Everything was just pancaked together, to get to one thing you had to remove a million other things. I thought it was ridiculous for such a simple bike.
This might not be in the spirit of this thread (the bike was still fun to drive around), but it was such a pain to work on I just wanted to get rid of it. I've had a few other Honda's from this design era (Super 90, CB160, SL350) and they all seemed to be frustrating to work on. Not that they were impossible, I just didn't enjoy that aspect of ownership as much as I do with my DRZ or Tiger 955i.
