Looking at buying a 99 powder special has 3500 miles on it,its for the wife, just wondering what issues these start having at these miles. Any help would be appreciated. I did try the search but computers and myself dont seem to work that well together.

With that milage on it I would recommend considering changing out the pistons and rings if it has not already been done. They do have a record of breaking off the skirts.

If it has'nt been changed yet you will need a new clutch and new drive axle bearings.

There was a recall on the cylinders and pistons for those affected.
We still have a 99 powder special as a spare sled... Has at least 4000 miles on it, and has been a very good sled. Only issue was a dead stator last year "intermitant"... Other than that, the only downfall is the boxed tunnel... But for a wifes sled, no biggie. Sled has never been re-built and runs strong.
Around that year they had some spider issues, but with that many miles it probably has a different clutch, or a good one... If they were going to break, they usually did it with very few miles.
