Welcome aboard, I live in the North, just outside Belfast The VN certainly has a few quirky issues, but with the wealth of knowledge on this forum and from a lot of the members, you'll not be stuck for advice. Read the Verses, that'll give you an insight into VN750 ownership

Just got my first bike a few days ago. A 1995 VN750. It's so beautiful and runs great! Only thing is that it has an oil leak near the stator. There is a leak on the seal of the crankcase (where the two parts meet up) on the bottom. It isn't too bad, but I didn't notice it when I purchased my bike, and I figured out it was a $800 fix in the shop, because you have to remove the motor to replace the gasket. So make sure you check for oil leaks on the bottom of the bike too! Get down on the ground and actually look under it! haha. I'm sure this was one of the more common issues, as it was stator related. I guess a previous owner replaced the stator on the bike and just didn't quite get the gasket right. I don't know much about bikes, so this is the only thing I can suggest! Take a friend with you to help too!!

Zoom nyoom!

You'll probably be interested in reading Used VN750 Bike Check from the Vulcan Verses.

And while you are in the Vulcan Verses, read any other topics that'll help you know the bike better.

Don't take my word for it. I'm just a foolish newbie.
When in doubt, just know that I am only joking around.
