Well done. Now you see why we recommend small light bikes for beginners. A lot of weight complicates everything. Still, a KZ650 isn't a very heavy bike. Imagine if you bought a Honda VTX1800. Or the BossHoss that the AirHawk recommends to everyone.

The KZ650 has a drum rear brake. Drum brakes are not linear and can lock with less pressure than one might normally think. Make sure that the pedal has an inch or so of free play. You adjust the play with the knob/nut on the drum lever.
