I've been fretting over the swing arm maintenance on my bike since 7500 miles (nearly 18k on the ticker now) and when I was gonna get it done. I checked with my local shop to ask how much they wanted to do the swing arm and driveshaft....well, their answer convinced me to do it myself ($400 -...
As promised, here is my Caddman Air Mod tutorial. I take no credit for thinking this up, nor do I take credit in figuring it out myself. The original instructions can be found at Gadget’s page here:
If you want to get straight to the install, skip the...
After getting aftermarket pipes on my bike and ditching the stock goat bag, I knew the next thing I needed to do was do something about that ugly rectifier. I could spend $100 on a chrome cover for it and add some more chrome to my bike, but I saw some pictures, and I thought it still looked out...

Anyone know how I can get the dimensions of an engine (ZX10B) and weight without taking it out and putting on a weighbridge?
Welp I started chopping up my 2000 VN800 Vulcan Classic so I figured I better start a thread on it.
This is it in it's stock form.
I just got my 1996 vn classic. So heres the start and progress to come.
Over the past year, I may aswell have put "bobber project pictures" on my google speed dial while I dreamed up what I could do. That turned into searching for a bike and finding all the different models, years, and types people bob. I've lurked on this forum, seen some awesome bike builds from...
Here's a thread on my little 800 project.
Not sure what to call it, it has Chopper bits, and Bobber bits.
I am following a slightly minimalist approach, but I like shiny stuff, so there will be Chrome. (You've been warned)

After looking at all the projects on here I just had to have a go, so I have been out and bought a 96 VN800a. Average mileage and condition and completly new territory to me. I have had nothing but sports bikes for the past 15 years so I am on a steep learning curve.
So far I am...

Any tips would be great. I decided to take on the project of tearing apart my
1980 750 LTD . No experience with bikes so it's an adventure. Plan is to repaint and make it into a bobber on a budget. Been documenting the removal of every part by video, would be happy to upload the progress here but...
Well, I've been riding for 15 years or so, mostly sport bikes, but have always admired the VN800's. So right before Christmas I bought one :-D. Found a pretty good deal on a 98 classic, love the fat front tire, for $2k and it already had V&H Drag pipes on it. Looks like it will make a perfect...
Ok, I read the "how to" on the Delphi Knowledge Base but I didn't really understand it all which made me a little hesitant about attempting this mod. I was already at stage 1 (screens drilled) but I wanted more sound. I like the looks of the factory pipes and the heat shields are the best so I...
Anyone know if the GTR rings are suitable or are any 250's that used the same rings as the 10B as their a bit hard to come bye?
My engine is smoking,or was up until it lost all compression in No2 and most in No1 pot. New head gasket and look at valves and seals and while we are in there rings and...

I found the Russian Wolf's web site and did the performance mods, got rid of the epa, rejet carb, changed the intake exhaust, crankcase vent filter, changed the sprockets 18/40, lowered 3", phat risers, mustang day tripper seat, this bike has...
First time customizing a bike and am under way with my VN800. I have done most of the cosmetics but would now like to relocate the starter button to the side pods or such and am just looking for some advice on how to go about it. Is it a case of just tracing the wiring from the starter...
Thought I would try my hand at starting my own thread. Thanks to Alley Rat, Dave, Steve, Mike, and all the rest that have molded their 800's into works of art. Big inspirations there.
When I purchased my scoot back in April of 2008, it was a stock 2000 VN 800 A. All that was done to it was...
A small word of warning regarding DNA or other Wide-Glide springer swaps.
I know there is a kit out there, to adapt a Springer type front end to Metric bikes, including the Vulcan 800.
It does work, sort of.
The kit comes with custom bearings and spacers to adapt the 1" stem to the Kaw...

So far i have removed the fan and t-stat, removed all the mess from the...
