I have a 2007 Cali classic and have had some issues. Fuel pump wiring had to be reterminated all the way to power source as kept cutting out. Initially thought it was a dud fuel pump, but mechamic at Eurocycles Adelaide said they should not cut in and out, they either work or don't.
ECU needed to be recalibrated after installing an aftermarket air meter (to overcome the lean factory settings for noise). After this work was done the bike is 100% reliable - usual Italian electrics.
I also changed out the foot brake for an after-market job that placed the pedal in front of the footboard so it was easily accessible. The original elevated position makes it cumbersome to use especially in an emergency.
Gearbox is a pain in the arse - finding 1st gear from stanstill is a hit and miss proposition, as it neutral. Very agricultural box, but mechanic says this will improve with use.
