I hope I'm welcome back in the vn750 life style.:)

Hi everyone. I haven't been on in some time. Life gets in the way...divorce, job changing, etc.

I've had my 91 since 93. It's been stored inside forever. It hasn't run in 5-6 ish years. Right now, it's apart as I had the carbs off to clean and repair. I was also installing hardiness forward controls. Neither were complete when I abandoned the bike for a few years.
It's now home, and while filthy and not all in one peice, it's in good shape.

I would love to get it running again and take it out every now and then when I want to time travel.

Here's what I need help with so far.

1) I don't remember how to reinstall the carbs. My manual got lost in the move. Actually is there a way to confirm I put it all back together properly?
2) on the carb, one of the fuel inlets broke. What does everyone else do to fix these?
3) the forward controls are tough to install. Any advise?
4) I think I lost some clutch cable mounts. Anyone have a picture of how it should look?


Thanks in advance! I'm going to be here a lot.

Chris

I had to replace broken fuel inlets. I bought some Harley D. brass ones, drilled out the old ones slightly undersize and pressed the new ones in with loctite. All good now. Welcome back.

One can never have too many alternative forms of transport.

It's way way easier to take out the carbs when the bike is upside down like that.

^ Ohhhhh, I get it. I still wanna know how he did it though. That'd be a helluva good marketing ploy for JB Weld...

Welcome back dude. Right on, or should that be Ride On with the '91 vn.
(Don't tell these other guys but the '91s have the fastest colors! lol)

Go to the fuel and carbs forum and look through the first threads that are "stickied" to stay at the top of the list. There are several you may find helpful in confirming your carb is put back together properly. ie. Crobins pics in her gallery and roach's videos.

Here is a link to a better brass fuel fitting:

Sorry I can't help with info on forward controls or clutch cable mounts.
