Valvetrain noise on these bikes is noticable- they are not Honda's. Even in the 60-70s they were somewhat noisy. The oil leak shou;ld be an easy fix tho. Like said- warranty 24/unl mi. Ride it ! If it should take a ***** on you - got docs- fix or replace. Gonna be a while - get a loaner till fixxed. Mine has been Honda reliable so far (knock on wood). Good luck & good ridin!! :) :cool:

PS You gotta remember there are 2 pistons going up & down @ the same time, and multiple counter-balancers working as well. Noise pollution is one of the biggies why there will be no more aircooled bikes in the near future. I am sure they wil get it fixed rite or replace it. Enjoy it ! Ill venture a guess that this will be the last year of Bonne's Thrux etc.. A modern classic that will soon be just that - A REAL CLASSIC. :cool:
