New rider, considering a VN750
Hey everybody, I'm from Atlanta and I found a VN750 that I think looks really sharp and I might pick it up this week. I'm mostly wondering what's considered high mileage for buying used... I currently ride a 150 scooter, looking to move up to a motorcycle, and I found a 2003 VN750 with about 24k miles on it. It's being sold by a dealership so it at least looks really clean. I've been reading about common problems with this model though (spline lubrication, stator) and I'm wondering if 24k is too high for a new rider like me who doesn't want to spend a bunch of time pulling the bile apart to replace a stator. On the flip side, I sorta feel like if this bile was a lemon it wouldn't have lasted to 24k. If the spline weren't being cared for they would've gone out by now right? What do you guys think? I'm new, I'm okay at working on cars but I'm not amazing at it (changed my struts before, etc), do you guys think this bike is a good idea for a first bike? Price is 1300 btw, and the dealership said they don't have any sort of maintenance records.
I've lurked this forum enough to know Vulcans can last up to 100k with proper maintenance, I guess I'm just wondering if 24k is a high enough number that I should be worried about having to pull the engine to replace a stator, etc. I think it's been at the dealership for about 2 years as of right now.
