Unfortunately, the mechanical implementation is rubbish.

You know it's cold outside when you trip over dog shit instead of standing in it.

The Kips have too much free play.
axial and radial
the aluminium of the Kips is too soft and wears out too fast.
consequence: seal to the cylinder head is bad.
the kips links also wear out too quickly.

More beautiful it has been made for example in the KX500.
