I now ride a KTM 625 smc. It's alot of fun, but the long rides are tough. I am interested in a VFR and I have a few questions. What is the average range (miles/tank), are the oil changes easy, and how many miles between valve adjustments. The only other question is about engine braking. My 625 has alot of e-braking and I love it. From what I have read the VFR is an great S/T and it has a great reputation. I'm interested in the 98-01 model. I don't want to sell my 625. I just want another bike to travel a little farther. I did 320mi yesterday and my friend were tired of stopping so I could fill up.
