Nikon Refurb...usually OK?

Nikon has a 200-500 refurbished lens right now, and since I'm contemplating this lens, I'm wondering if the refurbs are a generally safe buy?   Or for such an expensive lens is it risky to only have 3 months of warranty on it. A new lens has a year and then an additional 4 years if you register on their website, so I guess a refurb loses all that.

It's a good savings, but I wonder where they got it to offer it as a refurb, whether it was faulty and repaired, or just a buyer's remorse type of thing where a lens was bought and quickly returned.  I've never bought used or refurbished before.
