Chris07 said:The last couple weeks I have been in the market to purchase a used V-rod. I have found a good lead on a 02 with 3800 miles. Is there any reason not purchase a first model year v-rod? What problem areas should I look for on this bike?
and "the man" has spoken :thumb:Max said:The trans update is probably the biggest difference in the early models and the late models as far as large changes go. The update trans do seem to shift better and the shift drum in the later bike was a big improvement in design. However my original 02 shift drum has 58k miles and still going strong so they weren't all bad.
I don't regret getting my 02 ever. Still the best model made.
