The bike is selling for 750eur, it's apparently well kept, has a classic bike certificate, but also an unspecified clutch fault. I'm going to contact the owner soon and plan on seeing the bike on the 16th. It looks clean on the pictures. I want to ask you about the major faults of the 500 motor. I heard it doesn't destroy cams like the bigger V4s, but that it also has fragile wrist pins and poor valve springs, both of which can cause catastrophic failures if the engine is redlined often or worse, overrevved. How prone are the engines to this exactly? Are electrical issues common? What should I be wary of? Also, is the rear shock rebuildable, or is it a single use unit like on my first bike? I am not afraid of mechanical work. I did a significant amount of restorative work to my first bike, but I don't want to go into it uninformed.
