80 deg is too warm...65 is better, less bugs and bareable when sitting at a traffic light!

The Orange Bike stigma isn't any better or worse than a lot of other bikes that have issues. In my case DRZ's and stators. We tend to put a lot of miles on our bikes and a lot of those miles aren't kind ones. Stuff is going to break or wear out. Just my two cents worth.

that seems overly complex for a clutch mechanism to me, hydraulic, into the gear box?

what does that offer over a simple cable+ lever setup?

Fuck if I know, I've used both cable and hydraulic systems, had failures in both. Don't have any preference really.
