I'm new here, I am the owner of a VN 750 year '99. I bought it 7 months ago when it had 27 000 miles.
It is my first bike and I'm really not good at fixing things, not to mention that i have no clue whatsoever about mechanics. All I have it is just a bit of common sense and with your help i think I can get through with this
So, here is the history of my problem: two weeks ago when I turned the key in the ignition switch to start there was no current at all. i knew the battery was good, so I tried to find a broken wire or something, but I discovered that when i changed the position of the bike the current came on and after that I didn't have any problem untill 2 days ago when while driving the engine cut off momentarilly, sometimes I have to restart the bike in the middle of the road . I also noticed that all the lights (in board and headlight) would go off at the same time with the engine, so that's why i suspect it is electrical. Another symptom is sometimes when it's interrupting, the tach bounces really widely even though you can hear the rpm is not changing that much.
I thought it is the side stand switch, I bypassed it this morning but the problem remains.
I also played with the handlebar right left with the engine not running but with the key in the contact, and sometimes all the lights flicker so the problem is in the fork area.
Anyone has any suggestion how to track this efficiently 'cause otherwise I'm afraid i have to check all the wires....
Thank you all!!!
