    I haven't been able to ride my 95 vn750 lately so I haven't had time to wrench on the bike or even be active on the forum. My bike sat for like a month I bought a new AGM battery for it and a soliniod (mine went bad) installed them without a hitch. I put my key in the ignition all my lights lit...
  2. Engine / Exhaust / Cooling
    So this weekend I had to take the carbs off and fix the floats. Had trouble with flooding, and the floats wouldn't close. I was able to fix that and put the bike back together. Now she struggles to start hot or cold. It took me 10 mins or so of starting to get it running. But once its running...

    Hello, first off thank you to everyone who helps me solve this problem. I will describe the bike, then the issue and everything I know and have checked. The bike is a 94 and the previous owner had done electrical work on it to make it minimalistic. To start the bike one flips two switches and...

    So I pulled my starter to rebuild, the brush part didn't fit. Put it back together and all I got was rapid clicking from the relay (and a little smoke from the starter). I pulled the starter again and ground down the brush plate so it would fit. Got everything installed and the starter turns...

    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...
  6. Engine / Exhaust / Cooling
    Okay so I am shopping for a new starter for my bike. I recently got it built (I got it as a box of parts and a frame) and I attempted to start it and it would roll over a few times (difficultly) and then stop like it had a dead battery. So I put a brand new battery in it and it is still doing...

    So I let my buddy ride my bike while i was out of town as a thank you for helping me drive to go get it and all that. While I'm gone he had a seal pop out holding coolant and now also the bike wont turn over. I had been having issues starting the bike up once in a while thinking its just an old...

    I have been on a 15,000 mile trip around the country for the past few months, and I've just begun having some problems starting the bike. The engine cranks but won't turn over. I've been able to get it to start a few times by banging on the engine with a wrench under the seat, but today I just...

    I just got a new battery (YB14L-A2 12 volt ) in March, I usually ride a lot to work almost daily, Since having the new battery I've had to drain some fluid out to make the levels right two times. I don't know if the heat in Texas is causing the fluid inside to expand and go above the high mark...
