I am learning about the VL800 prior to putting the money down to buy one.

Looking for any repeater issues and known fixes, in other words ......

Thanks,

Oldfeller

Best thing I've bought in a long time - buy it - you'll not regret it.

wwweee  to the group. I would recommend the VL800, or C50 as it is in the states as a good compromise anytime!

I have an '01 model - great bike.  Nice & simple, carbed so you're not going to be tempted to piss around with the FI.  Have a good look round the underside of the frame, the paint will have taken some battering & be rusty, but it's just a case of rubbing off the rust, giving it a coat of Curust & finishing with Hamerite to stop the spread.  Usual stuff - try & find one that has some service history.   Certainly worth dropping the shaft out & making sure that it's greased up as they can run dry which is not good for them

If you any queries before you buy, there's plenty of knowledge on the forum
