    Has anyone done a write up on how to change the swing arm bearings as my dommies back end has started flapping all over the place so I reckon I need to change em. I am assuming its the swing arm bearing and not the wheel bearings as the bike steadies up the faster you go but then flaps and...

  20. Briefly 600 vs 650 Observations from those you have tried both

    Now I've already had a couple of 600's but what could convince me to move upto a 650? The 600 looks much nicer and more 'manly' if dated, with the 650 m curvier and expensive in a drop!
