That just means you need PRACTICE. Keep on wrenching any time you can and you'll be giving advice here in no time.

I used to be great with theory and really bad with practice. I bought a basic set of tools and dove in. I'm not a mechanical guru, but I can at least say I'm better than most mechanics in my area (which only means that mechanics here SUCK).

When in doubt, just search online! There's a "How-to" for everything online. As far as the VN750 goes, this is a great place to both read up on info, mods, etc, or ask questions to the more experienced members. I've learned a LOT on here

Precisely so. You remove them by unscrewing them, if I recall correctly.

I didn't think that is something I should force, unless it's ok to muscle them on...?

Ceal No, these do fit. I have them in my bike. No mods at all.

Are there other mods that need to happen so that works?
The Iridiums are fine for your bike. I have used them for 2 years. No mods needed. From NGK http://www.ngksparkplugs.com/part_fi...d=6155&type=ir
EDIT- link didn't work. If you go to NGK site, click on products, motorcycle, Kawasaki. Then click on engine size, Vulcan 750 will come up, click on check mark for Iridium plugs. It shows the DPR7E1X-9 for the Vulcan 750

Ceal The DPR7EIX-9 are Iridium plugs. They do make quite a difference.
