Noob from VA, USA

Yo, folks,

Just picked up a '95 Vulcan 750 and loving it so far! I haven't been riding too long (6 months maybe?) but wish I found riding 20 years ago. I'm pretty handy with my hands, so undertaking the mods people post about shouldn't be too bad. The Tuxedo mod has me a bit nervous, but hopefully replacing the R/R with an SH847 might keep me from having to do it anyway.

Speaking of mods, these are the ones I'm looking at doing (in no particular order):

2-wire mod
blue wire mod
ear shave
upgrade R/R
reserve light unit bypass
LED lights (not headlight yet, but the cheaper lights like turn signals)

Got my hands on an SH847 R/R! It's BIG! I'll probably have to improvise a bracket to put it where the old one was, unless I want to copy other people and put it by the rear tire. I got rid of the goat, so it shouldn't get baked sitting under the battery. Any other advice where I should shove the R/R?

Does Richmond still smell like tobacco snuff?

It pretty much always does near Altria/Philip Morris. The rest of the city smells like a porta crapper.

Welcome to the machine! ... from the other side of the mountain.

See my post #10 here ... https://www.vn750.com/forum/19-elect...g-battery.html

My r/r is under the left sidecover. Let me know if you have questions or need tips.

Is cruising still illegal in Richmond? I've done some work in the shipyards over that way, the company had an office in Richmond. They're gone now.
