  2. Small side case suggestion

    Vulcan 650 S
    I don't have the SH36s, yet, but I do have lots of pictures of the SH23s installed. If you click my name and select "Media" you'll see quite a few, let me know if you want more. The 23s definitely will not fit a helmet, however mine usually sits on the right side case when not on my head. I'm...
  3. Vulcan S just keeps getting better

    Vulcan 650 S
    It's one damn sexy Husqy!
  4. New guy here

    New Riders
    I think you should e-mail Ivan of Ivan's Performance and convince him that his next project should be the Vulcan S. ;)
  5. I was told about an automatic chain oiler today. Thoughts?

    Vulcan 650 S
    40,000 miles would be awesome! I managed 20,000 out of my first chain, though I must admit I was far too lax in the chain maintenance department, sometimes going a couple thousand miles before cleaning, lubing, and tightening (don't do that, its bad) and only noticed that I was missing about a...
  6. Passenger with saddle bags?

    General Vulcan Talk
    It is most certainly possible, it's just about how comfortable you want your passenger to be and how hard you're willing to push the bike. I've done a decent amount of 2-up mountain rides with my Vulcan S (even a 10 hour round trip to the beach and back, all interstate) it handles it fine IMO...
  7. I was told about an automatic chain oiler today. Thoughts?

    Vulcan 650 S
    I know couple users here have installed one, but couldn't find where they said much about it afterwards. This page may provide a bit of insight, but you may have seen it already as well. https://www.vulcanforums.com/threads/help-to-find-vacuum-spigot-or-hose.298650/#post-3011016
  8. Vulcan S - Slip on exhaust

    Vulcan 650 S
    Unless they started making then differently... you'll have to do a full system swap. The headers are welded onto that massive box that hangs below the bike. MAYBE you can find a exhaust shop that'll cut the headers just shy of the box and weld on a piece that you can put a slip-on on, but I'd...
  9. Texans with Aftermarket Exhaust

    Vulcan 650 S
    Sweet. Thanks for the help everyone. I still have the stock exhaust that came with the bike but wasnt really looking forward to having to swap it back on for no more than a day. Not to mention having to keep up with it to do it again every year. I know what'll be going to the dump before I...
  10. Format

    General Vulcan Talk
    Haha! (y) Believe it or not I actually left the endurance mountain biking world because I got tired of spending motorcycle prices on bikes with only one asshole power (me), but now I'm getting way off topic. Genuinely wasn't trying to be insulting (still not) just saying that change is...
  11. Measuring chain slack

    Vulcan 650 S
    Its possible that the slack wasn't set correctly from the beginning however. I'm not sure if the chain is put on in Thailand or if that's one of the things the dealership does in final assembly. 0.4 inches always seems way too tight for my liking, so I tend to set it around 0.75 inches and...

    Yes, those things that 96% of Americans carry around in their pockets. 81% of which are smartphones. I get it though, change is hard. The research to backup my #'s. https://www.pewresearch.org/internet/fact-sheet/mobile/
  13. Rear LED indicator install

    Vulcan 650 S
    Yep, those are the wires you'll need. I would still suggest taking the fender off and splicing in closer to the plug that's just behind the seat (if your new signals have long enough wires for that) to keep the splice location as much out of any potential water (whether it be rain or just...
  14. Format

    General Vulcan Talk
    I must be alone on this one but I like the change. It took some getting used to, and I do miss being able to see where people are from easily, but now that I've figured out how to navigate around I couldn't imagine going back. It honestly makes other older forums feel like they're based on...
  15. Rear LED indicator install

    Vulcan 650 S
    You'll need to remove the rear fender in order to get to the wiring for the signals. I honestly don't remember how the signals mount up in stock form as that extra rear fender (black plastic and the metal anchor underneath) was thrown out within a week of my initial purchase some 4+ years ago.
  16. OEM Soft Top Case installation

    Vulcan 650 S
    For that matter, the Shad SH23s have a 120 kph (75-ish mph) speed limit and 6 kg (13-ish lbs) weight limit that I have gone well over (at least in weight, only a bit over in speed... while loaded) w/o any problems.
  17. OEM Soft Top Case installation

    Vulcan 650 S
    I've got the OEM solo rack (and a passenger seat, they get swapped out regularly depending on my needs for the day) and can say from experience you can load at least 25 lbs (11-ish kg) on it w/o any problems. Kawi's weight restriction is just them covering their ass.
  18. Pants - a newer thread question

    Vulcan 650 S
    Thanks for the insight @Sabre-t Good to hear you made it out of the second accident w/o harm, especially considering the location, I've always been told that help is a minimum hour away out there. I assumed it was the Kevlar that was responsible for it calling for no tumble dry, but never...
  19. Texans with Aftermarket Exhaust

    Vulcan 650 S
    Yea I was concerned about the noise. Worst case scenario I could throw the stock exhaust back on for the inspection and then swap it back out immediately after.
  20. Texans with Aftermarket Exhaust

    Vulcan 650 S
    So here in about a week I'll be leaving home and moving to Texas. I hear ya'll have vehicle inspections there, something we don't have in South Carolina. My question is, have any of you had any problems passing inspection with an aftermarket exhaust installed? I've got a Delkevic 21" Bullnose...
