The bike is great, still like new. Love to ride it and still makes me smiles. Got way better at lunching and maybe is just me but it feels faster. Only gripe I have is the rattle above the gauges and lack of tires to be found around and brake pads. Everything needs to be ordered all the time. I want a new seat, my nut sack starts to get crusty(jk). Thats all.

LOL I feel the same about my sack, dont have as many miles as u but I have already ordered driver and pillion seats from Corbin I set on a friends Kawi 250 that had the seat OMG felt so much nicer. They are a bit pricey, but to save my sack it will be well worth the price of admission.
And yes his Kawi kicks the crap out of the 250, but he has WAY to much money tied up in it.

13k, 2 water pump seals, rad cap appears to be leaking atm. Rides straight, hate the brakes, front suspension is on the soft side. Tires are a bit of a problem as well but you gotta love how cheap every bit of this bike is. Plenty of power for canyon carving and very forgiving.
Sit further back. Also makes you feel like you're going faster

While I do that the literal term of balls and maybe not the figurative way, I really don't like the seat. What seat brands would you recommend? I always hear Corbin but d@mn, are all the seats that expensive? I'm looking for a seat that might work to 'lower' the sitting profile.
Also, my issue is that the seat has been ripping a hole in the crotch of my jeans! hahaha. New jeans excuse I suppose.
