    Soberpete and I pulled the trigger on some new CFMoto 650NKs last week, and I got my plates this week so I'm fully legal. Pete's getting the bike in his name so will take a while longer for his plates.

    Anyhow here's me at the plating ceremony...34,500 RMB down.

    First thing I noticed...the bars are freaking narrow, I measured them at about 680mm, holy cow I like 720-750mm. Also there's an upsweep of about 70mm, where about 20mm would suit me. Might get some Renthals and some new grips, not sure if I'll get the bar mounts and go with the Fatbar.

    Done about 40kms so far, will be using Loctite 243 and zip tying everything I can find, what did everyone else do on their break-in?

    No way! I spent four years getting that bike up to the level of a neglected 1982 Honda CB250N. In fact it's worked very reliably for about the last two years other than cheap component failure.

    Well done

    Good news about time you moved up a size 34.500 for the bike what about the cost to plate bike . break in drive slow 0-800km 4000 max revs 800-1500 km 6000 max change oil at 500 km and again at 1500km sounds good check the water pump to see if you have a leak and how is 2nd to 3rd gears going up ???

    just got the TR Trade for 39.800 in red will do a report soon is your side stand the same as the TR to short ???

    Congrats! Enjoy the bike. For break in I tried to keep the revs lower than normal, basically following the manual, though I found myself going over quite a bit. Bike has been fun, and for the most part running great.

    Forgot to mention, tighten the tubing going into the radiator. I have heard it has a tendency to work itself loose, and I have had one instance where that had been the case on mine. I have since tightened everything down and not seen another issue.

    480RMB or so for plate including insurance. The short kick stand would ideally be maybe 2-4cm longer, but not really terrible, maybe TR sits higher? Was going to do break-in something similar to what you said, but thanks for that.

    I was getting so bored of small displacement bikes I nearly gave up on riding. This should reignite some passion.
