I just got to know that the only Kawasaki dealer we have here, normally is very weak on stocking parts even like fast consumable items as filters, spark plugs etc. etc. While talking with another fellow Kawasaki Vulcan rider he told me that he usually stock such items when he travels like one or two pieces depending on usage and need.

Therefore, can someone advise what is normally needed for continuously needs changing to ensure safe ride and good maintenance. Also a place that ships international and reasonably priced.

I found this item on eBay, shipment though is high at USD 44 USPS.

Thanks in advance.

You can also run a Purolator PL14612 oil filter on the bike, much cheaper and a good filter based on the research I've done. These are easy to find at most auto parts stores.

your dealer should have a website, and on that website you can purchase oem products for your specific bike and have them shipped to the dealer for free for you to pick up.

I'm not sure if you are talking about parts to carry with you on a trip, or parts to stock up on in your home workshop.

I don't carry any parts with me on a trip, but I make sure that everything is ready for the trip. If the trip is of a length that would require me to have to change a tire on the trip I will change it before the trip. Same with oil change, spark plugs, etc

If a part is in stock at a distributor, my dealer can get the part the next day.
