vaquero opinions

My son has a yamaha raider xv1900,he is wanting to upgrade and is looking at a 2011 vaquero.
I'm wondering how well liked they are
Common problems they have and what to look out for on these bikes.

First. Not an upgrade from the Raider. Totally different ride.

The Vaquero is basically a stripped down cooler brother to the Voyager.

Drivebelt noise from misalignment or too much tension

A few squeeks and rattles in the bodywork that have to be isolated and fixed.

2010 Vulcan Voyager 1700 ABS, 2007 Vulcan Mean Streak 1600
2012 Concours 1400, 2011 Versys 650, 2012 KLX250S

see my garage for list of accessories
