Now, she is running better
Hi, all, Thank you for your help.
Got my vn750 at the end of 2009. Had a little problem starting, shifting was not as smooth as I would like. Sometimes had to really kind of kick the shifter very hard to a point I was afraid of breaking things.
Over the weekend. Replaced the battery with an ETX15L AGM battery. And I am glad I did it, because the old one was in bad shape without the over flow tube installed, rusted part of the battery box. Had to clean the place, and put a coat of paint before sat the new battery in there. Now at least I don't have to worry about the rusting there. While I was there, put a weather proof 12V outlet on the handle bar with an inline fuse box connected direct to the battery. So, I can charger my cell phone, and if needed, connect a battery tender there. No more taking the seat off for access to battery.
The old spark plugs were DENSO X2ZEP-U9. Replaced them with NGK DPR7EIX-9 (7803).
The result was: first time she started at the first crank. Took her for a spin with the wrench in my pocket, did some clutch adjustments. Had to stop several times to adjust the cable tension. Finally, solved the hard shifting problem. Now she is running better.
We have lots of nice people, and wonderful information here. Big Thanks to you all.
