Hello everyone, I'm also new to the forum and new to riding. I purchased my first bike about a month ago. A 1996 Vulcan 800, for $2,400. Finding out bit by bit that the previous owner was a real tinkerer, but not much of a mechanic. Little things like missig exhaust gaskets! and aftermarket pipes that were never meant to fit on the bike (with a great sound, but major loss of power) etc. I will be on here quite a bit soliciting advice and reading through posts trying to pick the bike back up. Any advice experienced riders can provide concerning exhaust, intake, paint and backfire will be greatly appreciated! Thanks much!
