    Not trying to be funny but that quote says nothing about anything related to the all wheel drive system. Looks like a clutch replacement. I would probably look at a second opinion.

    It will probably outlast all of us. Not the most exciting bike, but hard to beat as a short distance commuter and run about.

    Not too many of them around used, difficult to comment on the pricing.
