Most of these are operator error and no fault of the engine itself but sometimes I just want to toss my bike in the river and buy a $300 moped from craigslist. sorry, had to vent.
The moped would be great for a bit and then you would be in the same mess.
You need to get into a maintenance plan.
I was driving a 30 yr old motorbike and got feeling the same way.
Bought a $5000 street legal 450 Husaberg MX bike and only got one season out of it. Connecting rod broke, $3000+ to repair.
Back to the 30yr old streetbike...
