Does anyone here have some info on this bike? Like common problems, upgrades, where to buy parts etc? I just picked one up as a play thing and I need new plastic on the front, new ignition switch (not necessary but its pretty worn), and the speedo doesn't read speed. Just small stuff I'd like to fix up and I'd like to learn more about the bike. Thanks! So far I've only found after market fuel tanks by Clarke (4gal).

As with all old bikes places like ebay and specialty websites/forums will be your best bet.
You'll have to do some searching but I'd bet you'll find most of the parts you need.
You may have to make do with parts from different year models or from the after market, in some cases you may even have to fabricate parts.
Suck is the life of an old bike lover, lol

Thanks budd. I was looking at ebay, seemed like a lot of generic parts that "totally fit your bike!" lol. I have been perusing the other forums, but not a ton of info on these things. I'll keep perusing ebay with my fingers crossed.

They are not too bad off road, just not real fast, not a boatload of torque.

They will cook the fuel out of the bowl if you run them too hard, too long.
