The only one I seen that could cause an issue is their voltage regulator going out and it not charging the battery.
Suzuki's weren't frying the ECU...there is a recall on the voltage regulator due to bad epoxy being used by the MFG.

Yamaha's had problems in early years with the R1's trashing 2nd gears but if you properly shift then it never happens...40K miles on my R1, original tranny never a problem.

Kawi had ecu issues.

Honda had cam chain tensioners and oil pickup problems...just ask the stunters who trashed their engines due to the oil pickups.


It doesn't matter what brand you buy, they have all had their problems at one time or another.

Big misconception about that , riding a sport bike isn't hard on your back , i broke my back on a bike years ago and riding a sport bike doesn't bother me at all ..
its hardest on your neck , and your triceps .... but not bad if your in decent shape

i agree, grip your tank with your legs to support your body, no back problems.

Totally agree. I rode 250 miles straight. And my neck hurt a bit as well as my arms and shoulders. But my back was perfectly fine.

Re: Motor Cycles

So Joshy, are you buying a bike or a v8 mustang? Or are you loaded to the point where you can buy both? Because if that's the case pick me up a '10 Honda CBR 600 in wrapped in "Leyla"...my 85 Shadow needs a sport bike companion

Lol. I'm just considering my options and seeing what you guys think about it. I figure I have a few options. Either a 03-04 Mach 1 or a 01 cobra or a bike of some kind

Well if your insurance quotes on a sport bike are anywhere near what mine were (and you're younger than me), I'd say you'll be going with the car option

The best insurance company for motorcycles is State Farm...as long as you have a clean record and a car insured with them it'll be around $400-500 a year full coverage because they only go by engine size not by type. Next would be riders insurance if they are in your state.

Progressive goes by classification and engine size which equals outrageous.

Progressive quoted me $4800 a year with full coverage and a $1000 deductible on my R1....State Farm with a $250 deductible is $420 a year full coverage.

Shop around

Re: Motor Cycles

I pay $275/year from state farm for full coverage with 100 dollar deductible, and I'm 27 with nothing on my record. Bikes are cheap.
