Hey guys, After months of procrastination I've decided to go for my license which I'll be doing at HART this wednesday, and buy my first bike so am looking for a bit of information regarding RVF's. I've looked at other bikes, CB400's, SV650's, CB250's CBR250RR's etc but keep coming back to the RVF after hearing great things and reading peoples experiences with them. I've been keeping an eye out on bikesales over the past couple of months and have also stopped into Peter Stevens FTG to see one they have there and had a sit on a couple at Internation Motorcycle Importers in Fentree Gully and am quite comfortable on them (6' 1") and love the looks and feel sitting on it. The other day I came across this one and decided to go have a look see. http://www.bikesales.com.au/all-bik...1432 604 1428 4294967259 4294966622&silo=1400 Went and had a look at it the other day. The owner (an older bloke) said he has never had problems with it, uses it for occasional rides (not commuting) and that he loves the bike however the riding position doesn't agree with back anymore. However I did notice that the exhaust was putting out a fair bit of oil as I held my hand over it. I'm just wondering if this would be worn piston rings that would be causing this. If not, what does cause it? If it is piston rings how would I go about fixing them in terms of part availability and cost? Also if any RVF owners could give me some insight into their experiences with their bikes and some common problems they've run into that'd be great also. Cheers, Nick.
