I just got a 05 f-7 this year w 8k on it, yes it needed a little work but not much for the miles. I would look at the oil line behind the primary, look at the coolant hoses especially under the eng, both are chafe spots. Pull the belt and give the clutches a qk look, grab the secondary movable sheave ( the inside one ) and make sure its tight on the hub/collar where it slides a little slop can be fixed with a bushing but mine was wiped and had to spring for a whole secondary at $360.
flip it on its side and give the skid and idlers a qk once over, and just look at anything that you can forsee having to replace i.e. brake pads track belt ect.
I will say for 8k mine is still really tight and i'm very impressed with the f-cat. Ifyou like to sit and steer go for a conventional sled like a zr chassis, but if you like to get into it and move around the f-cat is a blast to ride and sucks up the bumps like no other!!! my2cents :beer_cheers: :catwins :sledder:
