Cranking problems

Hi from boynton beach fla! Got a 99 vn750 awhile back. First bike in 20 years. Well anyway did the ear shave and had it running pretty good. Put new plugs in and it would crank over once or twice pull the plugs out and it turns over. Any ideas why?? Thanks

How old is your Battery? What Type? These bikes are very sensitive to cranking voltage so a moderately weak battery just wont do it

X2 that's why I keep advising everyone to do the coil relay mod. This will send 12 volts directly to the coils from the battery. I never have a starting problem. Your bike will love you for doing this mod. It's not that hard. All bikes want 12 volts at the coils. Any of the vintage bike forums stress doing this mod.Trust me it will make a big difference.
