Hey guys and gals,

My EX500 racebike is my first EX. I was wondering if the EX is notorius for anything like eating bearings, blowing gaskets or anything. I'm asking just to make sure I know what to keep an eye on more than usual. Any info on little quirks/faults the bike has would be appreciated. Thanks in advance,

Brad.

I knew they were engine wise for the most part, I was mostly reffering to bearings, electrical parts etc.

All of the above. as a race bike. mind the revs absolutlly do not exceed 10500 RPM ever. up Shift @10 downshift @8500.

Keep the oil full, check it a lot change it often.
