This is a great thread!!

I was hophing to see a G650X-Moto, but that's ok. I sat on a G650X-Country today, and it felt too scrunched (and not exactly thrilled about Made-In-China engine/components); so I'll convert my F650ST.

I'll be sealing head with triple cut valves/seats and a few other torque embellishing goodies.

>> My question to all the gurus here is how do I convert my cat exhaust and still stay legal? I was thinking about SuperTrapp adjustable baffle endcaps which are 5" outer DIA like my stock end cap, but the only UNKNOWN would be converting an approx 2" DIA core baffle with an approx 4" core baffle inside the muffler. That conversion process would be an unknown until I pop the lid spot-welds.

I really enjoyed every page of this thread. Lots of dream bikes!! Now I want to be a Tard too!

Yes, tell it to me too! I'm interested in hearing how the engine holds up, how much maintenance it needs etc.

As I recall, when the bike first came out the warranty pretty much ended when you took it outside the dealer's showroom

I reckon pretty much everything you've heard about these bikes is true. This one's an '07 that popped it's motor at 2K miles. Plenty of them have popped em at less miles. AF1 installed an '08 motor in it . Aprilia seems to think the problem has been addressed. I guess time will tell. I do know that at about 125 miles on this new motor, when I went to change the oil, for some reason there was not nearly enough in the engine and way too much in the tranny. Talked to AF1 about it and they just told me to keep a close eye on the oil levels. Still, the bike is such a rush! That much power at that little weight WooohOOOOO!!

I know, not exactly SM, but I spooned these tires on, in preparation for a trip to the Smokie Mountain National Park area. We plan on riding as much dirt and gravel roads, as pavement. Never been there, hope it's fun.
