|Good low end power (Score:1)|
Good low end power. Six speed tranny gear spacing is excellent. The bike I rode had aftermarket reeds and pipe. Power delivery is smooth and predictable.
Seat height was good for my height (almost 6 ft). Control layout is typical for this era enduro bike.
Stock front suspension is a little soft for my liking. Heavier fork oil may help.
Rear suspension is a little too harsh. Could use some shock reworking.
Drum brakes just don't cut it after getting used to disc brakes.
Very good bike for this era. I like it much better than the Suzuki and Kawasaki bikes of this vintage.
