Greetings all.

Does the right side decorative cover come off by removing the single phillips head screw like the left side cover does? Left side cover removal allows access to the electrical fuse box and connectors. I have tried everything to get the screw out of the right side short of drilling it out. My Vulcan750 is an '89 model so the cover screw may be rusted shut or a previous owner may have lock tighted the thing. Anyway, any information will be appreciated.

TIA

Yes, the right side cover comes off just like the left one. The screw can be VERY hard to remove so you have to make sure you get a big screwdriver or piece of steel that can be used as a screwdriver. Make sure you use some grease on it when you reinstall it. There have been a couple of cases where the screw was cross threaded and would not come out without drilling.

Thanks, I was afraid of that. Is there anything behind that left cover that I will ever need to get at? I hate the idea of drilling it out.


thanks again

VN750 Parts Dept does have the right side screws part #92009-1091 for $2 including parcel post shipping. (Add $3.50 if you want it priority mail)
You can get by without the bottom screw if need be until you get one in, just wire-tie where the screw was.

I got it out without having to drill. I saturated the area as best I could with wd-40 and CLP and let it sit overnight. then blasted it again with wd-40 and tapped the head with a chisel and hammer and it started to turn. I can not believe how stuck that screw was. All clean and shiney now though. thanks for all the help, I appreciate it.
On a side note, the skies were clear and sunny today in the Willamette valley and I got a few hours of riding in. Cold and frosty tonight, but tomorrow looks to be another good day.

Take care, ride safe.
Mike
