Default 2008 1500FI Vulcan Classic Owners Manual

Somehow I lost my owners manual. I just turned 20,000 miles. I don't want to take it to the stealership for service because I have a friend who owns a motorcycle mechanic shop. My question is: would one of you guys who owns the same bike as me mind letting me know what scheduled maintenance is required at 20,000 miles. I intend to buy a new manual but for now I want to have the scheduled maintenance done before I put it away for the winter. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks

I don't have that model bike but Kawasaki has PDF owners manuals on their web site that are free. Check it out. http://www.kawasaki.com/DefaultFrame...HOWVEHTABS%3d1

2. Spark plug clean and gap.
3. Air suction valve check.
4. Evaporative emission control system (cal) check.
5. Brake/clutch hoses connections check.
6. Brake light switch check.
