My 2002 ST has now done nearly 60,000 miles and has been all over Europe and UK. It has been very good, reliable transport. I use my bikes (I have two) as main transport all year round so it has not had a particularly gentle life.
Problems have been few, normal servicing (I do my own) plus a new alternator stator, new R&R, new clutch plates (not really needed, the old ones were within tolerance), two batteries, brake pistons and seals, new cam chain and tensioner spring and then some problems just recently.
This started with a sudden high idle that eventually I cured with a new stepper motor, new Idle Control Valve and new vacuum hoses. I then had to bring it to a dealer (shame!) to have the idle resets redone. It is now running well again. I don't think it excels at anything much but is good or very good at everything.
Worst points for me have been the lights and the brakes that seem to need constant attention to eliminate excessive lever travel. I keep meaning to fit some Hayabusa calipers but have never got around to it!
Best points: fast, handling good for a big lump (WP shock on rear) and low 50s mpg on a long run, relaxed, fast, long distance tourer. I can just about reach the ground on it at 5'6" so good for shorties too!
When I have worn this one out I will probably get another one!
