Bearing failure at 12000km.
Electrics were problematic - battery failed at 10000km along with frequent other gremlins.
Handlebar lock is separate from the ignition and has broken 4 times to date.
Ignition switch has also failed and needed replacement.
Kick-start gear broke at 12000km.
Accelerator/odometer cable gear broke at 14000km.
Persistent cold start problem, which refuses to be fixed, even after timing, plugs,ignition coil, carburrettor were all checked.
Accident damage caused the entire front suspension assembly replacement -- parts were not available for this interim model, and I had to fit RX100 forks which incidentally, are better than the originals.
Performance is excellent -- no complaints there and every ride is pure joy.
I love the acceleration, the smooth power of the engine, and the lovely exhaust note.
Handling is good, but hampered by the brakes which are drums all around and poor. Replacing them with discs is not economical as the forks need replacement too.
Original headlamp was very weak, which I had to replace with halogens
Fuel economy is ok -- only 30km/l
Main complaint is the quality - so many things should not go wrong, especially with such low mileage
