Ok so about a month ago I picked up a 2001 Vulcan 750 that sat for 3 years with less then a 1/4 tank of gas in the tank (so you know there was gas in the Carbs.
Anyways long story I was going to sell the bike either as it sits or fixed...
So I posted it on craigslist and I got a email for Crobins365 about the site and I could get help with my carb issue here.
So after a few post on here and talking with Crobins365 I knew I wouldn't have the time or patience to fix the issue as this is my busy time of the year for work and I have 3 kids. (and after looking at them carbs there was no way the bike would have been in one piece when I finished :::coughs::: Hammer would have been part of the bike when I was finished)
So as Crobins lives about a hour away I made a offer for her to do the carbs and come and install them when she was finished.
Well we agreed and off in the mountains I went to drop them off, about 1 week later and compete pictures as her progress was being done, she was at my back door with some sparkling Clean Carbs.
with in about 1 1/2 hours my bike was running again....but then we was stumped on a idle issue/Rev Restriction issue, but I don't quit or give up and corbins was done her job.So I kept going over the bike and talking to crobins on the phone trying to trouble shoot the problem.
I finally got the problem fixed (it was the Carb Vent hose).
So I need a few parts (a Turn signal and front brake lever) and Crobins said she had and both and gave me a GREAT price for them and mailed them out yesterday. WELL I GOT THEM TODAY AND THE BIKE IS NOW BACK TOGETHER 100%
So I went over to my storage (this is where OUR Vn750.com secret comes in) so SHHHH..... and took the tag off my CBR 900RR because I was dying to get this thing out on the HWY. put it on the 750 and off for a "Little ride" I went.
Well 200 miles later I arrived back home with a big smile on my face wanting more.
Anyways the whole point of this post is to say CROBINS365 thank you so much for all your time and help.
And to thank each and everyone of you for super fast responses with your trouble shooting suggestions.
This forum is one of kind and full of friendliness,great advise,answers and very well mannered and managed.
