    Default Vulcan 750's

    I wanted to get some ideas to chop up/mod my Vn750 but haven't seen a whole lot on here. The 800's and 500's, yes, but nada on the one between.

    Yeah, I checked out this one site, Cd Thayer's, but it's nothing really to the extent that I have in mind.

    The handlebars are the only major change right now that I've gotten to do so far. Any other ideas?

    What style do you want? Bobber, chopper, cafe? Any pics of the bike as it sits now?

    I'd like it to be more of a "bobber".

    This is as it sits now.
    Not the best pic, but I've only changed the handlebars so far.

    i wanna get rid of and change a lot of it in order to get it how I like

    Yeah what death metal dan said. Take off the turn signals, mirrors, front fender, horns, seat, cut off the back park of the frame, lose the air box and put a K&N or pod filters on, chop off the muffler or pull the baffles out. Pretty much all the advice I have!

    OleDirtyDoc, I've seen you around on here and on the vn750 forum I think? Good lookin' bike ya got there, it's changed a bit since I last saw it somewhere online.

    Pretty much all that's been mentioned above is what I decided has to be done since I started riding it about two years ago. The goats belly thing, that would easily take 20lbs off the weight and increase the power output, right?

    Now I just totally find what I can make fit onto the bike easier. Wasn't sure if I should go the mean streak or the sporty, with the seats.

    Degoating alone drops low end a little. Now degoat, do an earshave with either k&n or uni's,rejet, and either coaster or block off the air valves and she'll be running good.all stuff easily found on the Vulcan forum

    That's what I remember her looking like haha.

    That looks like the Predator bike lol, but I like the look of the back end. Good idea

    I really want to get rid of those ears, so maybe I'll do that whole thing soon after the weather starts getting too cold. Got to take care of a few things on my jeep xj too. When I had my mechanic replace the rear tire, I asked him to take a look at the splines too. Apparently the PO took care of that already, so one less thing for me!

    Just my two cents, but I had my stator go out on me and when I got it replaced I had the tuxedo mod done at the same time. I rode at least 5 days a week to/from work and then some, it hasn't given me a problem yet. Knock on wood.
