Ilya's 2015 Vulcan S Log

Hi all.

So today I became an owner of a brand new left over 2015 green Vulcan S w/out ABS. I probably won't do much to it in 2016, but I do have some plans for it in the future so this thread will be a place for me to keep a history of it for people to use as ideas, etc. and to act as a sort of 'memory' of how it started out and how it ends up.

For big things, yes. I'll do stuff like removing the rear tail and using a universal LED strip for brakes/turn signals that others have done soon though hah. Just need to figure out what to do with the plate.

Don't worry, it won't be stock for very long . That's part of the reason I want to buy it now so I could wrench on it all winter and hit the ground running in the spring.

If you want to hang the plate from the rear axle and you get the locator bracket, get a solid one with the ~7/8" insert to knock down the axle size. I got a generic one for a Harley and the hole was a full 1" and too big. The spacer itself was more expensive than another plate with the adaptor, so I got another assembly (which I ended up using when the first plate relocater broke.

Product alert: axle mount license plate bracket < There's the thread where I mention it.

Like I've heard before: No, you didn't ask....but I volunteered the information anyways =)

Here's a quick snap of the bike from today's ride, as she currently sits. Probably won't do anything until it's stored for the winter and I can take it nice and easy.

Haven't done any mods yet but here is some 'eye candy' for the time being. I have 627 miles on the bike already and had my first service done on Friday.

Finally got around to doing two basic must have mods. Installed some rear spools and a battery tender as I got it ready for winter. Found out my rear stand now clears the rear fender so I'm going to return the R&G tail tidy and leave the stock one as is.

Mine would not clear the fender. Although I got the r&g kit more because I didn't like the looks of the stock fender. Looking good though
