Welcome. Yep, you became a Vulcan 750 rider the hard way. Hope your new stator lasts awhile. I have 125,000 o 2 Vulcan 750s, and have yet to have a stator out, but I'm just waiting on it to happen, my luck can't hold out forever. The splines are definitely the most important thing to check on a newly purchased Vulcan 750. I do mine about every 10,000 miles, and do the front and rear drive splines and the ones the rear wheel engages with, all with the same grease, and I don't skimp on the grease. I actually disengage the front splines and pull back the rubber boot, and coat everything good with grease with a popsickle stick. The cost of a new front bevel gear case or final drive gear case is absolutely absurd, and I would not trust eBay replacements. Jerry.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
