    Plus Points:

    No Problem On long run ( even u ride continuous 8 hr)
    Good Grip
    Easy Break
    No Heat Up ( As it is Air Cooled)

    Neg Points:

    Change Handel If u wanna go Long rides its sport edition so have to bear it...
    Don't be smart in MUD..other wise

    Fuel Consumption :

    I am getting 25 @ long & at local 22

Pay attention to how fast the shock compresses, and how it rebounds - if it feels like it shoots back like a spring, you have a failed shock. If it comes back in a somewhat controlled manor, the stock shock is probably okay. If it overshoots and bounces around a bit, definitely bad shock."

    After Getting it ....2 main issue that i face is

    1). Disk Break Front
    2). Balancing of wheels.

    As i used to drive smooth rides before that so not like this too much...But its engine & power hooks me up to get this ASAP....

    So went to my Old mechanic whom i know when i have CD 70 in 98... He is good chap & also expert having much knowledge abt bikes He check bike & say WELLDONE .... at that time i was surprised that he don't ride it but I am happy....

    I go with little check ups & then disk pads...Balancing...now bike is back in action...

    I tried to go only @ 180 on it on highway till now...Bec is kay bad SIGNAL aha jata hy... I found very un comfortable @ 120...why...this is ?

    I went back to Mechanic tell him the situation ..then U know what he tell...A MONO SHOCK is making trouble so very much dangerous @ high speed....So good to know that he also have solution ....After changing that MONO SHOCK back in action...now much more comfortable @ 120 ...
