Best $1600 I ever spent
Replaced leaking front seals at 3500 in 2002, and at 56k in 2011. The first time was age, and the second time was due to use.
Carb cleaning had been done when I got the bike. Cleaned again at 53k. Also replaced OEM plugs; still in good shape.
Chains and sprockets about every 16k.
Replaced a bad cooling fan switch after getting the bike.
Front brakes leaking rebuilt at 4k in 02. New pads again at about 25k and 50k.
This is my first bike, and I have done 4 cross country trips solo with no problems. I am 6'1, 225, and have no problems with long days, but did install a sport shield to get the wind off my chest.
Mileage is 56 MPG at 55.
A small old bike that can stay with the big bikes to the point of being annoying.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
