Hello Community,

I recently bought the Kawasaki Vulcan S 650 and would like to have some recommendations from experienced peoples.

What is your recommendation after buying the Vulcan s? Any changes need to be made to make it easier.

Also, if there are any riders from Rheinland-Palantine, Germany here. Leave a message. Would love to go on trips.

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum from North Carolina. Congratulations on your new ride. The S model is pretty popular here and well liked. I think most common changes are the exhaust. The Booster plug modification gets a lot of conversation. Do some forum searches for reading and opinions. Thanks again for becoming a member. Be well and Ride Safely.

Also wanted to mention there is a link at the bottom of the page of this link for a factory repair manual.

Welcome from Kennesaw GA!

My recommendation is always to ride it for a couple of months before doing anything to it. That way you can figure out how it feels and what's most important.
Had the same thought. I am currently loving it as it is but this is also my forst motorcycle, maybe i picked few things in the meantime. Thanks for the tip

Welcome from Pennsylvania and congratulations on the awesome bike! I agree with minimal modifications for a few months however I am a big advocate of crash bars as they do add a degree of safety to both you and the bike in the event of a tip over.

I personally have puig and they look great though slightly difficult to install particularly on the left side of bike, just tight clearances to work with. I have heard good reviews on the r&g bars along with being less difficult to install and also look pretty good.

Welcome from Ontario, Canada - I agree, crash bars are a great addition, one of the first things I am adding to my 900. Safe Riding !
