I have 3 of this same model, does that say I like it?
Oil line leak at 25,000.
Clean carbs twice in 85,000.
Many batteries, tires, oil changes in 85,000.
New jet needles and needle jets in carbs at 80k, mileage dropped from 43 to 39, now at 45 mpg.
Fast, reliable, more a tourer than sport bike, have made many modifications to make it safer, more reliable, and comfortable.
Added a battery switch, light switch, wider seat, windshield, bent handlebars back, throttle rocker, forward foot pegs, backrest for passengers, backpack on backrest, cup holder, turn signal buzzer, advanced timing and K&N added 2-3 mpg, primer switch added to get gas to carbs sooner, raised handlebars 1.5 inch.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
