So after reading some around I think Im getting the gist of it.

Seems like beyond obvious abuse cases the most common issues are:

- 04 frame cracking/recall
- Oil leaks and coolant leaks from the engine block (some worst than others)
- Stator coil “exploding” (i’m guessing the same denso magnet issue?)

Am I missing a lot? What would you guys add to the list to watch for about a used G1?

Also I read that the gearbox is a bit sensitive especially and the gears wear out more than normal? Is that true?
If i remember correctly this model had some sort of a slipper clutch? Is that true? And does it work well?
