|liljd||Mine gave me a few probs too but about the only probs I have now are the carbs and acct's but it still runs good and is fairly dependable. So for an 85 I'm pretty happy.|

I've been struggling with my bike as well. I still am and I probably still will for at least a few more months. However, I enjoy working on it. I enjoyed working on my Mustang and learned a LOT about 5.0 Mustangs on it. Now I'm learning about this bike as I go through the whole process of fixing it up.
Someone in this forum said I probably have the worst luck a new Vulcan rider has ever had hahaha I think that might not be too far-fetched. I've had tons of issues, but this site has helped me overcome them.
Right now I ride my bike school and it's doing alright. It's not perfect (yet) but at least now it starts right up (used to be too hard to start) and it's good enough to ride.
Next few months will keep having a positive impact on my bike as I work out the rest of the kinks! most of it thanks to this site!
I think if I can do it, there's no reason that you can't!

|VN750_DawgsFan||Congrats on the kid. I understand about money being tight. I have a 2 year old myself. Kids are expensive lol|

Hey congrats on havin' a kid man!
If you get some time, let us know what you're working on and what you need to fix her. Tap the enormous wealth of experience that is this website. I promise, no matter what is wrong with your bike, someone here has fixed it before.

I appreciate all of the responses on this. I am not ready to give up on her yet, but I will certainty keep you all informed if I am looking to sell. It is such a nice ridding bike, I would like to get it where it needs to be and have some fun with her before I eventually decide to upgrade. I just had a kid, so money is a little tight right now. This is what I can afford to ride. I am grateful I found this bike at the price I did…otherwise I wouldn’t have gotten to ride at all this year.
Anyways….i will keep you guys updated on my progress. At the very least it is a winter time project….lol

I understand your frustration...I do. Mine was kind of the same way but I stuck with it for a couple of years and just rode the storm out. Now it runs fantastic and seems really dependable. I just keep up with all the preventative maintanance now. It is a machine so there's no guarantees.
So I aggree with the majority on this one....if you like the bike...stick it out. Otherwise finding a different bike might acheive your asphalt happiness!
Just don't part it out...give someone else a crack at it ~

|slimvulcanrider||You mean there are bikes out there that you don't have to work on.. now why would I want one of those... I thought the whole reason of owning a bike was to work on it.. and riding the bike was a bonus.|
