i just got a 2012 this weekend and have ridden 30 miles so far. i think the bike's weak off the bottom revs, so i'm going to try a smaller fr sprocket soon. i know i'll loose some top speed for hwy use, but im only using this bike for school, so it's all light to light city riding. id rather have a bike that pulls harder from a stop than to have one that pulls past 80-90 mph.
i saw that there's room on the axle mount to pull the rr wheel farther back when i go to put a smaller sprockt on the front, so that's good b/c i won't need to shorten the chain. come to think of it, i haven't checked yet so i could be wrong, but i think this stock chain probably don't have a removable chain link, it's all riveted from honda. hope i don't have to shorten the chain, b/c i don't think we have a chain breaker.
