Gosh I'm a sucker for a CBR; hardly a bike has been made that's better. I would appreciate the 650r based on my experience on the old '90s 600s I used to ride.

I have a set of Buel pegs that came on my SV when I got it. Yours if you want to cover shipping.
I will say they are notably lower, but they scrape. To be honest, I preferred the stock position.

Only tips I have on the bearings is to tap out slowly working "round the clock" as it were. Don't take too big of a bite, sort of like spooning a tire on. Save the old bearing once you tap them out,...

I always took issue with that rule. A shrewd customer should rely on the expertise of the one hired to do the job. Otherwise, why hire them?

It is odd. I have it hooked directly to the battery. I'll check the voltage when I get home today.

That is very frustrating Bob. It sounds like that rx4 is just a tall, heavy bike. If I were you, I would stick to the Triumph and the Ninja!

If you really just want to turn the motor (to see if it's stuck!), put the trans in 3rd and rotate the back wheel. Bikes are hard to push in 1st. A higher gear makes it easier.

I don't think you have to. I did but that was for another reason, but that plug is above the oil level so you should be fine.
If you removed the stator cover, then you would have to drain the oil,...

I don't see a 500 in this bike's future. The more I read about it from folk who have done it, it is not in fact a bolt-in. So far I see rear upper engine mounts need to be redone, the sprocket needs...

Huh, I did not know the 500 was a bolt-in. They certainly are cheaper than 300s, I will have to investigate.

This bike does NOT need 60hp though! :rotflmao:
