That's true. You can check the amp draw on the starter, and see what it is. I don't know what it is supposed to be, but it should be in the manual. I personally believe the Vulcan 750 has bot a too small battery, and a too weak starter to begin with. Both my Vulcan 750s have turned over noticeably slower than most of my other bikes, even when new. But, they are also the only v-twins I have ever owned until getting a Harley Road King. It too turns over fairly slow. Could be just a v-twin thing. My recent 500 Ninja would turn over really fast, as does my 250 Rebel and 1200 Goldwing. I can't help but think that the Vulcan 750s slow cranking speed has something to do with it sometimes being hard to start. It may not be turning over fast enough to have a good spark.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
