Ooh la la. Very nice. I've been hearing good things about the new husky engines. Supposed to be much smoother than the last model. 08-10 smr either likes no throttle or full throttle. New ones are supposed to be easier to ride. Have you ridden it yet?

OK let me start by saying ALL OF THIS may be due to inexperience or unfamiliarity, or possibly bike setup.
The bike feels very underpowered in first and second gear.. feels like i'm pulling a trailer.
Second of all the hydraulic clutch...I'm NOT used to these, my trials bike had one and i never got used to it, i can admit i stalled this bike at least 7-8 times earlier.. BUT only when decelerating, never when accelerating.. i think its the fact that I'm not used to the clutch.
Third i came off of a TURBO GSXR 1000 it was way smoother, this bike likes to lunge, has a hard dive when u get off the throttle, I think the addition of the power up kit and maybe if i was running the race map this would be better, from what i've heard most of these are running the race map from the dealer, mine isn't..
Also I haven't ridden a four stroker like this since I was twelve..

All that said I honestly love this bike, for what I want I think it will be perfect. its much slower than I'm used to but still more exciting..
hope fully i can get used to it work permitting, and will learn how to ride better, i think all of these issues are either in my head or a direct result of my actions or inactions or inability...

Found the potential problem... I had to drain 10oz. of oil to get it to a reasonable level... big thanks to Motorcycles Unlimited for advise and explanation, but basically it was burping up into the air box.. my filter is soaked, THE DEALER after a little arm twisting is working on getting me a new one.. hopefully when i get back from work it'll be here and i can test, but starting it with no filter on it just sounds stronger didn't ride it, but sitting there it sounds like i feel it should..

Unfortunately there isn't as much information out there about the 511 as there is the 510, but I can tell you that the 510 runs like until you get rid of the 02 sensor, install power up kit, get rid of the cat in the exhaust, and put 800 miles on the bike. It comes corked up to pass emissions. Once I did all that to mine it ran great. It does have much more engine braking than a 450 and that is something you get used to. You cannot get goofy with your throttle hand like a smooth inline 4. Once you do the break in and get the power up kit installed some of the surging goes away but it really does not like to run at a steady speed very smoothly. It likes to go WOT or off the throttle and nothing in between. The dealer in Austin isn't that great for support. Uptite Husky, Motoxotica, and Hall's Cycles are great resources and will talk you through any problems you have. Uptite Husky will bash the new 511 because he is old school and doesn't like that Kymco makes the new engines but once you let him rant for a minute he will help you.

I offer a free break-in service. Just drop the bike off at my house for a week or two and it will be ready to go.

P.S. Do you have full coverage insurance?

I just kept the rpms below 6k and changed the oil at 400 and 800 miles. Checked the valves at 800 miles as well. You really need to do the power up kit which on the 511 is just unplugging the 02 sensor and sticking a resistor in there. The 511 is supposed to come with the resistor when you buy the bike so if the dealer didn't put it on you need to tell them to send you one. Napalm has a bad habit of not including everything apparently. Someone else I know bought one and they didn't give them the passenger pegs. Not a huge deal but when you spend thousands of dollars it would be nice if you got everything you paid for.

ok, you did not like his offer... I will break it in for 75 cents a mile.
It seems like the free part you had a problem with and i know real men like to pay their own way.
