  1. How Long Have You Owned A Vulcan?

    General Vulcan Talk
    3 weeks. ;) Vulcan 900 Custom with Hard-Krome matte black exhaust. I'm a new rider, and hadn't ridden (dirt bike) since I was 15. 54 now. I do not regret getting the Vulcan 900 at all. As a new rider she was very easy to ride and learn on. After 3 weeks, feels like I have been riding her...
  2. Gas gauge fix

    Vulcan 900
    I did the mod today, by means of soldering the resistor to the back of the PCBA. Seems to be working well, as the gauge has been reading below "E" for a couple days (~50 miles of driving), with some fuel still left. If I measure the depth of gasoline in the tank with a paint stirrer, I see...
  3. Gas gauge fix

    Vulcan 900
    Just an FYI to all: you can easily use a 261 ohm resistor from a place like Mouser or DigiKey. Below is a link to a 261 OHM, 1%, 1/4W resistor. You do not need a 1/2 watt resistor. A 1/8th or 1/4 W is fine for this application. There are plenty of these 261 ohm components available: HERE CMOS

    Bingo. Thank you. CMOS
  5. I need the actual tool BOX for my Vulcan 900

    General Vulcan Talk
    Howdy All, I recently bought a very clean 2008 Vulcan 900 Custom, however it did not come with the Tool Box, that normally sits on top of the battery box. I can't seem to find anywhere to get this thing. Any suggestions? To be clear, I need the tool BOX, not the Tool Kit. CMOS
  6. Wanting to buy a 2016 Kawasaki Vulcan Custom 900.

    Vulcan 900
    OP, Nothing at all against "Sturke's" reply above at all, however do consider this: What type of driving will you be doing on this bike? Highway cruising over long distances at speeds of 70+ for long rides? Shorter drives locally at 55-65 MPH for shorter distances? I bring this up so that...

    IIRC you got this fixed, right? Bad plug? CMOS
  8. 03 Vulcan 800 starts but won't stay running

    At this point you have no other choice but to start tearing things down and cleaning, including those fuel lines. Is there a fuel filter anywhere in your fuel line? Pull carb again, rinse (or replace) fuel lines. Fuel filter?

    That bike looks clean. Is that Carb'd, or FI? I just got an 08 for a very nice price. CMOS
  10. Wanting to buy a 2016 Kawasaki Vulcan Custom 900.

    Vulcan 900
    My experience with a 900 is almost word for word as above. I'm a new rider, fresh out of the MTC. Bought a Vulcan 900 Custom and thus far (one week on the bike) I'm very happy. She handles very well. You will easily be able to grow into this bike. For now I only ride in my neighborhood...

  12. rear shock adjustment tool

    Vulcan 900
    Thanks for the explanation @Du-Rron. That's what I needed. I do have a Clymer's manual. CMOS

    Vulcan 900
    @SteveJB Steve, are all 3 of the above part numbers needed to adjust the rear shock? CMOS
  14. Look what followed me home . . . .

    Vulcan 900
    That's my guess also. I have an email into them asking about it. I did find a part number stamped on the back side of the pipes, close to the cylinder head. Had to use a small mirror to find it. These look just like HK's American Classic II Black 2.5" pipes. It looks like these are...

    Yes, I do like the Clymer's manual. It has both general maintenance and troubleshooting sections. Well worth the cost. Other than doing a Google search for your symptoms, I don't know of any specific online resources. CMOS

    Can someone please tell me what each of these 3 items are exactly? I have no tools and would like to know what these are before ordering. Thanks for any help. CMOS

    Howdy All, Just joined this site a few weeks ago, as a new rider. I was not planning on buying a bike for about 6 months, however this one came up, and for the price I couldn't pass it up. 2008 Custom 900 with 11K miles, one owner. They said it has a Cobra exhaust however when I visit the...
