Got my new GV650! Have a couple of questions though...
« on: February 21, 2017, 09:37:10 PM »

Hi,
Finally got my new GV650 in black and it looks awesome. Noticed the clock keeps getting reset to 12:00, i'm guessing that's the battery in the head unit right? It's apparently been in a crate for a couple of years. I've had 2 other GV650s but they've been 2007 models so had seen some weathering, i can see from this new one though that the finish quality isn't great but it's a damn cheap bike. I really want to ditch the crappy master cylinder as these seem to weather excessively, does anyone know the bore size? I can see it written anywhere on it. Can't wait to start riding it!

What you posted was a link to the site the photo was hosted to, but not the photo's direct url. If you right clicked the image then hit "copy link address" then browsed to that site, then right clicked on the image again and clicked the same button, you'd then have the direct link to the image.  The below code segment shows how I implemented your image above :D

Bike looks great - are those higher than standard handlebars?  Cool anyway!

Interesting than you comment on the quality, my local (former) Hyo dealer has said to me before that the quality had reduced a bit on newer bikes.....I thought he was just trying to sell me something else!!

Still looks brilliant though, just keep it waterproofed and polished and it'll stay looking like that....my 2010 still looks like new.....just keep it clean. ;)

How does it ride???? :D

I haven't ridden it yet, the weather's not great at the moment and I only ride for fun really. Should take it out this weekend though, can't wait!

The handle bars are standard as far as I'm aware.

I think it's just a little camera trickery....

We have snow this morning!

On the Hyo clock - mine runs fine, but is always 10mins slow and if I set it to the correct time, it's back to ten minutes slow the next day!

Must be on Korean time..... ???
