Vn800

I noticed there is no 800 section, would that model be grouped in with the 900 area?

I think so.
The Vulcan 900 Custom, the Vulcan 900 Classic and the Vulcan 900 Classic LT, as well as the discontinued Vulcan 800 and Vulcan 750 series are all mixed up in that one looks like.
I like the VN800. Fine machine and they make a really wicked beginning for a Bobber project. I'm always keeping my eye out for an old one layin around somewhere for cheap.

I'll let you know if I can get it scanned, as well as the factory svc. manual I should be getting soon in the mail.

Thanks Andy, i guess this is to be expected when buying used. No manual and no toolset. I am waiting on the suspension adjust tool from kawi to get here. For now i was able to use a hammer and punch to adjust the suspension cuz it was set to the softest setting, yuk.

Flash, I dont have an owners manual for my '97 800 classic but I tell you that these bikes are champs. What I have is a link were you can get the entire service manual for the scoot.This a 2 part .PDF file. You will need WinRAR to extract the pdf from its file. Hope this helps.
