Yeah she'll be right. Budget for a future rebuild though.

After that many K's the bearings are probably gone, and the teeth are probably worn at the very least slightly.. But it should run fine until it gets overly noisy or chews a few teeth out..

It'll be easy enough to get another gear cluster and some bearings to rebuild it, or get someon else to rebuild it.

But as was said, budget for a rebuild down the track, maybe barter the price down if you feel it is excessive for the number of K's it has travelled..

I hope this helps
