i have the option to buy an 86 750 with the splines on the shifter shaft stripped.i was wondering if the cases need to be split to replace the shaft?i will probally buy the bike anyway because parts is parts and the tins have been custom painted but if i can fix it and clean it up i might try to turn it around to buy an engine for my shovelhead project.i remember reading a post on here about shifter shaft replacement but can't seem to find it.thanks for any info.:smiley_th

Well, the cheap option is JB Weld until you need to get inside the case again. *shrug*

That's not a bad deal there then Doc. I think with a manual or 2, and roach's videos, you can have her tore down and fixed in no time.

I just bought a 1999 VN 750 with a broken shift shaft. It looks nice and the motor runs good and it was only $350. I'd really appreciate a list of all the parts I will need to fix this shift rod using the upgraded shaft. This is my second VN 750. The first one was a 2005 and I had no problems with it once I got the carbs rebuilt and the petcock replaced. i gave it to my son who is still riding it trouble free. Sounds like many of you guys have been thru this PITA project so I will appreciate any help. Any way to get hold of Roach's videos? Sounds like he did decent job of video-ing this job.
Thanks
