New (to me) M620ie

Stole this in early January, paid $1100 with 12K in it and a bad stator. Hauled it home, cranked it up and went for a short ride. Ran like a singer sewing machine.

Spent it's entire life in Hawaii (apparently outside the entire time), before being shipped back to NC and was covered with chain lube, grime, and corrosion with a dent in the tank. Thankfully it's all cosmetic and not structural and easily fixed.

I pulled the side covers to change the stator & clutch expecting to see the case full of sludge, but to my suprise you could eat off the inside of the motor, it's that clean. It appears to have been a commuter bike that was well cared for mechanically, but used as transportation but my no means loved.

The plan is to resto-mod it to a 944 over the next year.

It appears to be almost completely stock with the exception of a Sargent seat (which I hate), DanMoto commie slave labor slip on's and some cheap bar end mirrors, and a tail chop.

That will change very shortly! Stay tuned.

After a weekend of scrubbing it looked a little better.

The bike had been dropped on its right side and the brake lever was tweeked, so I replaced those and the cheezy plastic bar end mirrors.

Master cylinder caps looked like crap, and since the plan is to replace the MC's I was not willing to part with $50.00 to replace them. So I grabbed a file some sandpaper and paint and spruced them up for the time being.

As I stated earlier, corrosion is a major issue here. The gas cap was almost too far gone to bother with but I think I can bring it back. Don't have any before pictures at the moment but i have one of the base with the new cap. Old cap was far worse than the base and it was bad. After about 3-4hrs of sanding polishing I think the result was worth it.

Stock cap is in the process of restoration and will be used on multi-day trips when the bike will be parked overnight.

Most of the anodizing on the tank hold down was gone and it was badly corroded as well, again no before pic, but again nice result for the price of a few sheets of sandpaper & some Mother's aluminum wheel polish.

The only things I don't like about the looks of the early Monsters is the rear fender, which was dealt with before I bought the bike, the front fender which will be addressed later and the "bridge girder" footrest mounts. Removed those and installed aftermarket rearsets. After some reasearch, not sure how long they will be on the bike. Seems S2/S4 foot controls will mount up if you swap the swingarm pivot so I'm on the hunt for those. I will keep the aftermarket rearsets for track days.

Plan is to either restore the factory mounts and use them when I want to carry a passenger or mount S2/S4 rear footrests.

Wanted it to breathe a little better so I go to work. Sounds better and flows better because it needs the ECU reflashed.

After a few days looking around the shop, thought I could do better. The intention is to run a TPO Beast R intake when all is said and done, but that's $350 & this was $20.00 & a pack of Marlboro Lite's.
