Does 98 1500a bubf have POG

Does anyone know for sure if the 1998 1500a has a plastic oil gear?

Just found that all 1500 vulcans from 87-99 had the pog except the drifter but that the bubf had a very low failure rate compared to the classic and nomad. Do any 1500a bubf owners here have any issues w the pog?

My oil light has come on a couple of times when I had to rip through the gears down shifting and coming to a fast stop. Other than that I have no problems on my 95 88.

1995 Vulcan 88 with air box delete kit, K&N filters, Cobra exhaust with no baffles, Corbin Gunfighter seat, after market mirrors and clutch and break master cylinder covers, fake air cleaner cover on side, tombstone taillight, led lights for taillight blinkers and headlight. Still adding parts.
1996 Vulcan 88 all stock except custom paint.
1996 Vulcan 800 custom. Custom paint, Vance&Hines pipes, after market mirrors and grips, Corbin seat, K&N filter.
2002 V-Star 650 all stock.

That is just the momentary slosh of the oil away from the oil pickup that occurs on wet sump engines sometimes...
