What to Expect

Tough engine, 100k plus, in heavy, reasonable chassis. Needs new Metz’s to handle…comes into the power at 90mph, weaves at 120mph and speed wobbles at 130mph. Clutch rattle, rough tickover, normal, should have instant throttle response. Electrical burn-outs, blown fork seals, chronic problems. New 95hp version in Japan in ’94.
