Hej from Sweden

Hej!

Bought the black z650 two weeks ago.
Just passed 500km and have another 500km of the break in period.

This is my first bike and I think it was an excellent choice.
Insurance isn't that expensive. I pay around $700/yr which was one of the reasons I chose this bike.

"Mods" so far:
- R&G Tail Tidy

"Mods" in the future (If you have any suggestions on specific products don't be shy, leave a comment):
- LED Running and Headlight
- Different sliders/defenders(?)
- Pillion Seat Cover
- Tank Pad
- LED DRL
- Mobile Holder
- Probably some other thing I find on Ebay, AliExpress...

Safe riding!

Welcome to the forum.

What bikes have you owned previously? Always interested in knowing the experience that fellow owners come from.

Hey roadhawk and thank you!

No previous bikes, this is the first one.
I mainly chose this one because of it's "low" cost insurance and also because I drove a Honda CB650F with the school.
I think that the z650 is cooler than the Honda

My car history is longer... haha

Hey there,

same here, first bike.
Any chance you could post a few pics of the r&g tail tidy with the mounted plate?

What about the tilt / angle of the plate and how did you mount the side and rear reflectors?

Cheers,
Alex

Hey Alex!

Absolutely! Just give me a day or two and I'll get back to you with pictures.
There is actually a round reflector included in the R&G pack with 3M on it's back.

I think that the tilt is 50 degrees.

I do not have any side reflectors.

Hey there,

thanks a lot for the pictures, really do appreciate it.
What about the illumination of the license plate light, like is it bright enough, are you happy with that?

Cheers,
Alex
