Hey there guys and gals,

I posted here last week asking about the issues on the VN 750's. Between the responses and looking at some of the other topics, I got some really good information. First I wanted to thank all of you for the info here. I like to know what I'm getting into before I buy (learned that lesson the hard way).

Anyway, I bought the 2000 VN this weekend and I love it. There's plenty of power, the seat seems comfortable enough (for now) and it's a blast to ride. It does still have the belly, but that should be corrected soon enough. The splines were not lubed from the factory and the whole assembly was replaced at ~7000 miles (it now has 17,000 miles and has been properly maintained). The guy I bought it from didn't know about the stator issues on the bike, so the r/r is still in the stock location (another thing that will soon be corrected). The battery is only a couple of years old, but I'm going to invest in the maint. free battery (I forget the brand, but I've seen it here and will look it up before I buy).

So VN750.com, meet Rowdy.

Good get! Nice color! And it sounds like at least one of the potential major issues (splines) has already been addressed.

Welcome to the Forum (even if you do appear to be a Cowboys fan (Go, Eagles!)), and happy and safe riding!

I couldn't find one in Cowboys silver and blue...but I may have to have it re-painted. The star would look good right there where the "V" goes, huh?

Thanks for the welcome, I won't hold the Eagles thing against you. :boxing:

Congrats BigT on your new bike! Glad to hear your splines were already taken care of. You're going to enjoy the bike more knowing that!

I like the silver star idea. Or, paint the tank sides silver and use the same star as your avitar. Cool!

Congrats on you new Vulcan.:smiley_th

Some people here don't have any issues with the stock seat. I can cruise all day on it.
Been on several 1000mi. weekend rides and it didn't really bother me.

Enjoy the new ride, and Welcome to the Wonderful World of Vulcans !! :motorcycl

The seat does seem comfortable, though I haven't been on any long rides yet. The main reason for changing the seat would be for asthetics. The stock one will have to do for a while, the boss is kind of tight with the budget sometimes and the "funds approval" for a new seat may take some time, especially if she thinks this one is comfortable too. :D
