Yes it can. At the bottom of the forks there are 2 bolts, one on each side. Take those out, and slowly pump the forks up and down to get the oil out. Not so much routine maintenance, but it does need to be done. Not sure on the timeline tho.
There is a manual you can download on the forum here that goes into detail on how to change the oil, and also on how to pull the rear diff to lube the splines.
I have never replaced the fork oil (or the shocks) on either one of my Vulcan 750s. The first one passed 80,000 miles with no issues, the second is past 70,000. The only time I have ever replaced fork oil if if I had to replace the seals, and many bikes I just rode with leaky seals, and poured a little oil in once in a while. Rebuilding forks is the second hardest job on a motorcycle, next to rebuilding the engine. It doesn't have to be, but that is the way they are designed.
