We have a 2000 Monster 900.
Seat was terrible 45 minutes max. now it has a Sargent seat, it is great.
Geared very high, had to slip clutch a lot in traffic, went one tooth smaller on motor sprocket two larger on rear. much nicer.
Power commander, slipons and opening up the air box jumped it from 75 hp to 90 hp at rear wheel.
Maintenance - Original battery died the first year (this is year 8 on the Odessey), needed tires at 7500 miles, brake pads at 12,000, valves still in spec at 12,000.
Great bike, as reliable as any Japanese bike.
