Ok,. Y'all ,
I'm, a new very happy to be a member of this forums very informative and constructive group of members,. Ok I am from New Orleans, and currently living in Shreveport, Louisiana. I have about 2.5 yrs exp on bikes had a Yamaha r6
7 yrs ago for 1st bike now after some time finally got me a cruiser.
Bought the 95 vn750 about a month ago 14,000 miles on odometer I really didn't care what it stated being that I don't know but seems it be easy to manipulate miles on a motorcycle odm,. It started on cold start and was calling me. It picked me not the other way around ya know..
Anyways I love it,,..!!! And thanks to you guys and this site I have had tremendous help in all categories.. Figured I'd stop evesdroppin and sign in and let y'all know thank you for the pass month of help you all unknowingly supported in.. lol
I'm an electrician and going back to school now for Industrial Automation and Controls, so of course I have done the 2 wire mods bypass starter safety features, and turning lights on with key. And checking connections, want to get the coil onedone next Bob it out a little etc...
The bike had some spark plug issues at 1st so replace a set them it fouled 1 out and was running on one cylinder and there's a thread in here. Cleaned and recut the spark plug wires one was super bad in weathering, So I did the seafoam in the tank as directed and the spray in on both carbs. Ran it on the interstate and its been fine ever since.
I had a throttle cable about to pop and couldn't find a place near me or anywhere that I could get the inner wire cable. So pulled new steel braided wire from Home Depot through the original throttle push-pull cables "it's the smallest wire on the pull-it-yourself-&-cut isle and its actually a little thicker than the OEM wire" 1ft=$0.32
Pushed it rite through both after trying for a hot minute to rig it to pull it through with original broke wire. Lubed it up and it's running smooth..
I should have gotten on here way earlier but I am very hard headed and very much against buying a set of you only need a piece of it.. anyways
