If it is just the chrome plated plastic cover, moisture will not get into the speedometer itself. It is a sealed unit. The chrome plastic is just for looks and is not sealed.

...someone correct me if I am in error.

85 - 2006 all the same except:
85 = 700cc --different jugs - heads etc.
85 - 90 (or 91?) Rectangular Master Cylinder
91 & up = Round Master Cylinder (has different lever mount)
All else - - only cosmetic - paint, chrome vs brushed alum. etc.
Only 2003 - 2006 have Chrome Speedo & Tach Bezel Rings

The early models had self canceling turn signals as well. Not sure what years. As far as I know my former '93 and my current '02 had exactly the same instruments

Self canceling signals 86 and 87. 1985-1991 had the prime instead of reserve on the fuel petcock. But as far as gauges go, they are all the same... Dash is different electrical wise between a California model and a non CA bike

Luggage racks are not year dependent.

There are 2 different designs of the VN750 luggage rack. Both fit, but the later one seems to fit better. There have been no changes to the bike where the rack mounts.

Speedos are interchangeable between all years, so any scoot made for the US and CA markets should be fine.
My Canadian bike has none of the exhaust emission junk and the speedo is marked in kilometers instead of miles.

History of the VN700/750 as we know it:
http://www.vn750.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1771&highlight=color+year


Wiring harness is different for early models with self cancelling signals, and for bikes made for sale in Europe.
May be different for bikes made for sale in Pacific Oceania islands too.

Slim, the early model petcocks with the RES, ON and PRIME function were only used for 4 years I believe, 1985 to 88.
No OFF position on the early models. They relied on the vacuum shut off switch to work. :)
My '91 has the newer one with RES, ON and OFF.
