The reason I ask is because I have read some things that indicate that it is hard on top ends due to excess heat generated. It doesn't even have an oil cooler so it does seem like heat could be a problem. I used to have an XR250 and my buddy had a 350 both with no oil coolers. I recall they used to get pretty hot, especially in the woods. Neither one ended up being reliable either, but I think both were thrashed by previous owners. This of course goes against the general consensus that Honda's are the most reliable thing on earth, so I figured I would ask the question. I'm looking at dual sport bikes so just asking the question in the event a 650L pops up. Thanks for any input or discussion.
