Welcome. Hopefully you have both checked your cam chains and tensioners, and checked and lubricated the final drive splines. Those are two major (and EXPENSIVE) failure points on the Vulcan 750. The Vulcan 750 is a great bike when everything is right, but has a lot of issues, most of which IMO are Kawasaki's fault, from either poor design and/or poor manufacturing. Again IMO, you should not just buy one of these bikes and start riding it. It needs a thorough going over, a lot of maintenance, and possibly some repairs first. A lot of people have bought these bikes and did considerable damage to them in short order because they did not go to the trouble of checking a number of things that need to be checked. I don't know why there is not a "sticky" that lists all these issues, and how to check/service/repair them, as well as what to look/listen for BEFORE buying one.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
