A 1985 750? Sure? Not a USA bike?

They are paper filters...and they do spin on also. Where are you located?

I used Wal-Mart ST 7317 filters.... As far as I understand it , all VN models can use the same filter.

US Vulcan in 1985 was 700 cc due to a trade tarriff on anything larger.
Filters for the vn700/750s are the same from 1985-1994 with a diameter of 2.95 inches.
Later models may be able to use them too.

Oil filter
- '85-'94 = larger size 2.95" diameter
- '95 up = smaller size 2.76" diameter
Purolator Pure One Filters are the BEST quality filter available at the best price for that quality. They are hard to find in my area.

http://www.calsci.com/motorcycleinfo/Filters.html
Purolator makes filters in three qualities, standard, premium, and Pure One. Purolator states that their premium filters capture 97.8% @ 30 microns and 85.2% @ 20 microns. These numbers are typical of a normal paper element oil filter. The Purolator Pure One filters capture 99.8% @ 30 microns and 99.2% @ 20 microns. This means the Premium filter is letting through eleven times as many 30 micron particles as the Pure One, and eighteen times as many 20 micron particles. Clearly, the Pure One filter is doing a considerably better job of cleaning the oil than the premium filter.

The way the Pure One achieves this filtering efficiency is by combining three different types of materials in their filter: paper like everyone else to catch the big stuff, and cellulose and fiberglass fibers to fill in the "large" holes in the paper with their much finer fibers. Filters like this are now made by Purolator, Hastings (marketed as AMS), and Champion (marketed as Mobil 1 and Bosch). Accordingly, the best oil filters are the Purolator Pure One, Mobil-1, AMSOil, and Bosch. If you use one of these filters with one of the commercial synthetic oils listed above, you have the best protection money can buy.


An ST 7317 oil filter from Wally World will fit your bike and is good quality at a bargain price of about $3.

Amen brother! Years ago, they were very good filters and actually a Consumers Report best buy IIRC. But that changed over time.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!
