Any mechanical issues?

I looks great!

My bike is 2007 and total mileage is now around 2000 miles.
When I bought this bike as new(at late 2009, it was some dealer leftovers), we opened the engine with my friend and re-sealed it before I run it. If you have later 2008-> bike, you dont have to do this.
I have bought one new starter motor, but thats about it.
Service intervals are short, but I dont mind changing the oils myself, its pretty simple when you learn to do it properly.

I really like the idea of this bike as an ADV bike mainly because it’s a twin makes plenty of power and is Italian

I took it out on the street briefly yesterday to get gas and it's scary fast and handlebar vibes (from the engine, not the tires) are intense.


This is going to be a hoot!

For DSR the IMS tank is a must.

My RXV came without a fan; this is supposed to be the right one except it doesn't have the cage on the back. We'll see..

It's a disease, I know.

But that LR3 is amazing.

Stock tank is good for about two hours of trail riding. IMS tank hasn't shown up yet.

Stock tires are decent in the loose stuff but wearing out fast--they'll be replaced with these (Pirelli Scorpion XCMH):

OK, so it took a bit more than a week for it to arrive, but it came today!
