94 VN750 potential purchase help

Hi everyone. I'm going to be taking a look at a 94 Vulcan 750 tomorrow and was wondering if there's anything specific I should be looking for? It has about 33,000 miles on it. It looks very clean from the pics but I haven't seen it in person or heard it running. I can tell from the pics it has aftermarket exhaust. Any help would be appreciated!

Obviously check for leaks. Ask about routine maintenance, if the splines were ever lubed. Ask if he rejetted the carbs for the xhaust or not. Maybe if he's ever had to tighten up the cam chain tensioners

Take a volt meter and pull the seat. Check voltage at the battery while running @ 3000 rpm and make sure it's over 14v. Take a spin and make sure it goes through the gears OK.

X2 check the voltage people have been known to sell these bikes with bad stators so you want to make sure the stator is charging the battery.
