don't put any money into that bike. Just ride the out if it, and learn your craft. Then spend and get something worth having.

As far as a stabilizer. If you get one, know that you get what you pay for. Scotts, GPR, Ohlins.....Quality costs money.

I love my scotts.

Depends on what you plan to use the bike for:

stunting: probably

cruising: nah

track: yes

Has nothing to do with it being a 600 or not, but not worth the cost on a mostly stock street bike.

maybe. Especially if you live in an apartment complex. Bikes get stolen in this town A LOT.

Imo lights are worst, people will stare at you while driving. Where they are looking ends up where they are going.
