  1. Vulcan 900
    Hello. I have a "new to me" 2008 Vulcan 900 Classic LT that I purchased a few months ago from a dealership. I have put on about 1,000 miles without any issues. Yesterday I started a check on the fluids and overall inspection after putting on the miles. The air filter was very dirty, the oil...
  2. Vulcan 1500
    Greeting everyone, I have a 2001 Kawasaki Vulcan Nomad 1500 with 10,500 miles. Most of the time, the bike runs incredibly smooth, and I have no complaints. However, there are times where the cycle experiences a loss of power to the rear wheel. The loss of power is especially noticeable when...

  4. Oil and Lubrication
    Hey guys!! I have a brand new 2021 Vulcan 900 custom. I am loving it so far, but I am a new rider so I have a ton to learn! I went for a ride this morning, then parked my bike in my driveway since I knew I was going out again later. I found this droplet of oil under a tube on the right side...
  5. Oil and Lubrication
    Update: The dealer ran 500 miles on it and it lost 170cc of oil (8% of it's oil). They've sent this info to Kawasaki and are waiting to see what they suggest. I have a 2019 Vulcan 650 S ABS that I bought new in August 2019. My first service was October of 2019 and nothing seemed amiss. My low...

  7. Vulcan 900
    So there is a 2009 vulcan 900 for sale 2 hours from me, he said he'd take 2800 for it and it's in great condition, garage kept. It has almost 17000 miles on it but he has never had the valves adjusted at the interval.... should I avoid it or go through with it and have the shop do it for me? How...
  8. Vulcan 500
    Hi everyone, so about two weeks ago, I started having issues with my 2007 Vulcan 500. When I give it throttle, it revs up but has a delay in acceleration, and when it DOES accelerate, it's as if it has half the power it should. At higher speeds it handles a little better but it's still sluggish...
  9. Engine Work
    I just picked up a 1992 Kawasaki Vulcan 1500. I replaced the spark plugs and looked at then after about 40 miles of riding and they are covered in oil. The bike also smokes a bit when I am aggressive on the throttle. I’m looking for a rebuild kit for the bike, but with it being 28 years old it’s...
  10. General Vulcan Talk
    Hello all, I recently got into motorcycles and I was working on a 2002 Kawasaki Vulcan 500. It has a brand new battery, new gas, new oil, but when I start the bike. It only idles on full choke and shoots white gas from the tailpipe. Whenever I try to take it to half choke, it dies. I have...
  11. Vulcan 900
    Hi folks! Long story short: one night I've found myself sitting on the bike and the bike itself standing on some steps, somewhere in the town nearby. So the bike was actually stuck on it, to go on moving home I had to push it a bit forward, and thus scratched the bottom of the engine. Well, the...
  12. Vulcan 800
    Hello I just picked up a 2001 Vulcan 800 that needs an engine rebuild. just wondering how much it would cost to do pistons, rods, timing chains and gears and guides, and rear cylinder head. Is there a best place to get parts? How much would a new motor be? Is there anyone who has some of these...
  13. Vulcan 900
    Hello, I own a Vulcan 900 / 2009 (32,000 km). Until December the bike was in South Africa and the previous owner was using Castrol Actevo semi synthetic 10W40. I'm in Tanzania, I can't find this type of oil here. My question is, I want to change the type of oil and I don't know if is better to...
