    I had to take apart my 92 vulcan 1500 to change the piston rings and in the process the rear cylinder head cracked. There is a 96 vulcan 1500 parts bike near me for pretty cheap. I was just wondering if that head would fit on my 92. Thanks!

    I am looking for a set of carbs for my 1996 VN 1500 C-3. OE carbs are $525 apiece if you can find them, and I'm tired of rebuilding the ones I have. Can anyone suggest a direct replacement for these carbs?

    Hey all! Ordering Cobra drag pipes for my 07' 1500 classic. A few things, as this is my first time with a fuel injected ride: *On the install, I'm assuming that I'm also removing the cat converter (dutch bypass?) and that pulling everything off is a bigger pain than the install. Any tips I...

    Saw different options to relocate key and high idle cable. Also options for covering the opening after removing the air filter and cross over tube of my nomad 1500FI. Turned out pretty good if I do say so myself. Made it the same size as the Barron's BAK. Utilize the original mount pluses...
