So far, the bike's been real easy to work on. I love the engine, it's very simple; much easier to work on than the RFVC. There are big bore kits available up to 460cc and with the 250, 350 ,street, and offroad versions, there are a number on interchangeable engine components.
The flexible chassis is an issue, but maybe I can get that sorted out. I'd love to have this engine in a CRF250 chassis; that'd be a lot of fun.
