Hardware manual?

I just purchased a 750 about a month ago and as I tinker here and there on her I would like to replace all the hardware. Is there an online manual that lists all the part numbers for the bike. PDF download or buy makes no difference to me. I just hate putting a rusty/old hardware back on.
Cheers
Dan

Welcome Rungaul,

Good choice of bike!! What year is it? Not that it matters much for a manual, as there have been only several minor changes to the Vulcan in it's 20+ year lifetime, just curious.

As for the manual, there's one HERE, at TOC manufacturing, the makers of automatic cam chain tensioner (ACCT) springs for stock tensioners and manual cam chain tensioners (MCCT) for those that want to eliminate the ACCT's.

It is a parts, as well as service manual, so I hope ya don't have dial-up, as it's a LARGE pdf file

Thanks. Its a '85 with 40k on it. I bought it for $1800. I thought it was a good deal. Its my first real bike. I had a dual purpose before that but haven't rid in about 4 years. So far I am loving it.

You can also go to

and on the left click on "owner info" then pick "parts diagram" , it will take you to a page where you can put in your bike, and see blown up drawings of all the parts along with a list of parts and their part numbers..

Another curiosity question, are you in the US?
Here, the '85 was a 700cc, due to a tariff tax, then in '86 it got bumped up to the 750.
Those earlier Vulcans had the most differences as compared to the others. Mostly, air assisted front shocks and turnsignal cancelling, as well as the smalled diameter cylinder sleeve in the 700, ofcourse.
Some of the other differences are square to round front brake master cylinder cap, aluminum to chromed parts, black painted engine (just on the '85) and wheels (just on the '85 & '86) and a slightly different cover on the seat.
Otherwise, most parts are identical.
