Hey Wolfie, a heads up on those mc's just in case you end up getting one without a hand lever. Seems that is one of the few parts that had a change at some point in the Vulcan timeline. Not sure if it' just the square vs round reservoir, or the year but I thought I'd mention that there are two different types of levers.

Correct. I think they changed to the round mc in 1991.

Yeah, what`s the old way?

My dust seals are disintegrating and I have a new set of oil and dust seals along with new circlips for the very top of the fork tubes.

The first clips they sold me were much larger and fit in the oil seals. I don`t recall reading anywhere that those oil seal clips/springs need to be replaced everytime they are removed. Please correct me if I am wrong.

I planned on using lance328`s directions and totally dismantling and cleaning the tubes and components before reassembling as outlined here:
https://www.vn750.com/forum/showthread.php?t=12827

I read a post yesterday saying it is not necessary to tear the forks down just to change the seals.
My scoot is 20 years old and I feel it is probably due for a complete service anyway.
Wolfie, I`m interested in hearing what an old biker`s opinion is on the subject.

Due to weather...

Due to the weather (and the danged arthritis in my hips), Ive delayed my seal change. Will write up a detailed account after theyre done (wanna make sure it works first).
But really, if its just seals and dust boots, should be no reason to fully disassemble. The key is in the actual seal removal method. And if its an older bike, after draining oil, we flushed first w/#2 fuel oil, then Automatic transmission fluid (to clear the #2). I still dont see the need to disassemble unless something else is gonna happen/be replaced.
Hint....in the actual service manual it mentions a "seal puller tool"...well, all it is, is a cheap auto dent puller really. Once the dustseal and snapring are removed, Im just gonna screw some decking screws into 4 spots on the seal, and then use the dent puller. new seals and boots should just slide right over the upper tube, and be tapped into place with a piece of PVC pipe.
But I'll write it all up when I do it and even take pics, if my cam works, lol. Probably gonna do it tomorrow now...sunny all day....
...rode the bugger illegally around the neighborhood again today too, hee hee...

hey Wolfie,
I'd "pm" you but my "pm" box is full!

so the best thing to do is for you to e-mail me (at [email protected]) your address and I will ship the MC out to ya. hows that sound?

if it goes vroom or boom, I LIKE IT!
