    I had a VN750 a few years ago and loved it. Did all the mods to include the ear shave, rejet and some Harley pipes. Sissy bar, luggage rack and Mustang seat made it more flexible and gave a more comfortable ride. Loved the maneuverability and spunk this bike had. Eventually bought a VN900...
  2. Electrical
    Dropped by 1994 750cc Vulcan and the front left turn signal broke. The bulb and wiring is still good so maybe I just need to replace the filter/light cover. I bought an OEM replacement for the entire signal but am not familiar with doing electrical work. Do I need to disconnect the battery...

    Fairly new to the 2 wheel life. Started with a CF Mofo V5 250cc. An automatic, but didn't look like your typical scooter. Had a cruiser style image to it. With that, I learned the fundamentals of riding. Well fortunately / unfortunately ever you want to see it, someone ran in to it in the...

    I bought my first bike a couple weeks ago. 93 VN750 with only 26k. This bike is MINT! Only Paid $900. So far, loving it. Does anyone recommend maintenance that should be done right away when buying a older used bike? This bike was well taken care of previously. I believe I'm the 3rd owner. I...

    Hey folks, I just bought my first bike 2 days ago on 4/20/15. Its the one in my profile pic, '92 green/green Vulcan 750 all stock. First thing I did was take off the windscreen. The previous owner was a nice guy who let it go for $800, a steal in my opinion. It does not appear to need any...

    Hello all, Just purchased a 1994 VN750 from one of your forum members Born-In-Sin. Can't find his username anywhere, so I figure I must have spelled it wrong. He did a great job on the bike, separate electrical system with aux power and some other nice details and upgrades. Cleaned out the...

    Hey, so I was going to change my coolant in my bike, and instead decided it would be way more fun to break the radiator drain bolt. I was wondering if there is an easy way to get it out, and if anyone has a spare laying around before I go shopping for a new one. Any help would be appreciated...
