Summary:

Remarkable!

Faults:

Had to change the two transmission chains.

Will have clean the carters off of the metal chips.

Will to calibrate one of the valves; it's clicking.

Will have to change the valve over gaskets.

Will have to buy a new front fender.

The cat damaged the seat.

Found out it only has 4 shifts instead of five.

General Comments:

Regardless of all above, it's a very hot motorcycle.

The seat is uncomfortable, needs a lumbar support.

It's been modified to a very nice retro look.

It's a handsome machine heavy, but soft on the ride.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
