Loved mine. Piston broke at 850 miles, other than that, no mechanical problems in 4000 miles, that weren't my fault, knew I shoulda put drive bearings in it, but didn't
until it was too late.
My biggest dislikes are the tank contour, uncomfortable if you ride real agressive,
and the seat foam feels real hard. You may be able to get an upholstering shop to bore some holes in the foam to soften it up a bit. I don't know if they changed it for
the 01's or not, but I believe they did reshape the gas tank a little.
