Ready to buy but can't decide!
I got the green light from the wife on a vstrom but I can't decide on a wee or a vee. To me it comes down to reliability, I really think I'd like the power of a 1000 but this timing chain thing keeps popping up. I saw a good used one with around 30k but it said the timing chain was new, why would that engine need a new timing chain with that low of miles on it. I'm not looking for anything with that high of miles on it but it still makes me wonder. To me a bike engine should go at least 75,000 miles with just normal valve adjustments and maybe a clutch and water pump seal. To me if there's smoke there's fire on this chain thing.
