99 750 Vu

If you compare similarly sold items in the moto world that are 'trick pieces', and also hard to find, around $100 doesn't seem too awfully bad.

I know there's got to be some examples, adapter plates, for engine-trans. As far as I know there's only two places to get the Tux plate, but everyone has trans adapters.

Are you saying you got your cover done today? Cool

Add the correct amount of Seafoam to the present oil if you want to clean out, should be 3oz but double check. I ran 200 miles but I was thinking It had a sticky valve stem.

Yes my own mod is ongoing.

https://www.vn750.com/forum/19-elect...-mod-tips.html

But if successful, I should be able to put the factory cover back on with the factory gasket.
Essentially, it involves removing 1/16" from the mounting holes to accommodate the new plate.
My machinist used 1/8" aluminum instead of 16 ga steel, so I trimmed down the mounting holes on both the main cover and the stator cover to gain 1/8".

I wanted a clean look, and I plan to mess with ignition timing later, so I didn't want to have to re-goop on a gasket every time I pull the cover.


'89 VN750 Bought stock 4/12/18 @ 17805.9 miles $800. Wrecked once. 27454.5+ miles

Completed modifications:
Removed mufflers, straight pipes out of GB. 110/90 Front Tire. Pick-up coil mod. Shindengen MOSFET FH020AA r/r. USB Outlet + Voltmeter. Repainted Metallic Blue w/ new tank bages. Ear Shave (wo/ coasters) 40/140 NO shims 45MPG. MCCT conversion.

Planned modifications:
Custom LED turn signals. Windshield. Highway Pegs. (Possible) ignition adv. Tuxedo Mod. Ignition coil mod.
