Welcome. As has been said, the drive splines are critical, I would not ride the bike until you check/lube those. The VN750's other main weak point seems to be the cam chain tensioners, which I believe to be a design problem. It can be solved by replacing the automatic tensioners with manual ones. Other than those two things, the Vulcan 750 is pretty much like any other bike, only the engine is a lot more mechanically complicated, with way more parts than most cruiser engines. Many repairs easily done on other bikes require the engine to be removed on the Vulcan.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
