Talking New VN750 Forum Member...


I own a 2003 Vulcan 750.
Been having issues starting it up when it is cold, and
I am looking for replacements mufflers because my right muffler gave out.
Searching the web in relation to these issues led me here.

I look forward to joining in...

Welcome to the sight, lots of info in the Forum. Everthing you need to know is there and some, any questions just give a yell and some one should answer.
As for replacement mufflers there are some on Ebay at this time. Go to the forum and click on item on Ebay and it will bring up items for sale just for the 750 vulcan. The hard starting can be several things, you may need a new gel battery, more amps and longer starting power. You may need to adjust the mixture screws also, the bikes come from the factory set lean. All this info is in the forum. A lot of reading is required. LOL

Welcome! Start with the section called the Vulcan Verses, paying particular attention to getting a maintenance-free battery, lubing the rear drive splines, and - new - installing a voltmeter so you'll have a heads-up if your charging system become fu-barred. LOTS of great info here, and wonderful folks who've all helped each other through various 750 trials and tribulations.

Thumbs up Replies...

Wow - I appreciate all the quick replies.

I am located in Central Florida.

I picked up some SeaFoam last night.
I have been using high test, but am going to try regular with some sea foam after reading around the site some.

I also am going to check out the Vulcan Verses in the very near future.

Still gotta give some thought as to mufflers.
I am thinking about removing the pre-muffler (goats belly), but I am not sure yet.

If you need a muffler and want to get rid of the goats belly your best bet is to get a aftermarket exhaust that replaces both.

Otherwise I would reccomend the goats belly replacment kit from
