compare all of these problems to those of similar makes and models and what do you come up with? and if you notice... its mostly the same problem over and over again... Stators, Cam Chain Tensioners, Final Drives, Ballancers, and Seals... all common wear and tear items... other than the stator... which shouldn't fail as often as most... but this problem isn't just a VN750 problem... its a prone issue with many makes and models of bikes...Wow. I am amazed at all these problems. I guess I've just been lucky, and the Vulcan 750 isn't as reliable as I thought it was. Jerry.
