What to Expect

Popular shaftie, either thrashed by DR’s or has an easy life as a tourer. Electrics, ign and exhaust can die at relatively low miles but most engines survived for at least 50k, some have done 75k. Shaft drive can turn twitchy on the overrun, especially after 50k. Occasional gearbox problems around 25k. Some clocked bikes, thrashing can run the engine dry of oil.
