Hey fellow VN750 owners! Never knew this community was this big it had it's own forum, but here I am.

I'm a new rider from The Netherlands, 28years old, and hopefully soon with my licence for this beautiful 750cc beast. I recently got this Vulcan from a friend for free since it had a "slight" issue, and since he got a vn2000 that day. Originally I was looking for a Yamaha Virago 750, but the Vulcan grew on me from the first time when I saw it.

the Vulcan that I have is from '94 with just over 50k km on the dial on original block and cilinder (as far as i'm told).
Recently i purchased the Haynes manual for it, and been doing some maintenence to it, polishing the chrome and all that stuff.

I drove a little bit on it after the repairs it needed.. It had a grinding noise when put in gear. It idled perfectly, revved up nice and all of that, but when you put it in gear, it grinded from the rear, but that's something I'll post later about in a seperate post, long story short: found the problem, fixed the problem, drove it, now it's back again.

anyway, thanks for letting me join this community!

Welcome to the machine!

I would bet the splines were dry and probably slipping.

There's a download for the factory service manual and parts catalog in my signature. Hit the dropdown arrow.

You're welcome.

If it's the splines you'll want to do it before riding much more. The grinding destroys the splines on the driveshaft coupler and the splines on the final drive assembly. The splines can slip and lock together, making it much harder to take apart.
