    V4 1100 Factory 4 Reliability ???

    Okay, so I really want one but put off by horror stories of issues with these bikes. Hot starting issues, valves needing adjustment every 2 minutes and heads melting

    So what’s the general consensus ? Internet scare stories or are these things nails ?

    You search hard enough and you'll find horror stories for everything.

    Yeah that’s the danger, people generally only post up when they have an issue. I’m just trying to gauge owners views on long term ownership of these bikes

    16 reg factory from new 5000 miles only thing that has gone wrong is a broken mounting rubber for the throttle pot.
    Would I buy another? hell yeah! but I have one, so don't need too.

    Hi i have a 17 with 12000 miles when it was new some slow speed stalling when coming to a junction remapp sorted on 1st service , over temp light came on found right fan not working because the wire wasn't in the connection properly , my mate is on his 4 th v4 with no real issues , when we were away in the summer the other 2 guys on 17 had quick shifter problems turn out to be the switch now changed under warranty. One bike had done 9000 miles the other 5000
