Hello, new member from Fl. Just acquired 2002 Vulcan 800 14 K . Bought it on Facebook market place at a fantastic price. Rode it home no problems about a hour and half ride. Looks to be all original, baffles still in pipes. It may have had cogs changed because it does not want to go slow or to cruise slow, say 10 to 15 mph. Ride home was 98 degrees out and engine really kept me hot. I guess thatís normal. No over heat warnings. Seems to be cold natured for first 5 or 6 miles guess ( from what I read ) thatís normal too. About half of the ride was on interstate 65 to one time 75 mph . Didnít mean to go that fast , just happened. Some bike history , I had some dirt bikes when I was a kid mini 50 then Hodaka 100 to 250 Yamaha. Got a steal on a 1984 650 Maxim for 1500.00 in 85. Kept it for a few months and sold it. Then I got a Suzuki GS 550 that needed the carbs done, I fixed that and sold it. Years later here I am, Thanks so much for accepting me to the forum.
