I do have the clear California title. I've mainly used the bike for commuting to work. I've only taken it on a few weekend rides and a 2-day trip to Big Bear. I've had it for roughly a year, and I am selling because I have a new Yamaha and can't keep both bikes.
I bought the bike from the second owner last summer. He did the maintenance himself, including the valve clearance check. He was quite capable of doing the work as he was a general contractor. He used Shell Rotella T synthetic oil. He also installed remove vacuum tubes to make throttle body synchronization easier.
I've done the maintenance since owning the bike including oil changes, chain adjustments, air filter replacement, and tire changes. I'm quite experienced as well since I've been doing all of my own maintenance for over 10 years. Upcoming maintenance due will include oil change in 1500 miles or so, spark plugs/valve clearance check/throttle body synchronization at 27,000 miles. Tires/chain/brake pads as needed.
There is nothing mechanically wrong with the bike, I really am just selling it because I got a 2012 Yamaha.
