I just bought a 2003 Vulcan 1600 Classic and it's going to need new tires soon. Does anybody know how wide a tire can I fit on the rear wheel without it rubbing?
My son laid down his vulcan 900 and I get the joy of fixing it. Anyway the forks look good, but when riding straight handle bars and top triple tree are pointed a little to the right. I have been trying to adjust it. Does anyone know if I need to 1) loosen the steering gear on the top triple...
I am thinking about changing my stock pipes to Cobra pipes. Do I need to have the fuel management install to run it? I found a used one in good condition for $280 to my door. Is this a good price?
I'm looking at hard bags for the V2K. There's a huge price difference between the Tsukayu and the Mutazu bags.
Is there a quality difference to go with that?
Any other bags to consider?
...and I'll edit to add, for the V2K, "Strong" or "Jumbo Strong". Anybody pics?
Long time since I have been on here. Hope your all well. Ever since I started riding I have loved the look of the King and Queen seats on Harley FXSTC and I am getting ready to change to the Britt Rear Fender that everyone seems to have done so I would like to change the seat as...
Well as stated it doesn't work. I replaced the bulb and no flash. The switch clicks and the front one still flashes. I have an extra turn signal laying around to try but thought I'd ask first before I start taking things apart. Not even sure if thats the issue. Did a search on here and couldn't...
Here's some pics of my wife's 1500 that we just did the air kit/processor/dyno on. We put the flame decals (which are also night reflective) on yesterday to go with the flame air cover and flame highway pegs. I have some flame floorboards that I bought her for her bday next week I'll put on too. As...
I took the panel of the side of the engine that covers the front sproket in order to put a new chain on it. The clutch rod came out some and now I cant get it back in all the way. Theres no pressure on the rod so its not engaging at all. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Hello everyone, I am getting ready to do the grampsizing mod once my jets and needle comes in and I have a couple questions.
1. For the crankcase vent line, is this what I am supposed to do: Follow the line from the backplate to its origin, then unplug and route new hose with a filter at the...
In my Clymer manual it has the recommended gap setting as .031-.035
I pulled my plugs and they were all narrowly .031- closer to .030.
I gapped them all to .034 and put them back in. All seem to be I good condition; ceramic good, tips have slight brown cover and black around the base. All...
Ok, I went to do a service look around on my bike last night an noticed that my coolant res tank was showing down close to the low mark. I slid the tank back just far enough to add some fluid and was surprised to be greeted with a completely full radiator. So, if where I look in the fill cap is...
Just bought a 1985 LTD1100 and when I got home the starter wouldnt crank the bike over (after 25 miles of riding and only one vigorous romp), and it made a metallic clunk, then when it did start the bike it seemed like the bendix of the starter was staying engaged as there was an additional rattle...
I am looking for suggestions on a radio for my 2006 Vulcan 1600 Classic. I have seen pricing from $700+ down to $35. I don't want to spend 700 but I want something that sounds good and doesn't look bad. Thanks!
Hey guys, I bought an '02 Mean Streak about a little over a week ago and I've been riding every chance I get but I have a question. The throttle response is very abrupt right at the inception point and it seems like it's either "there" or it's not with very little in-between.
Using the wagner h4 bp1210 When this bulb goes out is there no light at all meaning high or low Mine quit working and it had no light at all shoulnt the low or high work if one of them burns out so you are not left without any light
Either I kicked up a stone or something happened internally, but the belt wore when I rode about 100 miles today. I heard a high pitch when getting on the highway and then it went away. The noise went away becuase the belt was worn in that spot. Here are some pics.
They say the retail...
I tried to glue an isogrip using permatex spray adhesive but that did not work well, it became loose within a day. What is the best glue for that?
I have a 2007 Kawasaki Nomad and would to browse a service manual. Other than buying one directly from Kawasaki, does anyone know where I can browse one?
Also, would someone suggest the brand of filters and motor oil that is best for this bike?
OK, so I've posted a few times about how Kawi won't be seeing any more of my cash... And they still won't.:mad:
Unfortunately I have friends with taste (in bikes, obviously not friends:oops:), so my buddy wants a V2K with the nacelle headlight. I've started searching dealers, working my way out...
