There has to be some owners out somewhere. I would like to know how good they are. I spoke to a guy who has done 30 hrs on his and loves it. The steel inlet valves are supposed to last longer and ( unlike the crfx it is based on) its supposed to keep the battery charged on its own. He had the carby modified to stop the bogging problem and the suspension tuned. He has ridden a lot of bikes and says its on par with performance. At $7500 in aus i would be willing to try one. I could have the suspension tuned and fit a system for well under the price of a new jap bike. First hand experience would be great but would like to hear opinion also. Thanks.
