"It's been very reliable. I do valve adjustments on a regular basis because it's got old-fashioned, screw-type adjusters. I've done it probably 15 times over the years and it's gotten so I can do all of them in 45 minutes from start to finish. I give it regular oil changes as well, and that's about it for maintenance. There was a point at 60,000 miles when it needed new tires, so I put on Dunlop GT501s. They last for about 3000 miles and stick pretty well. They're bias-ply, though, and taller than the original tires so you have to raise the front fender for clearance. I cut the fork springs to stiffen them up because the front end was going wobbly, but that's about all I've done.
