I agree and perceive the 10 year warranty as a positive (and a convincing marketing tool when comparing competitive offerings.) This is especially relevant as I don't see a disproportionate number of service related complaints.

I'm also taking into account that Palarran's problem might have been easily resolved had access to a factory service been available. I'm still on the fence, but assuming I can confirm access to factory service in the BVIs, I don't think this will disqualify the E-TEK, especially as I'm not convinced the Suzuki CDI ignition and battery-less EFI make it any more serviceable by non-factory mechanics.
