What to Expect

One of the original vee-fours that was largely sidelined by its bigger brothers’ top end problems. It handles well and sings along on the back of reasonable power and silky delivery. Age turns the gearbox nasty, hydraulic clutch strange and camchain tensioners savage. Usually it went for 30-50,000 miles. Expensive to service, needs special tool for the valves, clutch and seal can go, whilst suspension bearings and fork seals blow.
