Other than that, it's just been a color change for the most part. The cams on my 93 are stamped VN700 and the part numbers are the same in the micro fiches for the 85 and 93 cams.

there is a file over in the yahoo section. Dianna or Hyper would be the ones that know where. Is this just general info you are looking for, or are you on a quest?

There was a change in the castings of the motor, cant rember what year I think mid 90's. There was a fin on the motor that moved location when I looked at 2 side by side. dont think any internal change though.

My '99 has one also.
Guess we can add that to the list.

Anyone have anything else we can make more up-to-date ?

This is for the Lurkers out there too !!
Why not make your first post one that contributes to the timeline of the history of the Vulcan 700/750.
Let's get this list complete, now that there aren't going to be any more !:doh:
