+1 more or less. The subframe can crack after heavy use but is easily welded, as it is mild steel. But it makes sense to have a spare subframe if one can get one cheap.

The swing arm pivot bolt is known to get stuck, and the frame pipes can rust under the engine.

That is about is as far as I know.
