reader you can see if it is throwing a code.

Ps.

The only disappointment thus far is the gas tank. 1.4 gallons is joke.

I wish more manufacturers would follow Beta's example and have an aftermarket tank ready at the time a new model is released.
