Hey guys I just bought my first bike a 86 vn750 I love the bike but my question is what all can I do to the bike for pm?
So far I changed oil ,Ngk plugs,cleaned air filters, changed rear diff fluid, I guess my question is there any grease fittings I didn't see? Anything else you guys recommend I appreciate

hello and welcome to the madness!

check/read the "The Vulcan Verses"; https://www.vn750.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=36

I would say check and lube the rear shaft splines. but like I said before, check/read the the Vulcan Verses. also, I'm sure others will chime in and let you know what they think.

if it goes vroom or boom, I LIKE IT!

Lube the splines, check the coolant, make sure your tires aren't too old, make sure your brake pads are good. Make sure your battery is good and many recommend going to an agm battery, myself included.
