I'm looking for a *new* bike and I've been looking at the mid range 600's, in particular the Suzuki SV650 and the Honda CB599.
Both (*all* ) bikes are too big for me so I'd have to get them lowered. I know this has been done many times with the SV650 but the CB599 is a relatively new model, and does not have a lowering kit option. There is a thought that it could be done with a F3 kit since its supposed to have the same suspension but I haven't been able to find anyone who's done this. Also what about the CB919 kit? Is the frame the same as the CB599? The SV650 is bigger to start with (1/2" taller). I need to get the seat height down to 30" min (I have a 29" inseam).
Also what are the pros/cons of FI vs. carbs? I've heard about the CB599 being "older" tech.
What problems would I have with the CB599 being less common?
Any comments, suggestions, tips, advice, etc appreciated.
