Occasionally the tranny on my '99 vulcan (AX4S, 85k miles) thumps when going into gear. I have had enough cars do this to know that if I do nothing it will get a lot worse until the whole trans is shot.

At this point (where it is not a huge thump or a long time searching for gear) will new fluid and filter fix the problem? Is there anything else I can do?

Depends on what you mean. Do you mean it bangs when you shift into gear (r,d,n), or does it bang from 1st to 2nd, etc? If it goes bang into drive, or revers etc. then it's most likely a bad engine or transmission mount. If it bangs the other way, you can try the fluid change, but it may be something else internal, like an accumulator
