- Tranny output shaft. I did the research, mine is circlip-free. Doesn't sound terribly expensive, except in labor terms. Cuanto es esto?
These are my top three priorities, as they can all be stranders, and I like to ride this bike. I just can't do 'em all at once.
Have any of these given you trouble?

Some say that the valves start dropping after about 45-50k miles.

Personally I'd concentrate on sympathetic mods that improve the ride such as the seat and front brake.
