    CB650F Jerking when adding or slowing the throttle

    I had the same problem when I first rode my CB650F - on advice from here I adjusted my free throttle play to about 4mm, that and a little getting used to the immediate response changed the whole feel of the bike.

    All 650's How can you visually tell a bike is restricted/limited?

    After having my second hand new toy for nearly a month and not yet wanting to ride at 140-150 mph how can I visually tell my bike isn't a restricted model (I was verbally told it's not when I bought it), also does this mean that if a bike was stopped by police they would struggle to confirm that...

    Sunday Morning

    Oh my, sun shining, a little chilly but dry. Almost perfect biking weather, god how I missed that. An hour out this morning with no particular place to go, i wasn't even upset with the Sunday drivers. Just thought I would let everyone know how good life is at 60

    Thanks great information, I'm still getting used to the bike and as you say the ABS isn't hyper-sophisticated but works. I'll think I'll just get on riding and quit worrying about it.

    CB650R Mid Bike Crisis

    Welcome back, I have a similar story. Passed my test at 18, several bikes later I realised I had a company car and more pressing commitments (wife, mortgage etc) so hung up my helmet and gloves at 29. Missed 2 wheels so much and found I continued to hanker after every bike that passed me but...

    All 650Rs Hello from Ireland … 👋

    Rafe Thanks, I saw that in one of the forums on here a yesterday, I checked the freeplay and adjusted it to about 3-4mm, not done any riding since. I'll let you know if it improves.

    All 650Rs Hello from Ireland … 👋

    Welcome, very nice colour scheme, like you I got back on 2 wheels (2017 cb650F) last week after a long break (20 + years), I was super nervous and very rusty too. Have since spent evenings down the local trading estate getting the feel back. How are you getting on with throttle response? mine...
