I'm sure something like this has popped up before, but I've been searching through old posts and FAQ's and haven't found anything, so I apologize for any redundancy.
I am looking for a late '70s early '80s bike along the lines of a Yamaha XS, Honda CB, and Kawi KZ. I want something in the 650cc+ range. It's going to be the first bike I own myself, although I'm not entirely new to motorcycling.
I found a local KZ 750 LTD, 4 cylinder (1980). The bike has great mileage and seems to have been maintained regularly.
My concerns are about it being a 4 cylinder. Are these bikes with the 4 cylinder motors more difficult to maintain and/or more prone to issues than a twin or triple? My logic was more carbs, more parts...more problems. But I wanted to get some experienced input.
The bike seems to be a good find, but I don't want to wind up in over my head. I have some mechanical knowledge and maintain all of my cars, but it seems scary to think about working on a 4 cylinder bike when compared to a simple twin.
Any and all input is greatly appreciated!
