This carb model is perfect for me , I am in my seventies and can do the maintenance on this model as easily as the old models . I have removed the air control , rejected and drilled out the exhausts to get the performance and noise of my old bikes . My wife-who still pillions with me- says I will never grow up , lets hope not!!!!!
It's a relatively heavy bike but on the move its a fun bike to ride.
It's major downfall is the basic suspension.
Overall, very happy with it.
