I get on here everyday and read about everyones issues ! I bought my 01 off a WERA racer in 2011 I dont the history of this bike before the racer had it he raced it a couple years and won on it ! It is bone stock except for pipe and being jetted . I have never had an issue with this bike 3 lowsides last year and an 80+ off 2 weeks ago at Gateway that messed me up but minimal damage to bike ! I went out hit the start button and fired right up runs like a scalded dog ! So anyway I feel for everyone thyat has issues with their 1st Gens I guess I got one that is bullet and everything else proof !!
