I originally thought it was the best deal in a cruiser out there
Have replaced voltage regulator 3 times.
Starter clutch and starter failed at 53K. C'mon Yamaha, admit this is a design issue!
TPS (choke) has never worked correctly.
In general, I like this bike. It's quick, nimble and fun to ride.
Mileage is a little disappointing, averages about 35 m.p.g.
The stock seat is a butt burner... replaced with a Mustang.
Putting a voltage regulator under a cosmetic cover near the exhaust pipes is just plain stupid.
Ditto for the internal oil filter that requires removing the footboard and the front exhaust pipe. Installed a relocate kit.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know
