VN750Rider/Jerry Just think how great the Vulcan 750 would be if Kawasaki had solved all it's little problems. It would have been easy for them, and they had 22 years to do it. They didn't even fix that joke of a tool box door. It's still a great bike, but it would have taken so little to make it perfect.

Knifemaker Isn't that basicly the same article that was posted here 10 days ago?

Perhaps I'll merge them later...

In the meantime, I found an article from 1997 that I thought was interesting after reading several discussions from folks who are looking for a middleweight bike and discussed the Honda and Suzuki as alternatives to the VN 750.

The article has a some great information and merely confirms why we love our Vulcans. They are quick, handle well and for the most part are vibration-free. Certainly they have some MX quirks...stator, shaft drives, battery and carbs, but for the most part they deliver what the bike was designed to provide. Fun. Pure unadulterated fun!
Mileage normally decrease's with re-jetting.....re-jetting not necessary performing Ear Shave with stock exhaust.
Throttle control increase's/decrease's fuel mileage.
