thanks for the reply's!! what about valve clearance check heard its a nightmare on the CT. GS GSA easy. Are BMW that unreliable as far as breaking down?? Why did they stop making The CT?? Competition with the African Twin?

Regarding valve checks, well that goes without saying that there a lot easier on the GS cos “A” there’s only two cylinders and “B” they stick out either side  :164:
As far as GS reliability goes - well, best not go there.  :164:
Why did they stop making the CT - good question, best asking Honda.

so basically buy a CT that they don't make anymore or GS that has reliability issues or Yamaha S10. I would like  to stick shaft drive but opposed to chain. thanks again for the reply's.

If thay stop making CT is no problem! You gone  get new parts from honda next 20 years or more!
I have Blackbird 2005 and ordering any part i want from honda, thay stop making bike 2007!!
I talked with guys from Honda service hier in Croatia thay did not have any adjustment of valves inside 50000km! Yes check but no adjusments. For some riders that make 10000km a year it is every few years so no big deal!!! For me no probs, i have friend and we do it in my garage with koffie brakes and barbecue after😂!!
