Troubleshooting 02 VN750 issues
Hey all, stumbled onto this forum while searching for some info... I've recently become the official owner of my father's 2002 Vulcan 750, we both rode it for years but he moved last year and it has been dormant for a good while now.
Background on the issue: for years his bike always seemed to have trouble holding a charge and would have trouble starting, a few times I've even wound up stranded and needed a jump to get home.
So it has sat for a good while but was still turning over so I tried hooking the charger up and leaving it for a while, eventually cranked the charger up to "start engine" to see if I could start it... Seemed to be getting closer but then it lost all power completely and has been that way since. Checked the main fuse and it's fine, I really don't know too much else besides seeing others here replace the junction box, and people telling me it could be the stator... Thinking at this point it could be the old issue paired with the new one I caused and needs both...
I have a pretty good knowledge on automotive parts, particularly the body panels and structural parts but not as good with mechanical. I'm hoping to nail down a diagnosis and which parts need to be replaced, then I guess go from there.
Thanks to anyone that's able to help out!
