you can come up with, nothing that is due to owner error
but things that are due to design flaw. Maybe something as a dead spot in the RPM's, or the stator going out quickly. Perhaps maybe lag throttle. I would appreciate it if you guys could help me out with this.
Charging system is the major problem with Honda.
Pretty sure there was a recall to replace '04/'05 charging system components with the '06/'07 items.
I've heard stories about the Repsol orange wheel paint not being very good, but really, the '04/'05 is generally a pretty good bike.
Poor maintenance and maltreatment are going to be much more important to how the bike is now than any inherent problems it might have had when it was new.
