Thanks for the replies, I'm still looking into purchasing a Bullet Classic. I would have to say that all the talk about these bikes needing constant mechanical care does scare me. Not sure I want to purchase a new 2007 or 2008 bike that need to be worked on all the time. Sounds kinda crazy to me. Well these are just thoughts...I do like how they look and sound.. guess I will keep researching and thinking about my purchase.
It's when you get into trying to upgrade the bikes performance capabilities is when you will get into high maintenance.

After break in, I'll probably want to upgrade to one of the standard performance kits with freer exhaust, air filter, a carb rejetting, and possibly a slightly larger front sprocket to give the bike longer legs.Is this the kind of performance upgrade that can reduce the bike's reliability?
