What to Expect

Update on the G5 with plainer styling, better suspension, no electric start. More reliable engine could run to 30,000 miles before the camshaft bearings went again, though neglect of oil changes can halve that. Usual exhaust, disc and paint rot; carb diaphragm splits and rectifier leads break off. Rebore at 35k and big-ends at 50k when the whole bike is just about finished off.
