I've been seeing a 2002 Concours for sale that is a little tempting. What are the design deficiencies or typical problems of that vintage?

Do a Google search for COG (Concours Owners Group) should bring up two Concours web sites. Lots of information on them..I have a 2003 and so far no issues great bike for my needs.

Might have trouble with the carbs and/or petcock if it hasn't had frequent use, but that can be said of most any bike with those parts.
Another problem can be not wanting to get off of it until you put four or five hundred miles on the odometer.:wink:
