Re: Honda bulletproof?
I'm at 74,400 miles on my '92 FLHS and the drive train is starting to rattle a bit (loose rocker arms most likely as the pushrods are tight). So, in a year or so I'll be doing a top end rebuild. But the tranny, clutch, suspension and nearly everything else are in good shape. The odd bit that has needed fixing (voltage regulator, shifter return spring) was easy and cheap to fix.
Now, my '02 Triumph on the other hand with only 10,800 miles on it, although repair-free to date, I'm afraid to touch. It took me a whole weekend just to check the valve lash.
I can check valve lash on my '70 Tiger in-between sips of coffee.
I'll tell you honestly, if I never had to go over 65 mph I would sell all my bikes, but that old Triumph!
