Summary:

Next is KTM

Faults:

Nothing.

If you do lay it on the left, your front fender will catch the radiator guard. Still have shoe lace holding it in place.

General Comments:

Power?

Seat?

Brakes?

Took it to Deal's Gap and had a blast.

Took the local cross trail and had a blast.

$1000.00 more and you'll have a great bike.

Faults:

At 600 miles I put in a new chain balance tensioner (only faulty part).

At 10,000 miles I did a slight valve adjustment.

At 28,000 miles my radiator temperature bulb went out.

It's a low performance, but low maintenance enduro. Good bike.

Summary:

Lots of fun, back to a simple motorcycle, do it all machine

Faults:

Nothing wrong... it all works.

General Comments:

Lots of bang for the buck. Simply a motorcycle, does short rides, long rides and commutes all with finesse. The thing just works... gets better when broken in... maybe about 2000 miles. Would have another when this one gets tired.

The seat is good for about one hour before your bootie needs rest.
