I heard rumors of 43hp... If that's true it could kill the other 300s and maybe even the CBR500. It's a ******************** sexy bike though!

False. I have had my motorcycle license 3 years and never had a drivers license. I have a "M-CYCLE ONLY DL" as it says on the top.

Thanks a lot, Mike that's exactly what I needed to know!

One more thing, I've got a chain breaker, what tool will I need for the master link included with RK O-ring chain?

I hate to be that guy who resurrects an old thread, but I want to make sure I'm buying the right thing.

I think it will be fine, I've had it down to 13 or 14 degrees without a problem. My old(er) battery doesn't like starting below freezing but it will, just a little slower cranking.

I average in the low 70s(MPG). An all day highway trip gets me around 60 (80mph+). Last weekend I hit some back roads with a group of slow Harleys and got 92mpg.
