Do you still ride it ?Kaw 2000 is a belt drive, and it tends to make noise at that, common complaint but not a wear issue. Engine and tranny are bullet-proof - I have 34K on an 05 I bought new. It does eat tires - I get 6-8,000 miles on the rear. Front is okay, lasts around 12k-14k. Monoshock on rear does not like harsh bumps. Power is incredible. Haven't had anything go wrong since I bought it. Surprising agile in parking lot turns for a big bike, 200 mm rear tire helps I think. Extremely good mileage - get 50 mpg.
