Hello

I recently purchased a 91 VN750 with only 3500 miles. It sat in a sealed garage, properly prepared for storage, since about 92. I checked all fluids, changed the battery, put some gas, and it fired right up on the first crank! The only thing I had to do was purge and clean the brake line due to the old fluid turning into jelly.

I've put about 200 miles on it since without a single hiccup.

I absolutely love this bike. In the past I've owned a couple street bikes, a large Harley, and a dirt bike, and this is shaping up to be almost the perfect bike for my purposes. A perfect complement to my KLR.

I've browsed this forum a bit and decided to finally join the community.

With all that said, are there any major maintenance items I should keep an eye out for?

Also, what are your favorite sources for parts/customization items?

Garage
Welcome to the group.
First Maintenance Item would be tires if they are original. And I hope you changed the oil. If you were reading up then I hope you installed an AGM Battery too. Good luck.

Check the splines for sure as that is a serious issue for some of these machines. As for a source for custom items all you need to do is look in the mirror as there are very few items out there that will just bolt on. If you have something particular in mind then look here under the related forum heading and you can find some information. Most anything can be modified within reason if you have the right tool and skills. good luck.
