|About 3,2 to 3,5 /100km unleaded fuel. If consumption is steadily more than 4 litres then You should necessarily synchronize the carburators !|
|Oil consumption:||There should no measurably oil consumption, if You ( hopefully ) make an oil change every 3500 km or more often.|
|Drive-Belt||Can last more than 40.000 km if You maintain it from time to time with a little bit of vegetable oil (no joke!)|
|Handling||Due to little weigth it is very handy. Problems with shimmy or oscillation are not nature of the bike. Often bad bearings or tyres or saddlebags are the cause|
|Lifetime of engine||The engine can last over 100.000km despite their high rotations. What is essential for such a lifetime is an oil change at regular intervals and soft revs as long as the engine is cold|
|Warm-Up||If the engine is cold the engine-head is lubricated only with old oil from the las tour! So You have to avoid high revs and strong acceleration until motor-oil is warm. It needs about 25km to reach optimum working-temperature of 100° to 140° (Celsius)
Remember: cold oil is pasty and cannot pass small openings.
Remember: one wheelie with cold engine is the same wear as a 1000km tour
