My 620 does that from time to time it's either the throttle shaft sticking or the cable (cable is new so I doubt it) I can grab the throttle cam and shut it and it will drop to ~900RPM.If that's not...

Those are all good ideas, but keep in mind that 2 dudes can pick a Monster up and stuff if into a Van in about 15 seconds. Make sure you chain it to something if possible.

All the adapters look like shit in my humble opinion. Source an OEM top clamp off an S2R 1000 from ebay or your favorite supplier, they are set up for 1 1/8" bars.

The S2R's are adjustable but they are not the quality of the 748's. They are more difficult to come across as well. I have a top triple bored for 748 forks if you decide to go that route. Nothing...

No doubt! My Carrozzeria's made a huge difference as well, and they're like boat anchors compared to the BST's.

That's a spring and shock off a 999. The OEM 620 spring should be pretty close for your weight.
