Welcome. Aside from a couple high mileage niggles, they are a pretty solid bike. FPR failures and tank leaks are common faults, but are able to be remedied. Most common complaint is fuel mapping at street (low) rpm IMO. They like to buck below 3300 rpm or so if you don't run a PC and a better map. Personally I just kept it in 1st gear most of the time and avoided the burps.
Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound
