Hi, that mileage should not be a problem as long as the bike has been well maintained. If it's any encouragement, my 93 model had 77,000 miles on it when I sold it. It was still running fine & was burning no oil. Timing chains were beginning to rattle a bit but that is to be expected at that mileage, may have even been the automatic cam chain tensioners starting to give up the ghost. Never got round to checking that out.
The best advice I can give you is to change the oil & filter every 3000 miles & ride gently when the bike is cold. Obey all the other service interval times in the handbook too. Also, at your earliest opportunity, take of the final drive unit & swingarm & check the splines both on the unit & the driveshaft. This area has proved to be a big problem on these bikes, they absolutely MUST be well lubricated here with moly grease or something similar. I am sorry to say that I learned the hard way with mine. Found the splines totally dry & almost totally stripped, had to fit a secondhand shaft & rear box.
Apart from that, they are good bikes, just need a little care & attention.
Hope you enjoy your new ride,
take care & ride safe.

Hi FumeTech. Welcome to our little forum. Where do you hail from?

WindRider is an '85 and I should (thanks to CRobins365) turn over 22,000 this week.
