What sums this bike up for me?
 
* had Koni back shock absorber
 
* bad front shock absorber
 
* oil leaking cylinder head<ref>Typical for the XL500 engine</ref>
 
* something loose in the exhaust
 
* simple tech, easy to fix and maintain
 
* good handling
 
* Schuh mount and cases, looking not very stable but never let me down
 
* won't start if not used for 14 days. Also when temperatures below zero. Unfortunately the FT is missing the XL's kickstart. :-(
 
* pretty ugly :-)

* a beauty
 
* badly designed ignition box, after "adjusting"<ref>The garage removed some resistors</ref> it, the hickup below 5000rpm was gone
 
* weak Sachs back shock absorber, died after 15Mm, exchanged it for one with handwheel for adjustment, luckily I could convince someone in italy<ref>Yes, if had to talk to some italian call center...</ref> to get it on warranty
 
* Hepco and Becker sucks - those folks even denied that there is such thing as resonance frequency, which was in fact exactly at 4000rpm, wenn the whole mount began shaking and buzzing
 
* loosing screws
 
* a beauty<ref>Am I repeating myself?</ref>
