I've noticed new round turn signals and the yellow shock snubbers are no longer visible. I don't know if they're now black or if something else has been done,

like maybe internal hydraulic stops? I won't see my bike for real till the 5th to know for sure

The round turn signals are DOT marked. These are the same ones that they had on the 535 GT.

My GT did indeed come with the yellow shock snubbers, just couldn't see them in the photos sent to me

GO AZ Motorcycles Scottsdale guys said all sixteen 650s they've received so far, including the May delivery had the round turn signals

My build date is May and there's a little up/down seat play. Zero front/back, side/side play. Looks like an easy fix if it were to bug me

No issues with my seat. I just need to find or build something a little more comfortable.

My build date is May ...

Excuse my ignorance, but how do you find your build date?

Neck sticker?  :-[

Do you mean the VIN? Still stumped!

the black and white sticker right next to the stamped VIN on the neck. move some wires obscuring parts of it and you should see

the owners manual also shows how to decode the VIN to find the build date. somewhere else I've seen it also, but can't remember
