Well, after my 2003 650 CVT failed on me in December I swore off riding for a while. The other day I was browsing at my local motorcycle shop and I found a 2007 650 hiding in the corner with only 7000 miles on the clock! I couldn't help myself and she came home with me the next day . Hopefully this one will last longer than the 18 months my old one did ! Wish us luck!!
