I am new to this forum and new to Motorcycles. I just bought a 96 Vulcan 800 last Friday. I love it but i have a concern that I am hoping someone can help me with. (I have searched the forum and cant find anything related to this)
When looking at the rear of the bike it appears that the...
I've got a lot of little problems!
small oil leak - I recently chanaged the oil and oil filter, but this doesn't seem to have fixed the problem. Someone told me that Vulcan's aren't really leakers and it might be a seal. Anyone know what they might be referring to?
Turn signals - I had to...
Well I've got just shy of 12,000 miles on these Kenda Kruz Tires. They are definitely high mileage and they seem to be wearing nicely. I thought early on that they had an odd wear pattern but I suppose it's just the different looking tread design. I've never felt them slip but can't tell you about...
I've done some searching and either I'm not typing in the right thing or no one has asked yet :)
Do they make crash guards or saddlebag bars for the 900? I've seen em on some bikes and really like the looks of em but can't find em for my 900 LT.
Am I looking for something that doesn't exist?

Could you please help me?
how big of a clunk does everybodyelse's v2k make when shifting gears?
I have a separate tank for my custom paint on the V2K...and a new set of instruments (speedo/odometer display) to go with it. Is mileage data stored separately from the speedo (in a black box?) or is it integral to the speedometer? Will I have a problem switching out speedometers?
So I'm riding home after work earlier. We're having a heat wave this week, so its like 80's-90's, probably not a factor, but mentioning just in case.
Crusing along on the freeway somewheres around 60, and I hear the lould plastic sounding banging noise, as if something flew off the bike and it...
Yesterday I took off to meet some friends who were in WV going to attend "Mountain Fest" in Morgantown.
The big green jalopy and I left the station at 4:10 AM to ride down to Weston, WV where they were staying. We left the motel and proceed to Elkins WV where we picked up Rt 219/250 to head to...
Hey all, I have gone through almost all the sites I can find and made my wish-list, now i was woundering if I can get some of your input, it is an 08 meanie LE(red and black) and i do not want to get to crazy with it but any ideas would be great.
I am currently about to do some serious work on my 2008 900 custom.. I am going to turn it in to a "bobber".. The info Im looking for from you guys is, What is the largest rear tire I can put on her., What is your favorite solo seat., And how can I make my baby really loud with aftermarket exhaust,...
I just had new Avon Cobras put on front and rear. I had 8K on the stock Bridgestones and probably could have gotten another 1-2K but I could not stand the noise the front tire made.
I've only put on about 60 miles on the Cobra's but what a difference. They are smoother and most...
Okay, guys and girls, here's the situation. I am retiring soon...very soon. Two young grandkids in Colorado. Wife not retiring for several months, so I am solo.
From my door in Louisiana to daughter's door on the western slope of Colorado is barely <1300 miles, about 25 hours driving time in...
I was running Purolator Precision filters for years and decided to go with the Pure 1 at 16K and changed to Rotella at the same time. Had always run Mobil in the girl till then. Started worrying about filter clog so I changed the oil and filter after 25oo miles and went with the Wal Mart filter....
I have a problem. I got my Vulcan a couple of weeks ago a 2001 800B with 18K mile on it.
I did about 50 miles, took it in for the 18K service and to have the Petcock replaced (slow leak).
Got the bike back and I've put about 75 miles on it since. Friday night I met a friend for dinner, I'd...
I know there are Kawi riding groups and I sometimes ride with people from Delphi and Kawanow. Having been recently introduced to the Southern Cruisers Riding Club I must admit has been a real pleasure. There are rides scheduled every week and even when my chapter doesn't have one, others do and...
Debaffled my 09 900 custom this weekend, using the instructions on this site. I have one thing to add that helped with clean up. I took a paper grocery bag and tore the top half off. Rolled the top of the bottom half to make a sturdy little trash bag. I put a rock in it to keep it from blowing...
