I took this photo back in 87, be good if its still rolling, the lad had had 3 cb900 motors in and all had failed, one replaced under warranty, so put this 1075 unit in, and loved it, hope its still around. :)

Hi all
now we know the truth about the bulletproof reputation of the Kawasaki engines: 1 Kawasaki engine is worth more than 3 Hodna engines !

Haven't always found Hodna bikes to be as reliable as their reputation.

Had similar with BMW (cars). Not quite the quality Bavarian Engineering and Teutonic build quality the press would have you believe.

Ask a merc owner how reliabl;e their cars are.

They'll tell you nothing has gone wrong....execpt the boot wouldn't open...and the water pump went....and there'sthose recalls.

Oh and the dodgy electrics...

Yes, If I see a car by the side of the road it's often Audi or BM. Paying a premuim price doesn't always mean getting better reliability - over complex?
I think Mercs were better a decade or so ago as many rate them for taxiing.

The problem nowadays is that there is too much electronics and not enough reliability in vehicles!
Look at our old Zeds, give them fuel and a spark and the engine runs.
