Howdy everyone, just got my new-to-me '04 650 up in running shape.

Sold my '01 Kawi EX500 and bought this thing because i wanted something faster and better for long hauls, taking some getting used to the size since I'm pretty small but i've been loving it.

It's a bit of a mess and was clearly thrashed by the first owner, plenty of work to be done on it. In the past two weeks I've replaced the chain/sprockets, repainted/replaced some parts, wrapped the exhaust, installed lowering links, and did a whole lot of cleaning out mud and spiders (this thing was full of spiders when i bought it). Much more mechanical and cosmetic work planned once I get some more miles on the bike.

My wife had a 96 EX500, nice bike but the dl650 blows it away in all aspects.
definitely agree, as much as i liked how relatively simple the EX was to work on, it is pretty nice having something more modern/faster/more comfortable.
