  1. Electrical
    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...
  2. Carbs and Fuel System
    Hi, I'm working on this 1993 Vulcan 750 that I purchased last week and noticed that when the bike is running, the choke does not seem to make any difference in the idle. Can you please look at the YouTube video that I uploaded showing what is happening and help me figure out if the choke is...
  3. Carbs and Fuel System
    I ran across this article this morning. This makes total sense and if anyone has the cajones to try it that would be great. So at some point I mentioned that my hot start issue went away after cleaning the carbs. This might be because of a pilot jet issue and it may dovetail into this...
  4. Carbs and Fuel System
    I have a 1999 Vulcan 750 with no modifications. I had an issue about a month ago when starting the bike to come home from work. The bike cranked fine and ran with choke on for about 1 minute.

  7. VN750 General Discussion
    OK, this is a lame question, but the more I read on here, the more I realize that I'm doing a lot wrong when it comes to the bike, so I'm just double checking everything... What is the proper way to start the bike first thing, when it's cold? What I do now is I engage the chock all the way, it...

    So I bought my 2000 V750 back about three weeks ago (have not had a chance to ride it yet) I changed the oil and was a milky brown color. So I replaced the water pump gasket and that seems to have fixed that issue. My second problem is that I cleaned the carbs while doing this I decided to do an...
