I sold my 81 Suzuki GS450L a month ago and so I just bought a 93 VN750 off Craigslist.
The right side cover was burned through by a wet cell battery exploding with additional damage from leaking down. I ordered a side cover from eBay, grommet, and a missing swing arm cap.
The damaged battery had been replaced by another wet cell. That's when I bought it with starting issues. I replaced the battery with a new gel cell from Sears, and it runs smoother and is a little easier to start.
The speedometer stopped functioning on day 3. So I've got a new speedometer cable on order, hopefully that's all it is.
It has some pretty loud popping when decelerating, which I intend on coastering after everything else is working, and because I can't find any marbles.
Lastly, once production of RR relocation brackets continues, I plan on getting one of those and doing that.
Whew, I think that covers everything.
Any other recommendations?
