Talking Hello All

Just recently bought a 93 VN750 as a first bike/small project (needs a little work done.) I was scouring the web look for a rear carburetor and stumbled across the forum, figured I'd join up! I'm sure this will be a valuable resource for me as I take care of this bike. Looking forward to speaking with you guys!

Welcome to the machine!

... And your new hobby, reading the forum. I crammed when I got here, read a lot before even buying the bike I've learned a lot from people that were here 10+ years ago.

Without a forum this good, my bike project would have gone a lot differently and would probably be missing some touches. Might've even passed on fixing the stator, but I bought with confidence that the info was here. It all made it turn out perfect for me.

Search search ... It's not perfect but the site search turns up some good old info.

Inspiration, you can find that here.

Thank you for the advice. I will definitely utilize the forum as a research/learning tool. I just picked up the bike yesterday, got a good look at it, and feel like I'm already in way over my head lol

Forum should keep you from drowning, I tried to read it all, but pretty sure I've read every new post since I landed. Really flattens that learning curve.

Slap in a pic if it's handy.

I don't have any at the moment, but I'll definitely get some this weekend. I have it sitting at my dad's house right now. He has a garage I can work in and I live in an apartment, so it gives me a place to store it without worry of getting towed/messed with/etc,.

You're probably going to have to buy a complete used carb on ebay unless someone here has one laying around. Why do you need a carb, most of them could just be rebuilt. I found Partzilla is a good source for carb parts along with a few other sites.

The guy who sold me the bike, gave me a brand new front carb, so I was trying to get a newer rear carb to match but I ended up just ordering a rebuild kit for the rear. I'm hesitant as I've never rebuilt a carb. I may be able to handle basic maintenance of a car but I'm not exactly "mechanically inclined", but I really like this bike and would like to be able to ride it. Also, apologies for not getting pictures, I never made it over to my dad's this weekend. The rebuild kit should arrive today so I'll definitely be there tonight.

I'm confused. The carbs on this thing are joined together ... both front and back are fused in one housing. What exactly did the guy give you?

Mine must be different as they are two separate housings. This is what he gave me with the bike.

Oh, I see. Carry on!

(I was thinking the carbs were fused and the bowls were on the outside, but it's the other way around! Whoops!)
