Have not seen a later model that I would swap
Fusible link blew.
Stator failed, shorted out.
Front fork oil seal failed, leaked oil.
Drive spline in rear wheel chewed out.
Ignition switch had to be replaced.
I had a sheepskin seat cover made to fit, and long distant comfort is very good.
Highway pegs on the engine bar make a real difference.
The engine seems to like to cruise around 130kph when loaded with camping gear.
I have fitted new cam chains and tensioners, along with normal oil and filter changes every 5000k.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
