don't worry about go fast parts for the 650, just trade up to a 600 when you feel you mastered the other bike. Be sure to give it atleast 6 months and not 2 weeks

BTW, if you're looking for a good deal on a 650R, check out either Ted Biele over at AJ Foyt, or Stephen Porter over at Clearlake Kawasaki.

Tell 'em Patrick sent you.

You want to gain exp develop a level of comfort riding on the street.Your dirt exp. is the best training for street. buy a used piece of old sv65o or eq somthing you can pay cash for. ride it you will outgrow in one season esp. at 240 lbs maybe do a couple of track days then your second year buy the bike you really want. alot of people buy 600s new and outgrow them there 1st year but are upside down and are stuck or lose there a** at the dealer to move up to a 1000. Your best bet at your size buy a gsxr 750 used

Thanks to everyone for their comments especially vfracer-r........also any thoughts on what type of deal I should be shootin for on the 650R if I talk to the guy at AJ FOYT cycles?.........Ive been on the bike felt the weight of it as well in person and like you guys said it really is opinion........I love the bike the position of the handle bars, everything is great on it and I do love it I DEF. think that is the way Im gonna end up goin. So do most people agree that after a yr or two when Ive out grown this bike it would be a smarter decision to just trade up and get like a 750 or something like that than to try and do some work on the 650R?...........I appreciate the tip u gave Romeo36, this site is the S***

Patrick don't you have a used SV 650 at Motorcycles Unlimited he can check out. Ryan not trying to disuade you from the 650r but you really have so much growing room with the sv 650. You might find that you don't even want to trade "up". Some of the most experienced riders on this site use it as a track bike. Just my .02 though

Ya'll think this is good or bad advice?
the 650r is actually a really good bike for a begginer in my opinion, only because i still classify it as that

Take the MSF course and go out and get that bad boy. Only caveat I would throw in is this.... You may want to consider a used bike for your first one. I am not saying buy some used but something that has already took the hit on depreciation and won't dent the wallet to bad if you lay it down. Have Fun!

+1 and laying down may just be a dump in the driveway. It happens more often than you think and scratch new paint pretty badly. A buddy of mine with a brandspanking new Gixxer did $200 worth of damage to his bike by dropping it.

Dont get me wrong I like SV650s as well, the only thing was they wouldnt approve me on credit and Kawasaki did.....If I go out and get the 650R I can drop 2300 and finance the rest, while is I go out and get the SV650 I gotta pay it all right then and there..........thoughts?

I definitely would go used for my first bike. Patrick has an sv 650 right now that's so cheap that if you added a thousand to what you were putting down you could own it cash!!! No payments!!! And I believe it already has a yoshi pipe on it. Where is Patrick when you need him? I'm literally his commercial right now!!!

Shh...I was thinking of snagging that one come march. :-)

:-) Listen to Tilla. Save the $, buy a used one up front so you're free and clear. Dealer financing can get you into a bind if your not really careful.

A good used bike, can save you some $ & the hassle of breaking the ride in.
