I've got a '95.
Good to know about the balancer chain. I'll look at that tonight, since I'm going to recheck my valves. I adjusted them Saturday, but they are really tappy, so I'm going to double check.
I've built a homemade rack for mine, I have some pelican cases mounted to the sides, and a Givi case on top.
It had 4k miles when I bought it about a year ago, now it has 14k, it's been a ton of fun.
I've been pondering the big acerbis tank... I'm thinking about trying to order one with my next paycheck.
