The issues you list must be taken in context and none of them apply to the 2018 bikes or the four cylinder bikes.

You must know WHAT you are reading......

The forums are there for people who have problems....not the thousands and thousands who do not.

Perform your maintenance to the schedule and the bike will be a great joy for a hundred thousand miles or more.
I agree. There are no moving parts in a pencil, but you still have to sharpen it once in awhile. And it's not nearly as fast. The worse thing you can do is to let it sit, like I do, and then the stuff breaks anyway, all by itself. Ride it and do the maintenance.

Failure is not an option
