So the 2005 S2R800 doesn't come with a dry clutch? That is one of the things I loved about the Monsters I had - they all had amazing shifting, and I see complaints with the s2r800 being "clunky."
No, it's a wet clutch.
I've no experience of wet clutch monsters.
But I've heard the clutch pull is much less, and the 800 was always the nod for commuter riding.
Honestly, if it were me, I'd be waiting for the right 1000. The dry clutch was always what drew me to it. The clutch sound..
That said, that 800 is a very unusually low mileage bike.
The S4RS. Man, those things are another category altogether. Effectively the bike we're both used to with considerably more top end power.
I wonder how well they plod along in traffic?
