I have one and rate it. you need a bigger tank as the standard runs out at 90 miles.
Also if you look at one make sure that Dave's mods have been done and it has a easier breathing exhaust ie Q4 or the like.
Dave is a merican feller and a guru on these bikes, As standard they run mega lean which is ok but means they run very very hot and the altitude adjuster is not enough to richen the mix up much. but it starts with putting an 0.20 washer on the needle and drilling the hole in the diaphram case out to 5/32 then filing the alt adjuster so that you can in effect over adjust it this brings the running temp down to a less scarey level.
