Hey All

Hi guys,

I am a new member to the website, although I have used it for references when working on my 1995 Vulcan 750 already. I am from Lincoln, NE, and have owned this bike for around 4 months now. I have owned one other bike before this, a 1981 Yamaha XJ650. I am slowly working up the chain for size, and getting a lot of experience along the way. Last bike had carb troubles, which I got to a decent working order, but wasn't perfect, so I found someone else to take over that job and got myself my 750. I was unaware of the faulty stator on it when I bought it, and was snooping around this website for lots of solutions. I eventually came to the cutting frame method (in which I took pictures and plan to put my process on to help give back). It turned out well, and charges like it should now. Also relocated the RnR and added a voltmeter.

I look forward to being part of the VN750 community!

Welcome. I'm new also, though I've been lurking for a year or more. I bought my first bike, an 86 VN750, a couple of weeks ago. And I've been nagging these fine fellows ever since. It's a great site, with great information.

I've found that basically my first step with any question is to go to Google and type vn750 and whatever keywords describe my question. The first link or two is pretty much always the thread on this forum that answers the question.

I didn't know the bike had been assembled in Lincoln Nebraska. Cool that you're from there. I just read a bit about it, and I didn't know that had to do with the Reagan tariff. Most people who know the history of the VN750 know that the 85 model was only 699cc, because of the tariff on larger bikes that was put in place to help Harley (never mind that tariffs and HD are back in the news this week). But I thought that the reason the 86 model had 749cc (the first "750") was because the tariff had been lifted. But actually it was because Japan did then what Harley announced this week. They started assembling the VN750 in the US, specifically to get around the tariff. And I guess they just decided to keep it there when the tariff was lifted, a year or two later.

I'm glad you showed up. I don't know how long it would have taken me to learn that detail, or that the bikes were always assembled in the US.
