That's my feeling too - maintenence periods are quoted in HOURS not in terms of 1,000's of miles like any "normal" bike.
My 525 MXC is great fun, and I'd dearly like to get a comfy seat for it and take it on some long distance trips, but I'm concerned that its just gonna blow up at the worst possible time.
Convince me otherwise, and I'll take it with me to Norway and back at the end of next month. Otherwise, its beginning to look like I'll br acquiring and taking an XR400.
