First ride!

I'm super stoked. First ride was nice and easy, only up to second gear, but so much better than the same ride I took with a rebel last year. The rebel was so light it got squirrelly with every movement, the Vulcan is so much smoother.

I need to adjust the clutch, first drags when the lever is pulled tight. And the PO installed LED signals all the way around but left the stock flasher so they don't flash. Not a big deal, I have an electronic flasher around here someplace.

Glad to hear it's all going good. Have you taken care of the reed valves yet? I'll still keep my word on those coasters. You won them, fair and square lol.

Not yet. An ear shave and emissions delete is definitely on the list though so I appreciate the contest. Lol. It's just a tad tall getting off, so either a mean streak seat and or shorter shocks is a higher priority.

try letting some air out of the rear shocks twist them to #1 and let air out you can get about a half inch lower by doing this after twist them to #3 and you should be good to go
