Well, when I first got it, it wouldn't crank when hot. Had to buy another starter and an AGM battery to cure this.
Seat was wore out, recovered it.
I found my charging system was weak, bought a new voltage regulator / rectifier for it. I found bad connections between the stator and regulator too.
Carbs needed a good cleaning out. Someone used this 10% ethanol gas in it and fouled the carbs up. Use straight premium gas in these bikes to be trouble free.
Had to replace the petcock too.
Now that work has been performed on this machine, it is a reliable and fun bike to ride.
If the bike was properly taken care of, we would not have these problems with it.
The right gasoline makes all the difference in the world with these old bikes.
It gets good gas mileage too.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
