    Hey guys, I'm a new rider, a new Vulcan owner, and obviously new to the forum. My 93 Vulcan is my first bike. It runs great...for the most part. The only trick is starting. When you turn the key on you can't just push the starter. You need to hold the starter button and then wiggle the key...

    Put a new batt. in after noticing the maintainer seemed to be charging more than most winters. The batt. was bought in 12 so that seemed normal. Rode the bike about 30 miles, after not being on charger for a week or so(new batt) and it died on me and had to be trailered home. Recharged batt and...

    Hello, I bought a used vn500 '07 with 11k miles 6 months ago, fixed up everything two detailed inspections discovered, changed the battery and an hour ago i drove to the diner with choke on, as i turned off the bike and left with the keys after 5 yards, a huge explosion was heard, i'd say louder...

    Hey everyone, I'm wanting to do a keyless ignition on my vulcan, but I don't know what approach to take. Should I buy one of those RFID switch kits or what? I'm not a complete newb with electronics modding but I don't want to end up opening a can of worms either.

    So this is new. The bike starts right up beautifully when i first get on it. If I ride ten minutes and turn it off, it doesn't want top start again until I let it sit for about ten minutes. Then the starter weakly turns things over but very weakly it feels like. Once it sits then it's back...

    Greetings, I'm a newbie, so please forgive any lapses in comity. Anyway, trying to get my '89 VN750 back on the road. It was running fine, until I put it in the garage while a two week spate of rain kept me off the road. When the weather broke, it wouldn't crank over. Exactly like what a dead...

    I am somewhat new to a Vulcan. I am helping my friend who bought a 92 Vulcan 750 a couple of years ago and was always having problems with it until it simply would not start any more. We researched the problem and found it was not getting enough juice to keep running and determined the Stator...

    Hey Yall! I am planning on relocating my ignition switch to the right hand side of the battery box cover and am looking into aftermarket ignition switches. After looking at my bike I noticed that there is something like 6 wires coming out of it versus the 3 wires that are found on most...

    Hello, I have a problem with a '94 VN750 that I have had just a year. At the end of last season it started exhibiting this problem, and it continues this year. I am relatively new to bikes so I could really use some advice in figuring out where to go with this: The bike will start just fine...

    Im about to put my pickup coils back into my cover, but I forgot to mark which one was where when I removed. Does it matter or can they go in either place? Is there anything I should pay attention to when screwing them in, or do the screws automatically place them with the proper clearance...

    Hello, This is my first post on VN750.com but I have been reading a lot recently on the forums. I recently bought a 1993 Vulcan 750 with around 18k miles.

I did a simple spark test and found that both plugs on the rear cylinder are not sparking though the front works fine. Additionally if the spark plugs are swapped and put on the wires from the front they...
