The M/C lever looks the same with a slightly different angle. M/C levers will not interchange but the clutch levers will.

Heads and head gasket are the same, the head has a different part # because of the color. The head gasket is the same part #, you can go to any dealer and order any part for the vn700. I don't know why they had problems finding head gaskets.

Rebel Thanks I'm going to go look at this critter tomorrow so could have some spare parts if anyone needs them the man said there was no title. If I can get it running might try for a title according to it's condition the man said it was in storage since 1992 it's a '85 with 22000 mi. Thanks for the input

hyperbuzzin The wiring harness is different too.
The 700 and early 750's had auto cancelling turnsignals. Trying to just eliminate the auto circuit (IIRC) doesn't work.
