Hi. I just bought a 1986 Vulcan 750. I'm new to Kawasaki. I have never owned a Kawasaki as I tend to buy Hondas. I'm here to learn as much as I can about these bikes. I do all my own wrenching and am going to be restoring this bike.

I ended up with this bike because one of my friends told one of their friends I worked on motorcycles in my spare time and I might be willing to work on it. He claimed the stator was bad and needed to be replaced. I told him what it would cost to do that job. Long story short it was going to cost him more than the bike was worth to fix it so I offered him $200 and he said ok. I lowballed him because I really didn't need another project bike and I thought he'd say no. I was wrong. Now that I have it at home and have checked it out it's not the stator but a hack wiring job that was draining the battery.

Can't beat that deal. I paid $1000 for mine in the dead of winter. It wouldn't take long for repair bills to outpace the cost of the bike.
