Motorboy  :002: Boy are you lucky the 500X isn't a two stroke.
40 MPH in 6th gear?
If it were a RD400 you would have to carry a case of spark plugs
with you.  :153:
I'm just shifting from 2nd to 3rd at that speed.
I put mine in 6th today at 45mph and tried to roll on the gas,
and it sounded like it was running under water!
 :038:  All kidding aside, I love the way this thing revs.
I hope the engine is more Japanese then Thailandian, because
I'm probably going to wear mine out.    :007:

P.S. Took mine offroad today for the first time, and it kind of
felt like a lighter version of my old Buell Ulysses!  :016:
Which got good gas mileage too. Just want to stay on topic.  :431:
Had many a two stroke back in the day-miss them a bit-mileage wise I think my 1969 Kawasaki H1 was the worst maybe 30mpg-we didn't worry about mileage back than more trying to find high octane clean fuel-didn't want those nasty holes in the top of the pistons
It's not a big motorcycle just a groovy little motorbike

I should have known you were close to my age and had a couple of two strokes in the day.......
Heck, most of the people on the Board wouldn't know who

The computer on-board tell me 3.5/100, but the reality say 3.3 liters!
This bike is a mechanical camel...

every vehicle onboard mpg is optimistic
car, truck, bike-all the same, not accurate

Checked my records I have had 18 two stroke street bikes-that is not A Newman it is a self portrait painted after a wild night out many years ago-those were the days :821:
