Why is there so much Info on this sight about engine failure and not as much on others? I've owned 5 and never had any problems . The info on this site seems to show C50s being more prone to engine failure than a Volusia ? Why is that ? Same motor nothing different than FI .

buy cheap sell high !

No need. Lets be super generous and say there are 1000 threads from individual people with catastrophic engine failure problems. Of which, 100% were regularly serviced by all owners of the bike and well looked after.

Even that unrealistic extreme only comes to 3.2% of total members on the forum.

It's nonsense. As I said a few salty members either bought a lemon or just neglected their bikes and have spent their time ever since trashing the bike in the echo chamber. Its quite sad really.

They are decent bikes and very cheap on the used market . For the price hard to beat . It's funny people on here can tell you tons of info on engine failure but it took two weeks for someone to answer my question about a fuel valve . I appreciate the member who answered seems like some senior members would have known .

This is like a tag team thing. You guys should do a Pay per View event.

Why? it's great entertainment. I drop in for a minute. Poke a stick, go about my day and come back to see what feathers I have ruffled. You can't buy this stuff.

I'll bet you a hundred bucks I'm more Southern than you. You are going to have to go to 1642 to beat me at that game. My family is strewn throughout the South. Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tenessee, I'm certain I'm missing a few.
