Have you owned one, Joe?
That'* just one Quad 4, perhaps you got lucky
I've never heard one rave about that motor, until now, being you, will
I tend to judge a motor'* reliability from the general consensus of many owners, not just one. My 3800'* had it'* share of problems, doesn't mean it'* the 3800 is an unreliable piece of crap
Example: upper intake failures on our motors, not everybody has 'em, but they're common enough to be an issue, and from what I've heard, Quad 4 head problems are pretty rampant.
