I wouldn't buy a motor with a known oil pressure issue. No way to tell how much if any lubrication related damage has been done. Also, anybody who knows something about the Vulcan 750 knows the stock cam chain tensioners are prone to failure, and can cause considerable engine damage. The complexity and the known problems with the 750 motor is why I have decided not to ever look for another motor for mine if/when mine fails. It's been a good bike (both of them) and I hope to pass 200,000 miles on Vulcan 750s before my '02 blows up.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
