I own a 1995 Vulcan 1500 with 9400 miles. I am trying to replace the rocker or valve cover gasket on the rear cylinder. The front cylinder was replaced at the dealer last year; however, I wanted to do this gasket myself to save money. I was able to remove the right side rocker chrome case cover( these have to be removed to access the rocker arm cover); however, I am trying to remove the left side rocker chrome case cover bolts( mainly the front). The bolt would hit into the lower part of the upper frame. I physically cannot remove the front bolt as there is no room to remove the bolt. I have been using the Clymer manual (M357-2) for instructions and pictures; however, their pictures show the procedure done with the engine removed from the bike and I am hoping that this does not have to be done to replace a gasket. Can anyone offer me any help to replace this gasket? I am tempted to slot a groove into the chrome rocker case cover to slide the case off as I am able to loosen the two bolts (but not remove them); however, I do not want to do this if it will not enable me to remove the rocker cover to access the gasket. Any information or help will be greatly appreciated.
