Cheesy a$$ horn = flaw replaced mine with a PIAAA duel Slimline
Oil sight bubble = seriously lacking especially with the 45 degree slant while on the kickstand
Kickstand = flaw WTF! down here in the sunny south you run across a lot of thin melty asphalt in parking lots, I've left a few divots where the stand was startin' to sink in. The wild angle puts more weight to bear on the stand, just a poor design.
. . . . . . a parking puck from Cycle Gear is now in my bag works like a champ.
The pipes I don't mind, visually it was one of the things that first caught my eye, I wish the sound was better, but a drill can help that a little.
First gear drive-train engagement CLUNK! = disappointing WTF Yamaha you can do better. I am used to it now, the stuttering at low speeds between gears is offset by learning to use the clutch appropriately. But that 1st CLUNK is definitely tacky.
