He LOVES it!!! He has ridden it every day since we picked it up. He has progressively been given a bit more lee way on where and when he can ride. This is his first bike, as for now he has a 5-6 mile radius from the house he can ride -however no freeway yet.

Clutch and shifting

My son took two (2) MSF courses prior to getting his bike = HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! He took the intro 1/2 day course and the beginners 2 day course. He had not ridden anything other than a Jet ski prior to taking the intro class. He did pick up the shifting and clutch work very quickly - he had the advantage of learning to drive a car with a standard transmission. Each of our 3 Honda's have a manual transmission. He got the clutch/shifting learning curve worked out when he got his learners permit at 15.5 years old.

Depending on your experience the clutch may be a breeze or may be a difficult transition - hard to know over the internet. However, I would highly recommend the MSF beginners course where you can learn to use the clutch and shift levers in a controlled safe environment.

Good luck...... and most importantly = ATGATT !!

Right on. It looks good and I like that idea so I may do the same. Also thinking about a Kleen air mod but I do not really understand what it really gains you. The previous owner did it to my bike and when I took a look at the reeds they where all gummed up with carbon chunks and oil. I figured it wasn't to healthy for the bike so I hooked it straight to the crankcase until I got the censor and returned it to the stock set up. At the time I was fighting a power commander issue that ended up being a issue with the throttle positioning wire on the pow.
