So far, I have had only one issue and that could be because I didn't use a battery tender. It's been cold where I live and the battery doesn't enjoy the cold. So I had one time, the bike didn't want to start. With a battery tender, it starts even though it sits for most of the week in the garage.

all good so far, handles amazing off road in my opinion. Ive ridden mostly dirt bikes my whole life and it feels like one, nimble and stable, predictable slides. All seems well built for off road except the front fender does not provide enough coverage to protect the engine and radiator. and radiator guard is crap, needs louvres. A catalytic converter delete would do you well if your dragging over logs and such. I haven't beat it up enough to really know the weak points, but as far as it can tell she will hold up just fine, over built if anything. cheers
