Re: How do VN750s hold up in the rain?
The one small problem I have had after riding in heavy rain has been with the levers, mainly the clutch lever. They seem to get dirty afterwards and do not operate as expected.
Usual symptoms.. I will only start the bike in neutral with no clutch. It won't start in gear with the clutch engaged. On at least one other occasion my rear brake lights weren't coming on when the brake lever was used.
Solution? An easy one, I sprayed the "joint" of the levers with contact cleaner and everything was back to normal. Just spray into the connection point and work it back and forth a few times.
Another thing.. Lots of the ones that use Metzler tires have reported improved handling in the rain
