Too little play brought the vibration back; too much, and the result was “very poor” handling. The first production machines completed in April had frame failure problems, which were resolved with the introduction of an improved frame in January The side-stand tended to break off, particularly if the owner insisted on starting the machine on the side-stand, leaving a hole in the frame beneath the engine, while the center-stand was too short to provide good support for the motorcycle, dragged on the pavement, and tended to break in half both later improved.
