    Looks like I can order side panels with the full word "Interceptor" on them from Hitchcock's. But they will cost me over $100 bucks by the time I pay shipping. :( So down they go to the bottom of my priority list.

    Tuned over my first 1,000 miles on the bike today. Now I can call myself a seasoned veteran. Right? :)

    16 Tooth Front Sprocket.

    According to Gear commander this will drop my rpms in my highest gear at 80 mph from about 5300 to an even 5000. https://www.gearingcommander.com/ Again, according to Gear Commander, the Kawasaki W800, a very similar bike, turns only 4500 rpms in high with stock gearing. Another similar bike...

    16 Tooth Front Sprocket.

    According to the specs it's supposed to be 107 ft. lbs. My torque wrench only goes to 80, so that's what I used. I also flattened two sides of the washer that keeps it from turning like they did in this video.

    Seems odd to me too. "Interceptor" is pretty much a generic term. I don't see where Honda would have the right to copywrite it. And I like Honda too. They make good stuff. I have a Honda car, lawn mower, and generator, and I seriously considered getting a Honda Shadow before I went with my...

    I'd keep the ones that say "Interceptor" on them. So what if one of them is a bit scuffed? They look cool and that's what counts. :cool:

    16 Tooth Front Sprocket.

    I got it put on today. It was a real bear getting that nut off. When I tried to do it by myself the rear wheel moved before the nut would loosen no matter how hard I was pressing on the rear brake. I finally had to get my neighbor to help me. We took the bike off the center stand so the rear...

    Where did you get the side panels that say "Interceptor" instead of Int.?

    "Where I live 70 mph in the right lane is fine." You must really be from Mars! "I'm also a beginner and have only been riding for 5800 miles." 5800 miles!!! When I get that much I'm going to consider myself a seasoned veteran!

    Learning to Ride at 75

    I'm at 3 and 1/2 months and 911 miles on the bike. I think I'm doing fairly well if I do say so myself, considering my advanced years and the fact that this is my first motorcycle . I dropped it 3 times in the first 100 miles, but not since then. I'm getting more comfortable in traffic. I had...

    Metric Conversion?

    Does anyone know if it's possible to convert the odometer reading on a INT650 bought in the US from miles to kilometers. I would like to do that on mine if it's possible. I'm one of those rare Americans that likes the metric system better.

    The GT 650 rear brake pedal is a poor design on an otherwise nice bike. Time to do something about it.

    I put this one on my INT650. https://www.tecbikepartsusa.com/TEC_CNC_Alloy_Adjustable_Lever_Set_for_RE650_p/re-blvr.htm

    2022 Intercepor 650 major throttle hesitation

    I just noticed that my check engine light is on. The bike has 797 miles on it and seems to be running just fine, so I'm just assuming it's something minor and continuing to ride it. The nearest dealership is 150 miles away so I ordered the diagnostic tool from Hitchcock's and will try to resolve...

    Rear Rack

    My luggage rack came from Hitchcock's today. I'm pretty happy with it. The fit is perfect and the color matches the color of the bike's frame perfectly too. The cost was quite a bit higher than ordering one on ebay from India but I felt more confident getting it from Hitchcock's. I also got...

    Rear Rack

    Yep. I was talking about my 650 INT. I was going by the title "Rear Rack". Didn't notice that it was under a Himalayan forum. Sorry, my bad. I'll move it to the right place.

    Learning to Ride at 75

    Today marks 3 months since I got my motorcycle. I now have 716 miles on it. I dropped the bike 3 times all within the first 100 miles. Haven't dropped it since so I guess that's a good thing. The first time I dropped it I wasn't even riding it. Just trying to push it up onto my back patio. The...
