Hello out there. Trying not to be a lurker. I bought the Vulcan for $100. It hasn't run for a year. The guy who owned it didn't know how to fix it. Charged up the battery. It turns over and there is Spark. Smells like it is getting fuel. So I will be taking it to a repair shop. Fairly certain it has something to do with the timing and that's not my area of expertise. I'd rather pay somebody to fix it right. But at any rate, thank you all for your posts for us noobs to learn from. I have been a Harley owner in the past but but can't stand the markup and the need for constant repairs and I really like the looks of this bike. The only mod I will make is add the vn 900 seat. Looking forward to when I can ride it. Regarding the 900-seat, I have seen on eBay that they sell quick releases. In the threads that I have read on modding this to fit the 750, looks like everyone does the bolt down. Is there a thread out there where they have modified the quick release for the 750? Thanks again for all of your posts.
