Thanks for the comments guys. I really wasn't too happy at the prospect of selling the 640, so I think I'll look for a smaller dirt bike to practice on.

The 690 sounds great and I want one, but I too wouldn't buy a 690 'til they have a year or two on them.

The 640 does the job for me, so that's what I'd get... Of course I am biased.

Well, as I'm sure you know. In the UK at least, once it leaves the showroom it looses lots of dough. I don't really think that the dealer has priced this low enough.

I went with 0.9mm and she seems happy. I figure that it's a big cylinder to ignite, I'm hoping that a bigger gap = bigger spark, so bigger is better IMO.

Not sure if it's right now though :rofl
