Welcome. If it is the cam chain tensioners, you need to do something about it quickly, before it causes a lot of internal engine damage. Do the Grambo trick, if that quiets it down, then go ahead and order the TOC manual tensioners. I have had them for over 40,000 miles, they are without a doubt the best thing I've ever done for my bike.
Couldn't help but notice, ANOTHER 1986. It is hard to believe how many 1986 models they made compared to other years, and how long they have survived. The '86 models must have been the best year for the VN750, I have an '02, and I doubt there will be any of them still around after that long. My '02 developed cam chain tensioner problems in less than 15,000 miles.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
