So i have exhaust and an air filter, i want to make the bike decently fast if that’s possible, it’s quick stock but i want it noticeably faster. any ideas?
It is not that you can't mod the bike...it just depends on what you want to do to it and how much you want to pay for. A bike like any tool has a specific job for it to be used for. For High Top Speeds, this is the wrong tool. There is no such thing as a shitty tool, just a tool that is not being used for the right job. I can use a hammer to put a screw in a wall but a screw driver will be the much better choice. Just sayin'well i’m glad i bought a piece of shit i can’t mod. it will be traded soon, thanks for the info everyone it was nice being a part of the kawi family but it was short lived for a reason
This is actually my first cruiser, after years and years of sport / adventure bikes. I *love* the twisties (I've posted a number of rides (YouTube) up on the Suches loop, and the Dragon). However, I think the *biggest* detraction from getting on the track w/ a Vulcan S, won't be the speed issue, but rather lean angle and clearance.I've been wanting to take her out to a track day for quite a while now. Not really for the top speed side of things, but I would enjoy being able to get all I can out of the turns. I always hold it back a bit when I ride around the mountains because you never truly know what's around the bend (car stopped, tree down, bears, dump truck load of gravel, etc...)
Maybe I'll get a track suit this year, and a track day next year...
I guess we'll be reading about you before too long. And by the way, I'm not sure what bit of "cruiser" had you confused with "rocket". Good luck, I suppose.well i’m glad i bought a piece of shit i can’t mod. it will be traded soon, thanks for the info everyone it was nice being a part of the kawi family but it was short lived for a reason
Sure you can mod it. Put on a windshield, do a fender delete, add LED turn signals, Change out the stock Headlight bulb for a higher power LED, add a ear deafening exhaust that adds noise but very little HP, put on a Power Commander to compensate for the Super Lean condition you just created. Heck, there is a ton of stuff you can do to the bike. How many miles have you actually put on the bike since you bought it? I assume not very many but I hope you at least test rode the bike a few times to get a feel for it and to see if you actually liked it or not? What do you consider Fast? 0-60 in 4.2 seconds will beat a Mustang GT or Camaro off the line. It won't beat a Hellcat or a Lamborghini but why would that be important? What do you have to prove? The Vulcan S is what it is a small displacement cruiser that is surprisingly nimble in the corners. It's a fun bike that pretty much anyone can ride from short to tall, from beginner to experienced riders. Don't trade something away just because it isn't a 30k Superbike. Bikes aren't as performance mod friendly as cars are. What you start out with is pretty much what you get. Sure minor tweaks can be performed but you can't turn a 650cc Parallel twin into a Mad Max Killer. I am guessing you are pretty young since more mature riders wouldn't dismiss a bike just because it isn't the speed demon that he hoped for.well i’m glad i bought a piece of shit i can’t mod. it will be traded soon, thanks for the info everyone it was nice being a part of the kawi family but it was short lived for a reason
