Many moons ago (1987 I think) I briefly owned a lovely, orange, 180 crank Jota. Big, top heavy, steered like an oil tanker in that it was very stable at speed but needed a lot of 'input' to get it to change direction. Getting it to run on all 3 cylinders on a cold, foggy, morning could take some patience and the neighbours were definitely aware of what was going on.A beautiful, fun bike to ride but I don't think I was ever totally its master and it retained the tendency to bite back occasionally just to remind me who was in charge, it's element was long, sweeping, bends where, once set up, it tracked like it was on rails. Took it to the IOM and it was hard work around the mountain course trying to keep up with my mates who were on GSXR750's and similar.Only had the bike for about 12 months, so can't comment on detailed servicing requirements, and swapped it for a GSX1100 Katana as the pillion accommodation was better (of some importance in those days).I'm sure you are aware there are two incarnations, the 120 crank on later bikes makes the whole thing far smoother.
