It's been a long time

I haven't been on the forum since God was a little boy. I no longer own a VN 750 but I need some info. When I owned my 750 I complained of lurching on cold engine start ups. The fault as we all know is the cluch and the fact that it's a wet clutch. There was/is a member that operated a transmission repair facility that had and sold clutch discs that illiminated the lurching and the "coffee grinder" noise. I installed a set of those discs and the difference was like night and day. I'm a stickler for keeping names and addresses but I can't find that member's name. Does any of the older members remember who he is? I sure would like to see if he has discs for my 2009 V Star 950. Thanks

Mike

Wow. I only recall drilling the clutch basket to eliminate the "coffee grinder" sound from the cold clutch. Sorry Mike, I can`t help you.

Same here. I believe Kawasaki even sent it out as a memo to their dealerships 'back in the day'.

I do remember purchasing a light bar from you Knifemaker, I think it was from you.
Yes the discs were a reddish color but I just can't remember the man's name or outfit that he worked for or owned.

The red plates you're looking for are probably Alto Reds. I use them in my Harley and have a set to install in my wife's VN750. http://www.altousa.com/am/motorcycle
