Best bike I have ever owned!
Replaced 2 clutch cables.
Tach drive seal and valve cover gasket.
Constantly readjusting cam chain.
Front brake master cylinder got stuck.
The first time I rode this bike, I fell in love with it. When I bought it, it had sat in a garage for a couple of years with only occasional engine starts.
Even the seat was in good condition with no rips or holes.
Over the years that I have had it, I have replaced the rear tire about 1 a year with about 9000 miles. The fronts go about 2 years each. Air ride both front and rear are trouble free. The bike also still has the original factory pipes that show no sign of rusting out.
During the summer I drive this bike daily, and on the interstate highway, and she just runs along at the posted speed for as long as I need it to, and when I need it, she has the power to spare. I get on average 43 MPG.
I feel this bike will run for as long as I keep regular with the maintenance, oil changes at 3000 miles and cam chain adjustment every 2000. This spring it got new paint on the tank and side covers. The old factory paint had started to peel and the clear coat was badly sun damaged.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
