Thanks for the link. I think I'm going to start off by giving it an oil change. I figure it can't hurt. After looking at the service manual it seems like the oil change is incredibly easy. I'd like to replace the filter also. Can I get a new one at most repair shops? As far as oil goes, I think 10W-40 is probably my best bet living in Florida unless you guys think otherwise. Is there a particular brand of oil that you would recommend? The service manual says to clean the oil screen with a high flash point solvent. Can you guys give me an example of a high flash point solent that you use? Lastly, the service manual shows a bunch of different models of VN 750s that all look pretty similar to me, how do I know which one is mine?
