Question first ask for help...

Hey guys i looked for this and came up dry so i'm sorry ahead of time if i missed it... I know theres a difference between the brake and clutch levers from my 86 to the newer then 89 model 750's... does anyone know for sure what the difference is? i found some levers i want off a new bike and wanna know if i can fab them in without destroying them... or if anyone has a set that match for the older bike thats second resort... mine are clutch painted brake chrome, and brake bent and bent back a few too many time... (lots of stress cracks...)

Just can't leave well enough alone...

just looked on ebay, and stock will work but i'd like to keep my theme going of almost nothing original... I like to stand out in a crowd of peers... i'm hands on and love to help others not greedy for attention, just like the looks while traveling... when you see a wild bike or wicked hot rod going down the highway along side your minivan it reminds us of better times... at least it does for me... lol

Flanders made a wide blade lever for the bike, but I am pretty sure they no longer make them for the 750...for any year. (they might still carry the clutch levers)

I found some for my bike, but mine was a 2002 model. Ebay is your best bet unless someone knows better...

I believe all vn750 clutch levers are the same shape.

The brake levers on the rectangular master cylinders from 1985 to 1990 models have a dog leg bend downward of perhaps 10-15*.

Brake levers on `91 and newer models with the round mc are straight, or more correctly flat, rather than bent.

I think Kuryakyn makes wide bladed chrome levers for the vn.

Küryakyn lists wide chrome levers for '91-'06 Vulcans on their site.
