Well I got her home Friday evening finally!
I sat on the highway for over an hour at a dead stop on the way to get the bike. Our highway was closed due to a truck that went on fire blocking all lanes.
Anyway, the bike was definitely a DIRTY DITCH PIG!
Brought her home and spent hours cleaning her. The chain was disgusting, I don't think the original owner ever cleaned it but just kept adding chain goo to it. What I thought was scratches on the bike, most of it ended up washing right off.
I took the bike for a ride and this is what I have found so far.
Handling, so far it seems to be good, the bike feels a lot slimmer then the older gixxer's. The tank doesn't feel or look so big!
Power, I was a little disaapointed in this, at least in the lower rev's. The bike off the line and in low rev's doesn't feel as responsive even compared to my F4i. Not sure why, maybe it has to do with the stock rear sprocket which is only 43. Maybe someone here has some experience with this and knows something about this.
Attached is a pic of the bike I took Firday.
