Nice sounding & Clean looking 750....low mileage...seems excellent in the video.

Nice Seat, what is that seat ?

New rear tire ?

I need to replace my rear tire once a year.... I blame it on AZ. 's rough asphalt.

Rough asphalt and the heat. Where in NE are you?

William the rear tire is a Pirelli route MT66 size 150/90/15. Not sure if it's original it was on the bike when I got it. The seat is a Mustang, the part number is 4-vn73r/75359. Fool, I live in Connecticut. Really hoping to work soon, I can't wait to take the course, get my license, and get this thing on the road. Really looking forward to it. I have new bars going on it soon, as a present I got Biltwell Keystones and nice grips. A good friend of mine is going to help me install them because I don't know how lol. I love the way it runs, it seems to have a slight fluctuation in idle though. When i put the bike on the side stand it idles lower and when I stand it up it idles higher then goes back down a bit and when I give it some throttle like I did in the video it stays a little high for a minute then it goes back down. I wouldn't imagine it's a big deal though.

Just a thought...
Read the DOT date on BOTH your tires...know what you are riding on.
Tires pushing 7 y/o are considered risky.
Many threads with a link to Online instruction on how to read/interpret DOT Date Codes.
Tho, I would think Rear tire is not the original.

Your 99

That is a nice looking bike. It has been debadged and I like the Mustang seat. I have a 99 that is debadged also. I replaced the side covers with chrome ones from the early 90's and have a Corbin seat. If it hasn't been ridden much the last few years, run a couple strong doses of Sea Foam through it. That will clean up the carburetors.

Thank you! Yeah it wasn't run for a few years before I got my hands on it. The person that had it before me had it stored under a motorcycle cover outside for a few years untouched, the gas that was in it was like turpentine. The carbs were terrible, I did a computer job for a friend of mine and he took the carbs out and cleaned them up good for me. The oil was also very sludgy as well, I changed the oil with Valvoline 10-40 four stroke motorcycle oil. It looked pretty sad to, I uploaded before and after pictures on my VN750 forum page. The badges had to go, not only do I like the flush look but they were in sad shape anyway. How much sea-foam should I use? I also have Stabil in the gas as well is it ok to add seafoam to that? The chrome covers sound nice!

Sea Foam

All I use is the Sea Foam. I use it to over winter the bike. We have had a really bad winter here in the Midwest. I guess out east you had a bad winter also. This week end I am going to get my bike out. We haven't had any riding weather yet. I guess there have been a few bikes out on some half way decent days. I saw a Harley out and it was in the low teens. This week end looks like it might be OK. Not great but tolerable. Have a great summer
