Default 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.

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