Cool How much vibration its acceptable - potential 93 vn 750 owner question

Hi there, I'm looking at a 93 vn750 with 14k on the clock. The bike seems to run perfect, shifts thru all gears casually and at speed perfectly. Did some parking lot turns in first gear and very easy to handle, noticed its minutely easier to turn to the left but all in all it seems flawless.

The only thing I could be picky about is the vibration, couldn't see much in the mirrors around 30 mph. Noticed a slight, but old, oil wetness just below the rubber acordian boot where the shaft takes from the transmission.

I've done a bit of reading and the owner said he changed the oil at the wheel. He has had the engine out so I have a feeling the mounts may be tight causing the vibration in the mirrors and bars (however it didnt feel uncomfortable, nothing violent)

The bike starts with full choke and idles perfect without choke after its warm.

What should I check before pulling the trigger?

Thanks much-

I would think that most of the people on this sight would say that there should not be that much viration that you can not see much in the mirrors at thirty. You can ask the owner what was the engine out for and who did it. If the timing marks were not put together just right there can be a sugnificant vibration caused by the improper alienment. The balance dampeners could also be bad and are about to completely give way and then that is a bigger problem.
