Summary:

Love it, the best bike I've owned

Faults:

The timing chain was replaced just before I bought it.

The front disc brake was replaced.

The bike had a different sprocket put on the back wheel to gear it down.

Cosmetically sad.

General Comments:

This bike is perfect for an experienced younger rider.

Nice and light, and maneuverable for big motor.

Good jumping bike.

Goes hard (for a four stroke).

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
