Long time reader, finally bought one
Hey everybody! I've been looking at this model bike for over a year, and cruising these forums to make myself familiar with the VN750's quirks. Finally took the plunge and bought a 2002 VN750 with only 7,800 miles! Moving up from a 150cc scooter, and I've only had the VN about two weeks but really like it. So far I've replaced the battery with a Yuasa, replaced the stock headlight with an LED, and changed the oil. It starts up immediately now that I installed a new battery and headlight, but I think I might get new spark plugs as well.
Hoping to change the coolant and final drive oil and check the splines in the next couple weeks, but I've barely had time to ride it since I got it. Thanksgiving will give me some time to tackle these more involved tasks.
This is my first bike so some of this maintenance is a little intimidating, all I had to do on the scooter was change the oil and occasionally flush the carbs. But so far I'm digging it, working on it when I can, and all the mods outlined in the Vulcan Verses will give me something to do over the winter. Anyway, just saying hey, and I'm sure I will be back here with questions later this week!
