That thing looks bone stock and mint. I have the same bike but a little altered....if you'd like a more cushioned passenger seat I'd love to swap with you if you get that thing.
Check if simple things work, like the tach (could be a very big issue), does the neutral light work when you put it in neutral, does it run in neutral with the kickstand down, any oil leaks. those are just a couple minor things that can be a big pain.
If you ride it and it feels like the rpms are high, it just takes some getting used to. I have a 18/43 gearing and love it (forget what stock is). bought mine for 3k with 30k miles. it has over 40k after one summer. One bad thing about these bikes; if you're not experienced with working on a bike, they are not good to learn on. there are a lot of tight spaces and peculiar things about them.
But they are an incredible ride, and solid bike. If it feels too cruiser just get rid of those big bars, get some cheap bikemaster ones, i liked the daytona's.
Denny, remember how we debated about my paint being stock? that one is the same, except my fenders have stripes on them.
