I have not long bought one and want to know what the inherent problems are with these machines.
Mine has 55k on it and run well, has not been flogged, serviced regularly.
Anything I should look out for?

Welcome.
About the only "inherent problem" I can remember is the shaft drive going dry and failing.......but not sure what models that applies to.
Otherwise, you are due for new tires NOW unless they have been replaced already.
And maybe a battery if it is original.
Also brake service (fresh fluid) if that wasn't done.

Thanks, I will keep an eye on oil levels. I'm able to maintain the bike pretty well myself, just need to know if there are any particular issues or traits peculiar to theses machines.

Like Ken said about the dirve shaft the seal can let water in and it ends up rusting and stripping. Keep it greased and you should be fine.
