Hi everyone. Ive been digging through the forums here for awhile trying to find a solution to my problem. Haven't found a solution yet so I figured I would ask.
I bought a second hand vn 750 recently and after a short while it has become almost impossible to start.
When I press the ignition switch it starts to turn over but won't start. I can only do this a few times before the battery dies and requires recharging (I have tried two different batteries with the same result). Occasionally when trying to start the bike backfires (sounds like a 12 gauge going off). Once it backfires it usually starts first try afterwards. There's no way that's healthy for the engine though.
I'd be grateful for any help on this issue.
