New Rider Checkin

Hi,

Just wanted to take a moment and introduce myself. Been lurking for a couple of days since I bought my "new to me" 2003 VN750. Already put a couple of hundred miles on her, looking to find tech info and accessory advice. Haven't had time to peruse all the threads yet but already found some valuable advice on windshields, spark plugs and luggage in particular.

Welcome!
Do yourself a favor and spend some time reading the Vulcan Verses. They are a great wealth of information on the 750 and can save you a lot of trouble down the road because you know what to expect and how to prevent problems. Good luck and safe riding!

Second! I did this before and after getting my VN750 to know what I was getting into.

Hey Cliff, welcome to the group, you will love it here. BTW, we have a very nice member in MD whose name is also Cliff, cliffhusn is his screen name. Not only is he very nice but knows his 750.

Good luck with the new bike, mine is also a 2003 so maybe I am partial but it's a great machine as you are finding out. Good luck ride safe and as they say keep the shinny side up.

Welcome to the group! Like everyone said it is a great bunch of folks with a wealth of info on these bikes. Because of the year model I would definitely check your splines for lube ASAP. You'll find the procedure in my sig. Read all you can as you have the time in the Verses and such.
This forum will make owning this bike so much more fun for you. Glad you found us!

Welcome to the group. Yes, check your splines; my '89 was dry as a bone from the factory. Fergy's procedure makes it easy to do; just be sure to use high moly (60% or higher) grease.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!
