Hey everyone,

I managed to blow the transmission out of my DL650 a couple days ago, which was my daily ride. I don't have the facilities or time to do an engine swap on it, so I plan on selling & using the money as a down payment on, you guessed it, a new bike. At the top of my list is, you guessed it again, the fz09. Will be hitting you guys up with some questions soon.

Travis.........Welcome to the forum and hopefully, you get your new FZ shortly. They are a lot of bike for the money and there is a lot of knowledge on this forum......so ask away, someone will probably be able to answer your question. Just do a search first, cause a lot of stuff here has been ask and answered and you can save yourself some time that way.

CJ, you may be right, I have been thinking I may have just flogged it too hard on purpose. I have always been dissatisfied with the power on the DL650, and rode that thing wide open 50% of the time. Looks like the FZ09 just might be what I want in that department!

LOL. Well, If you are a WOT type of guy, then your commute to work is about to get a lot quicker. :cool:

Thanks!

Nothing beats a couple wheelies on the way to work- it's by far my favorite way to start the day.
