|sabian131||I followed the process from the stickie post and rode my bike around the block for the first time tonight! The description were great! The pictures were great! I know nothing about motorcycles, engines, transmissions ... but the job is done! Thanks everyone for your help. I am truly grateful.|

Not sure why this site can't do the same for new members. I think there was a "top ten things a new vulcan owner should know" but it's not easy to find....it would seem.
I do think if you spend any time here, you would encounter many posts on "lubing the splines"....so it does seem odd that if someone has been a member here for 4 years it's hard to understand that they were unaware of the issue....
But you shouldn't get offended simply because someone pointed that out....

Edit: I wish that app you used to post didn't spam itself all over the boards!

i apologize if my choice of words offended anyone. i wasn't expecting to be lectured on my inability to identify the wealth of knowledge available to me and knowing exactly what i should be paying attention to. i was just looking for advice to a problem. whomever it was that said the information here can be overwhelming was right, especially for someone who knows nothing about motorcycles and engines but is ready to learn.
it is completely my fault that it took me 4 years to have the time and energy to invest into learning about the bike and that i made everyone
perhaps if new members were to receive a direct email describing this issue and where to look for answers upon registering, the importance would be that much more obvious? just a thought...
i look forward to resolving the problem with my bike and get back to riding. i appreciate everyone's help!

|Chuck A.||Quick check: Put the bike on the center stand, put trans into first gear with engine off, see if you can spin the rear tire by hand and listen closely at rear tire. If popping or grinding sound by tire = rear splines.|
