The Shiver 750 sure is an interesting machine for Aprilia's 'entry level'. Check out the Video (Italian). It's highly sophisticated too with drive-by-wire, fine atomising injectors, mixed gear/chain camshaft drive system. "The chain is shorter, for less overall stress and a longer working life; this...

On that note, a good street 250 to start with is Kawasaki's Ninja® 250R for only $2999. Easy to handle at only 304 lbs, and well equipped with full fairing and a four-stroke liquid-cooled DOHC parallel twin.

Suzuki's DRZ400S at $5600 would probably be your best choice. It is the best available dual-purpose being lighter (291 lbs) and as powerful as the 650's, with liquid cooling, better suspensions and a 36.8" seat height... http://www.suzukicycles.com/Products/DRZ400SK7/Specs/Default.aspx Kawasaki's ne...

Helmet strap position may vary between different brands... Also, if the helmet is too large, you might be overtighting the strap to compensate.

Check your exhaust clamp bolt. It may be too long and rubbing on your rear suspension coil spring under compression. You may see a wear mark on the spring. It caused an annoying squeak in buddy's 2005. I finally found it and made him cut the bolt shorter.

Kawasaki is also in the process of developing a 1000cc parallel twin for a Versys 1000. The new engine might already have been developed as Kawasaki has planned to launch a surprise model early in 2007. http://www.raptorsandrockets.com/News/2007_Kawasaki.htm http://www.raptorsandrockets.com/images/K...
