1 DL had the shifter pivot loosen and fall off, other than that oil and filters only. I rode the piss out of them, but almost all road miles. Never even had to change a battery. My riding buddy had a gs1150a, rode 100k with just few minor issues, and only one stranding that wasn't the bikes fault (shorted power commander). I loved riding my Gs, but I wouldn't trust it to go across town without something going wrong. It sure put the "adventure" in adventure ride.....
I guess we'll see how the super t performs
