Speed sensor - water ingress, seal with silicone
Oil leak on crankseal - eventually repaid by dealer (subject to tech bulletin from MG)
Electrics to the fuel pump - connector failed (in Austria) - traced eventually to the wiring on the 4 way Amp plug
Cams - warranty fix (all early ones)
Fork leg axle casting cracked across the pinch bolts - post warranty but foixed FOC by MG
Poor fueling - eventually went for PCV5 and a reflashed ECU, made it like a new bike
