What to Expect

Along with the RVF version, popular in Japan and as a grey import here, though for sheer complexity the vee four mill fair takes the breath away. It’s a very smooth running bike and any example that exhibits rough running or carburation should be avoided. Difficult engine to maintain and repair. Electrics, brakes and finish suffer in British winters, examples with more than 40 thou can experience valve and cam wear. Some blow up without any warning!
