To me the seats do not hold up like they should. The stock first seat that came on the bike I had it recovered only after 2 or three years. Now in all fairness I do ride the bike almost every day. The Jap bikes I bought used ten years old+ and the seats were still factory, no tears etc. Now the Goldwing I bought had the seat eaten off by cows, ha, ha. So the first seat I had recovered, it lasted a good long time. Now I have got a Mustang seat a Daytripper, narrower than stock lets me sit lower to the ground. The electrical switch controls on my bike corroded up inside way to soon after about a year the way I remember it I had to take them apart, clean the green crud out then I used die-electric grease in them, been fine since. Some other little nitpick crap also. I have got a 2011 XR so it has the noisey torque limiter, I try to ignore the noise in the lower gears. Those torque limiter parts are kind of pricey, have tooooo many other things taking away my bike repair money right now, ha, ha. ........ overall I still think they are very good bikes.
