DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT replace the belts every 20km. That's f-cking just begging for your engine to get ripped to shreds. These are kevlar reinforced rubber belts. In every case, they WILL stretch. - Especially with an SP. They should be checked and/or replaced at MOST every 6000mi or 2 years, whichever is sooner. PERIOD. End of story.

Jeezus don't scare me like that.

Otherwise, the SP is a great bike to have. Keep whatever you can that is original with her and if something isn't, try to find a premo-condition item that either is or is otherwise indifferent to an SP. It will only gain in value.

And don't crash her.
