Yep that is the 800 dollar one. Thought it was time to try a water cooled one. I love these motors.
My current BoXer from Piplyne is holding up awesome with the 9.4 S6S I got @ over 2000 miles now. I really never carry tools just a quart of extra fuel for very long journeys nothing ever comes loose.
Cranks etc came loose a couple of times seating in. I eventually personally myself set the cold setting on the rear wheel spokes when settling in now I got absolutely notta perfection! I just ride it like a horse in the Westerns relentlessly cracking the whip to both sides lol.
My 5.8 hp one never had probs with spokes ether. I sure thought it would. What I learned about spokes is if they are not teinsioned tight properly they loosen back up. I got mine pretty tight and they work perfect.
I think the guy that I let re-lace my last wheel just wanted repeat business the crooked way? I lazily tightened up loose spokes when I found them about every 300 miles. Then finally just went over all of them and no more probs since then they are as tight as I last left them.
I thought about building another bike? I think I will just get another BoXer it does everything I want it to do. I tear up the city streets with it as a main stay of transpo. With nothing to fix on this one the only best thing left for being board is build another.
