Got a K2, eh? It should be just fine. If you keep all fasteners adjusted properly and grease your bearings and align your rear wheel and sprocket just right, that K2 won't notice much.
Having a good bike with good components helps. I run an old JC Higgins with a solid, welded-steel frame, well-greased bearings all around, Worksman wheels all trued and alligned, solidly seated engine mounts, and everything nicely bolted down and inspected regularly. I ride it every chance I get and it barely needs anything from me besides fuel.
