I used to have an '84 Goldwing Aspencade. Great bikes. But they are a LOT easier to work on than a Vulcan 750, there is plenty of information available for them, as well as parts. The Vulcan engine is far more complicated than the Goldwing engine, new Kawasaki parts are to expensive to make them economically feasible, and there are no aftermarket parts. You can even still get carb kits for early Goldwings, from JCWhitney of all places. They probably have more support than anything besides a Harley.
You have found the best resource available for help and information on your Vulcan, but don't expect it to be easy.
I'm on my second Vulcan 750, both bought new. I plan on replacing it with some version of the Goldwing when it wears out. A new one is out of the question, but I might get a 1500. I'd really rather have the 4 cylinder model though, if I can find one in good shape by that time.
I just realized you said '85. Isn't that the fuel injected model? If so, have you had any problems with the fuel injection? Jerry.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
