Can you help me with following ..I did some random search within forum but could not find answer...
Just bought a 2007 Vulcan 900 custom yesterday with 5K miles (All stock). I did not test drive it before buying; There was no mechanical/engine problem (as stated by seller)..
I started it today and felt strong gas smell (during initial 5 min idling ), there's no excessive smoke from exhaust though...There was some water (which I think is ok), I drove around neighborhood and did not feel any thing unusual...although there was some click from engine head when it was idling (kind of same click you hear when engine is cooling down after tunrning off bike)..the clicks were random and usually 1 or 2 / min.
However, I still felt gas smell when i parked it after 5 min riding... so, the ques is that if it's normal for kawasaki's?
I previously owned honda 250cc back in school days and did not recall such thing with it..
also, how frequent coolant flush is required? I'm thinking to get oil/filter changed since it was done 2k mile ago (last summer)..but should i get coolant flushed too?
Is there any easy way to check if carb or fuel injection system is causing this gas smell?
thanks for your help..looking forward to learn more about it in coming days
