RCAZ115 Thanks guys, got them swapped last night!! Now hopefully tomorrow I can get the exhaust finally installed.. any suggestions on how to lift the rear of the bike without a jack? Or maybe even using a car jack?? Last time we tried we rolled the rear tire up onto a brick to gain some room but it was really unstable and prob partly why I broke the first stud since it was so wobbly...Im sure someone knows some tricks...lol

Spockster This repair manual might be the newest version, and a lot easier to use: VN750_Vulcan_Service_Manual_Parts_Catalogue

I found the exhaust gaskets, or at least ones that match, its the manifold gasket I cant seem to get quickly.. Going to try the Kawy dealer but if not Im hoping one of the two I have are reusable!! I figure Ive been riding with no pipes for months now, if the seal isnt great its still better than before...lol

Spockster You're welcome, good luck.

I usually get ebay stuff in 3-4 days, but I think my tractor parts were on the Fed-Ex trucks that flipped on I-64 this week.

RCAZ115 Nice!! Thanks! I'm going to try a couple local shops hopefully get it by sat... otherwise I might go crazy if I have to wait another week to be able to ride!!!!

Spockster They're really not reusable, once crushed they don't usually re-seal very well, but there's always luck if you don't mind doing it again if it fails.

Even your local Kawi dealer will probably have to order that. For the crush ring on the header, some Harley ones will fit. Have seen both on Ebay lately and I've found that's usually the best price for most parts.

Saw 4 header pipe gaskets for $10, that's cheap. Changing search terms can turn up more results.

RCAZ115 Thanks!! Unfortunately broke the stud last night right at the base trying to get it out with a stud remover..... so yea looks like I have to swap the whole thing out... thats my project this weekend, appreciate the manuals.. will definitely download when I get out of work--- any one have any idea where I can get the crush rings without having to order online??? Or would the crush ring between the manifold and engine be reusable?
