What to Expect

Early twin shocker needs alloy swinging arm, decent shocks and Metz tyres to handle well. Mono-shock version better until linkages wear. 16 valve engine tough until 50k when cam, valve and alternator hassles. If valve maintenance’s neglected the top end goes down rapidly. Half or full fairing models. Chassis rot gets to them eventually, twitchy front end means many were dropped.
