Just been to the manx on mine and it ran nicely thanks, it dealt with the rain (and there was a lot!) and the miles and returned decent fuel economy - no idea what as the speedo sensor has gone and no idea of the mileage.
Only issues I've had are the speedo pickup which I think is common, and the wires behind the fairing on the rhs are exposed to the elements and one corroded and broke. In all fairness the bike has done 37K and I chucked it over a roundabout (my Fault).
I've had an issue with weight on the wrists due to my height and the way I sit, on the way back from the Manx I got right behind the tank so my elbows were on my thighs and the steering lightened up, so I think I'm over the bars too much and its screwing up the steering and making my wrists suffer. To stop my elbows sitting on my thighs I'm going to move the bars forward ( standard position is crap for anyone over 6" anyway) and the fact I have the longest arms in the world doesn't help!
The engine is noisy but it had no effect on reliability, its just a wet liner engine and they're all loud! But I put semi synth in just cos I had it and wanted to change the oil for the journey, but I'm going to change back to full synth and I'd like to use a 15W-40 if I can find any to stop the cold clatter.
All in all its been good to me so far, without many issues that weren't self inflicted.
