Welcome to the Vulcan Madness. Your post is not clear to me on whether you have been riding another bike, or the vn, for two years. It sounds like you just put in a new battery and are ready for your first ride on a new-to-you scoot. The Yuasa MF-AGM battery is a good choice. If you have already been riding the 750, have you noticed any difference, like easier starting, since changing the old battery out?

If you are moving up to the 750 from a smaller mc, go easy when rolling on the throttle for the first few rides. The power and torque have surprised more than one new rider, and taken him down when not respecting the power that is available. It is nothing to be afraid of, just be aware, and consciously use a low wrist position on the throttle when moving off the first few times.

Check out link below for stuff you may not already know. Vulcan Verses is also a good place to spend a few hours reading when not out riding.

Enjoy the cruise on this board, and on the highway.

Welcome. The Vulcan 750 is a great bike, with a few annoying issues. If you have not already done so, check and lube the final drive splines NOW. Jerry.
