But she a girl and probably rides like one.
I sold my original Pig with well over 10k miles on it. The new owner still rides it to work every day it doesn't rain. Longest lasting ht I've ever seen by far.
It was one of the rare RICO kits with the red plastic insert in the clutch lever. Every one of the three RICO motors I've run was much better quality than the average HT, but it's just luck to get one as nobody sells them exclusively. They seem to just show up randomly once in a great while. (I've only had three in over 20-25 kits ordered from my vendor.)
If more is better, then too much is just enough.
If you can't afford it, build it yourself.
