Easy to work on. If the bike comes with the tool kit, you'll only need a few basic tools to work on it as most of the bolts and hexes are the same few sizes. The only things you'd probably need specialty tools for would be timing, valve maintenance, fork internals/fluid jobs, or a complete motor rebuild. With just regular oil changes, chain maintenance, keeping the brakes up to spec, and other 'duh' maintenance things, the bike should run for a long long time without needing a major rebuild. My bike has 18,000 miles and both times I had it checked it's valves were spot on.

If you're lost as to where to find aftermarket stuff, check out the aftermarket parts thread stickied up top.

I have one and I love the hell out of it. Some of the aftermarket parts are a bit difficult to find but other than that you're about to buy one h*ll of a motorcycle.

I have 26K on my '01, and it has been trouble free, and a hell of a lot of fun. Make sure you get the recalls checked on the clutch cable and fuel tank fittings.

Mine is an 03 and I love it. I ditched the stock seat for the Triumph gel seat and the mirrors for CRG bar ends. The CRG's are expensive but worth every penny. I found the stock seat and ass burner. The gel seat is not great but better than stock.

I also had an updated fuel map installed by my dealer (no cost). This made the bike run smoother between 2500-4000 rpm.

'01s are great bikes, I've had mine almost 2 yrs. now, and it's been awesome. The last of the good looking Speedys in my book. I'll never sell mine, it just continues to evolve. I miss it badly right now, 4 months no ridey (winte in WI, 2ft of snow in the last three days). That's ok though, bodywork should be back from paint any day now. Enjoy your new ride, and keep the rubber side down, at least the rear one anyhow! :wink:
