Just after delivery, we did, however, have our concerns. A staffer started commuting on the Enfield in preparation for using it at the Quail Motorcycle Gathering last May in Monterey (Roundup, CW, September), and there were some ominous oil drips. But the leak just stopped. I suspect the sump was overfilled, because after it had burped out the breather a bit, the Enfield seemed to have found its level and all was good. It didn't leak another drop. That would never happen on my Velo. Then, later, we heard from Enfield importer Classic Motorworks (www.enfieldmotorcycles.com) that some early production units of the G5 were recalled for a gearbox issue, wherein the third-gear bush galls to the shaft and stops turning. This is serious business, so Enfield addressed it by recalling G5s to replace the faulty shaft and bushing. We never had a problem with our testbike, and Enfield wasn't sure it was even one of the affected machines, but one likes to be sure of these things. And if you think the big manufacturers don't have troubles like this, check out "Recall Roster" in Service every month.
