Hang in there, Fellow Vulcaneer....
It's usually darkest right b4 the dawn, as they say.
If your bike is one that has been thru at least 2-3 different owners, and has sat for a while, unloved and/or unused, it can easily develop problems...and subsequent owners end up paying the price for this neglect.
After you take the advice already given above, to save yourself even more headaches, later...be sure to:
a) Inspect the rear driveshaft splines, for proper lubrication. If they are dry, or underlubed, they can obviously wear off....leaving you on foot, and heaven only knows where...
...! Many threads here explain/discuss how to fix this (if you haven't already).
b) Relocated your bike's regulator/rectifier ("r/r" in most threads). This "upgrade" will help extend its service life.
c) If you haven't already, install a maintenance-free, AGM battery on your bike. Besides better starting performance, a sealed battery doesn't have to have fluids checked (read: seat removed) or added at least twice a month.
d) Especially if your bike is an older one, or one that has sat out in the elements, clean your bikes main electrical connectors (e.g., at the regulator/rectifier) with a good electronic contact cleaner that's also labelled as safe for plastics
! Then pack said connectors (and keep them packed) with dielectric grease
e) For much better peace of mind, especially while on longer rides, install "Ride On" tire sealant in your bike's tires (unless they are near their replacement). This sealant does an amazing
job of keeping a tire sealed and from going flat, due to things like a nail or drywall screw puncture. As a backup, keep a tire repair kit on board your bike (and know how to use this kit
, b4 you need it!).
f) Install a voltmeter (preferably one that's designed for motorcycle duty) to monitor your bike's charging system. This can later save you from being on foot--without warning....
g) Do a thread search for the "phantom gas syndrome"...and know what causes this.....and how to handle it.
h) Especially if you store your bike exposed to the elements at all, be sure to get a good
cover for it--and use the cover, religiously. Your baby is a great machine--but she will
rust, if not covered and polished properly. Of course, a rusty bike is an ugly bike. REAAA-LY
Much of the above is good practice in general, and not just on our bike. Your initial investment with this above "check list" will save you a lot of hassle and frustration later on, and keep you riding instead of unexpectedly wrenching. Again--many threads exist on this forum for most of the above--so you can be educated on the subject, if you're not already.
After you get the "kinks" out of your VN750, you will find that it is a fun machine, with quite a lot of info, support and camraderie from this forum as a huuuuuuuuuuge bonus! It is the last
bike of its kind--and thus is truly unique (not a Harley wanna-be) in the motorcycling world. Ride your VN750 with pride.....
