ok so I have a question, I have read many of the posts in here all describing Duc gremlins. Can any of you tell me of any gremlins that plague the Monster line?

Don't BRAKE till you see the whites of their eyes, oh yeah remind me which is the brake lever again

I can't think of anything specific to the Monster line, but there are a few things to look out for in general. Prior to '99 all the Ducs had a rather weak charging system, and you've probably heard about the brake slave cylinder re-call on the '01 bikes. Some guys have reported oil leaks at the crankcase seams on some of the '01 models but that should be a warranty fix. Unless you get the S4, flaking rockers should never be a concern. Come to think of it, I haven't heard of any rocker problems from S4 owners either, but it may be too early to tell. Overall, they're pretty solid.
