New guy here

I just got a 97 Vulcan 750, and found this site. The bike isn't in that great of shape but runs. My first question is about the exhaust. Someone has rigged up a dual exhaust to one side instead of both. Does this bike need a place where the exhaust comes together like the factory?

Welcome to the forum Dodgeman2009.

Have a look through the equipment section of the forum for your exhaust question and check out the gallery for pictures of various Vulcans.

It's possible that you saw either a Cobra or Jardine after-market exhaust system. Take a look at this thread: https://www.vn750.com/forum/showthrea...t=15233&page=2

Well I would like to say welcome to the board. This is the best site to be found for the VN750 as there is a lot of information to be found on here, and if you can't find the information post your question in the right section and members will help you out.

Tell us a little bit about your bike. How many miles are on it? Is it the American version, Canadian model, California Model, etc. Has there been any modifications done to it? Is the r/r relocated? Do you have any pictures of it?

Welcome to the Vulcan madness.

Don`t wait too long to check the rear splines for lube.

The factory exhaust system does have a crossover or "Power Chamber" as Kawasaki calls it. We usually refer to it as the *goats belly*.
It has often been discarded when aftermarket or custom systems are installed.
