If need be you can drill the hole further back where the leaver is straight then use your heel for up shifts.

I carry a product called form card, heat up in hot water then mould into the desired shape, can even replace a missing nut....

Club Lead not Club Med.

If it does start in neutral, I would take a closer look at the clutch lockout switch then the side stand lockout switch.
The what? We have one of those? What does it look like?

Yes I understand that.

It makes no difference you can still use the bolt and 2 nuts you just make a shorter leaver then use your heal to operate the up shifts.

Here's their eBay link: https://www.ebay.com/str/The2Wheels

They also have their own website now too: https://www.the2wheels.com/

I think this is the updated version of the ones I purchased: https://www.the2wheels.com/products/...set-for-suzuki

Thanks guys, appreciate all the help and advice, I'm going to change the sprockets and chain, airfilter and hopefully coolant since I will have the tank off already.

Not sure if anyone else is subscribed still to this forum, but I was wondering what kind of cheap mods have you guys done to your bikes?

In case you don't know, there is a hidden, powered, and fused connector in the fairing. It is there to power the oem grip heaters.

Eastern beaver, I think, makes a connector that fits there. (it has been so long I forget where it came from) But once you get the connector in there, you've got power for anything you want to add to the front. I've installed a cigaret lighter, usb power, and two pair of cheapo ebay led fog lights to the front.

If you are looking for super cheap, put the lights down by the front wheel by just adding them (glue, gorilla tape, zip ties, etc) to the round reflector already there, no mounting hardware needed.

I wanted a taller seat, so I found a dl1000 rider who wanted a shorter seat, so we swapped. Free seat mod for each of us.

And if you have crash bars, you can find some cheap ($10 each or so) bags to add to them. Mine are simply zip tied to the crash bars.

the 650is tricked out nice! I plan on once I get more funds I definitely want to add more mods to mine. The plastics are unfortunately not in the best shape and the previous owner painted them almost a matte color on the fairings. I keep an eye out on eBay for used ones and for other mods as well. Thanks for the advice.
