Hallo All!

My name is Jarek and I live in Warsaw, Poland. Do you know where it is..?...not at all.
I bought my first Kawa 1993 VN750A and had a trip for 200km to my city with temerature about 0! Nice experience! But moto works good.
Waiting for a summer and looking for owners manual first.
Best regards for all!

Welcome to the forum. If you have any questions about the VN750, this is the place to find the answers.

Isn't Warsaw just down the road from Krakow? Glad the bike is running well. Spring is coming!

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

Welcome to the Vulcan forum Jarek. I checked the map and find that Warsaw is 8,500 miles due east from Alberta.
I would come join you for a ride, but there is a big pond between us!!

I can`t help you with an owners manual, but here is a link to a free downloadable Kawi VN750 service manual:
http://www.tocmanufacturing.com/File...nd%20Parts.pdf

Many or most of the rider/owners here bought our Vulcans used and never got an owners manual either. If you really feel the need to have one, check our link to all things vn750 on ebay. One shows up once in a while. There are very few changes from 1985 to 2006 models, so any model year`s owners manual should be pretty much the same.

See my link below, and spend some time reading the Vulcan Verses.
Especially note the MF-AGM battery, NGK-Iridium spark plugs, and the rear spline lube.

One money saving tip is to use constant velocity joint lube for the rear splines. It is available at any auto supply store typically for $5-$10, compared to the Honda Moly60, which is often very high priced ($24 per 100ml tube (3 1/2 ounces) here at the local Honda stealership).

The CV joint lube usually comes in a heavy duty plastic bag, and you will have a lifetime supply. Just cut off a corner to give a small 1/4 inch opening to squeeze out what lube you need, then fold over and seal off for next time. I checked this out again last night with a 2nd mechanic with 25 or 30 years experience, and has been riding bikes for as long or longer, and he agrees that the CV joint lube should be as good as anything available for spline lubes.

Welcome fellow European.

If you are prepared to wait a month or so while the Pound sinks even lower against the Euro you will be able to pick up a Haynes or Clymer manual for the VN from Ebay UK for about the price of 2 beers. So don't be in too much of a hurry to buy one.

Mine is a Red one.

He was looking for an Owners Manual, as opposed to a Service Manual. I gave him a link to the toc site and the free Kawi service manual, but a Clymer is a good second reference too.
