Good luck finding a bike

See

Technical / Top Tips/Initial Servicing Guide

If you go through your bike front to back yourself and service/check then you'll go a long way towards reliability.

Welcome aboard Alex, and the very best of luck. Don't dismiss the 350's in your search- they may not have as much umph, but having an electric start for when people are around is a god send. If you find you need more power, there are modifications that can be done...

Hi Alex, MTs are for old farts only! :lol: Only joking hope you find a good one. They're great fun and don't take much cleaning.
