Hello everyone. Downsized a month ago. Knees getting weaker by the day. Loved the lighter C50T. 2015 model with less than 6000k. Haven't ridden much yet. Getting chillier here now in Ontario.

Thank you guys. The Nomad 1700 had all the power when cruising already but heavy when pushing and backing around the driveway and parking. With my small stature and senior moments, with both feet finally flat on the ground, all of a sudden the C50 feels light as a feather.

I understand, I've dropped sizes myself.......I hope you're not too disappointed in the C50.

So far so good. Except when I filled up for the first time, I didn't realize you can't fill up gas all the way to the brim. I had to stop in one of the parking lots to siphon off some cause gas overflowed out the gas cap. How far up can you fill the tank to avoid this? Any advice?

I just fill mine up while it is leaning over on the kickstand. Might put a little more in once I straighten it up, but not much.

So when filling up don't let gas over the metal barrier inside the tank? That's pretty much almost half a liter from that point til the neck isn't it?

That half liter is better than having it come out while riding.
