Just bought a new '09 Vulcan 900 Custom. Traded in a '05 Z-750 to help pay for it. I was trying to adjust my headlights, which meant adjusting beam against garage door with the cycle running, driving off into the night a short distance, readjusting, again. Heard my fan kicking on a lot. Just when I thought I had it done, I turned off the engine to do something real quick. Came back a few minutes later, wouldn't start. Turned over, noticed the oil light blinking while trying to turn over. Was hot, humid, about 90 degrees out. I think the engine was just too warm and some safety thing kicked in to keep from damaging engine. Left it alone overnight, started fine next morning. Been fine for the past week. Just have over 600 miles on it so far. Casual observation, I like my new Vulcan 900 but just doesn't seem as 'tight' as my Z-750 was. Fan kicks on the Vulcan more too in this Kansas summer heat than the Z did. Not unexpected going from
Z-750 to a Vulcan, I guess.
