What to Expect

Old style Jap bruiser – too much power trying to beat too much mass and too little frame, further complicated by shaft drive. Engine tough but check camchain rattle at 30k and crank end float at 40k. Needs Phantoms, Konis and fork brace. XS1.1S variant handles better, may have exploding gearbox! Major engine hassles, chassis and electrical rot at 50k plus.
