A forum for talk about Kawasaki's line of cruisers.
This Sticky is for specific questions, concerns and feedback pertaining to the the Vulcan 500, 750 and 800 Models.
Thought it was time we had a topic thread for the boys on the Drifters.

I had problems figuring out how to mount my saddle bags yesterday. I purchased a pair of River Road large throw over saddlebags.
I took the front and rear seat off .........no problem.
I installed the support bars. there is a bracket for the rear seat that the rear seat is mounted too. I took...
Anyone know if the chrome fender to bag fillers on a nomad will fit a 2003 1600 classic ? They would look nice with my leather fat chubby bags .
Hey all I'm new to thesite and hope you can help!
I bought a hypercharger with the thunder adapter kit and this thing came with no instructions and trying to get threw to Thunder is an epic ordeal.
so I'm hitting you all up for some help.
I think I have it all figured after I had to re tap...
if so pics please . thanks
Best issue I've seen in a long time. Main story is "Fury vs Raider vs Rocker C. vs Victory Vegas". Tech talk has a full column on "The Dark Side", and a couple of pages of FAQ's on pipe installation. Also a full spread on all the 1700's including the Voyager. Good reading.
more each time I ride it. I got a nice ride in today and it reinforced what a great bike the 900 is. We had a lot of rain the last two weeks so I didn't get much riding in. Today is nice and I just happen to be off work. I also test rode a Fat Bob today as well. That is a nice bike. I had to get...
Just wore a new half helmet for the first time for a trip up the highway a few miles. WOW! The wind is loud! Next time I will wear my ear plugs. I am so used to my full face helmet.
The halves look cool but, but longer trips on the highway I will probably stick with my FF.
...holey crud!! I want TWO AIRHORNS!!! One for each of the pickup trucks that attempted to merge...INTO ME!
I saw the pickup infront and to the side put on blinkers and move at same time. It was close and I was only going to be mildly put out as I could let off throttle and he'd miss me. ...
Can anyone give me an idea what this should cost and what exactly is done? I dont have MOM with me at wrk and was just thinking about it. Thanks guys.
I was at my local Kawasaki dealer yesterday and they had a new 900 custom with cobra exhaust and 230 tire on the stock rim for around $8400.
Heres a link to give ya an idea what it looks like (different dealer and bike)
YouTube - Vulcan 900 Custom 230 Tire...
ok i did the grampasizing on my 800. I had the outter and inner baffels removed. I used a 170 main with stock needle and a 52 pilot jet. I also did the carb slide mod drilling it out to 1/8.
Put the bike all back together with the A/F mix turned out 1 1/2 turns.
Deff can feel the...
Metzeler 880 tires seemed to have a great reputation for while and now I'm hearing about how they wobble etc. What changed? It's seems like Cobras and E3s seem to be the tire of choice. Did the metz 880s design change?
So now that I have your attention, I spent my Memorial Day weekend fabbing up some brackets to MAKE the Raptor sissy bar work. I traded my old stock bars for some sissy bar brackets from v90006, had some 1/2" square bar lying around in the garage, got 4 spacers from Lowes, and lots of welding,...
It was a great riding day yesterday. Rob (Spaceprobe) and I took part in a rideout along the South Coast of England. It turns out that Rob is as decent a bloke in real life as he is on the forum. And his taste in cruiser's is impeccable - exactly the same as mine, apart from some minor differences...
Clean there drive belt on occasion I wash mine with a tooth brush, some simple green, about 4 times a riding season, and inspect it for damage.
Can anyone help me locate my PC III. I have a Thunder Air Kit coming next week and I want to prepare for the install. When I bought my bike, the PC II was already installed. I believe I read on here that they are usually located under the seat but do you have to remove anything under the seat to...
Is anyone watching the 900 custom on American Thunder? This is the first time they featured a metric on the show. They added a few mods like from Kuryakan like the driving light, transformer grips and foot pegs. The show still currently on in my area and they plan on riding it later. I was so...
I was wondering how many of you use a kidney belt or some form of back support and what brand or design you use. Do these things help. I am seriously considering this for my longer rides if they work, but I want to get something that works for actual motorcyclists.
Thanks for the help!
Does anyone have picture of a meanstreak with bags and a shield. Not sure if that how Im gonna wanna go but I want to see what one looks like that way. If you have a pic with one with a sissy bar also that would be great.
thanks a lot
