I have about 50 000 km on mine, no electrical problems YET.
I have a friend with about 150 000 km on her 2000 and I don't remember hearing a story about electrical problems.
Hell though, if you have the cash and the spare room to carry that stuff, go ahead.
990SMT, 640A, TXC450, TE510, ATC350X, ATC200ES, 550MXC, BW200. Need more space in garage.
