I bought it used in 2006 with 34,000 miles on it for $1,000.00.
Shocks blown out. The front shocks were rebuilt with new seals.
Rear tire bald. Replaced rear tire.
Carburetor cleaned, and rejetted.
Clutch not working. Rebuilt the hydraulic clutch.
Gas line leaked. Replaced hose, and connection.
Battery died. Replaced battery.
This bike is currently 25 years old. Therefore, I would expect that some components would need to be replaced.
However, this bike is a tank, and sleeper.
It is a bit overweight, doesn't have the handling of more modern sportbikes, and doesn't have the top speed of more modern sportbikes.
However, this bike is extremely reliable, and in my opinion will run forever. It starts right up every time. Not once has it failed me except for when the battery was dead.
This bike is extremely powerful as well, and the front end wants to come off the ground when accelerating heavily.
There is a wicked powerband once you reach 8,000 R.P.M., where it just takes off. I had this bike up to 140 M.P.H. and was really scared.
You can putt around or just cruise in 5th gear, and then open the throttle all the way and hit 110-120 M.P.H. easy without downshifting.
The handling is not all that great, and a bit uncomfortable for long distance traveling.
I'd have to say this in one the first Japanese "True" Sportbikes admitted into the United States in the 1980s.
