looking at maybe buying a street legal yzf400.  wifes car is breaking down and I want to get something to put to work and back (and obviously take out to the desert) and let her take my car until we can figure out her ride situation.


anyway, whats the maintenance like on these?  I have always been a 2-stroke KX guy, and my dad had Honda XR400's when I was growing up.  Will this bike be able to handle ~20mi/day for a few weeks/month?  The seller says the maintenance has been maintained, valves adjusted accordingly, etc.  Or is this bike going to blow up on me after a week or two of riding to work?



EDIT: also says top end is fresh
