yes, I agree. I like the look of the 500 rear fender better too. but which model of 500 rear fender are you asking about? there are 2 models, the EN500 vuclan and the vulcan 500 ltd.

if it goes vroom or boom, I LIKE IT!

katana would be correct. (shinobi -means ninja)


I do not know of anyone that has used either of the 500 rear ends on the 750, but that does not mean it can't be done. It would not be a direct bolt and play type thing. The 500 has a smaller rear tire does it not?

Many have altered the seat here, but not so sure about what fenders they used.

Perhaps someone that has fabbed up something simular will post up.

The vn500 LTD has a 140/90-15 rear tire.
That is only 10mm (~3/8") narrower than the 750`s 150/90-15.
The 500 fender width should be close, but as mentioned it will not be a direct bolt on to the 750.

the fender on the EN500 vulcan is NOT metal, it is plastic! I'm not sure if the vulcan 500 LTD is metal or plastic.
