  1. Newbies really do need to realize this this

    Main Lobby
    My personal opinion is that it really depends on the person. My first street bike was a GPZ-1100 which I rode for a year and never had any problems with it. I did downsize to a 550 a year later for insurance benifits, but I think I respected the 550 less and had more close calls with it since...
  2. Is there a good Vulcan 500 forum?

    Kawasaki Cruisers
    Kawasaki sells several accesories for the 500, including sadle bags. See http://www.buykawasaki.com/Default.asp?strContentURL=site/PCProductCatalog/PCCatItems.asp?intCatalogID=1&CatalogTypeID=4&ProductTypeID=63&ModelMarketingId=217 Scott

    Did you enjoy the couse? I have mine scheduled in June. Getting in the course here in PA is hard to do. The phone lines opened at 8:00am, I got through (after dialing over and over non stop) at 8:47am, and there was only 1 slot left at the location I was signing up for. The course if free...
  4. Motorcycle Jack + Vulcan 500

    The Mechanics Corner
    I was able to sell that jack to a friend for his quad, and I ordered another one that comes with an adapter from http://www.motorcyclejacks.com. I called the guy there and he said he was 99% certain that the MAL-2 with the universal adapter would be able to lift the vulcan. The jack is due to...
  5. Motorcycle Jack + Vulcan 500

    The Mechanics Corner
    I just purchased a standard motorcycle jack at the local auto parts store for my Vulcan 500. The problem is that the Vulcan's exhaust system hangs below the frame so it doesn't seem that the jack will work. I figured a jack would make it alot easier to lube the chain as well as perform other...

    Ditto. It doesn't matter to me if they're on a HD, sportbike, cruiser, etc.. I usually get waves from most of the Harley guys around here.

    I have never named any of my bikes... I actually have never really thought about it... :)
  11. Under your Helmet

    Riding Gear
    I don't use them when I ride. My bike is very quiet, but I do use them when I fly. They should stay in under a helmet I would think, and you can get them with a strap too that keep them around your neck. There are others too. Go back to Sporty's main page and search on "ear plugs" and you...

    Also see Sporty's Pilot shop for a selection of ear plugs. The sonic ear plugs work well. http://www.sportys.com/acb/showdetl.cfm?&did=19&product_id=1438 Scott

  14. Brand New Vulcan 500

    Main Lobby
    Thank you all... Matt, I love the bike, and have put 350 miles on it so far. I am looking forward to the 500 mile mark. I will bring it in for the maintenance at that point and start working on the next 500 miles. The bike runs great and I can tell it has plenty of power. Even with the rpm...

    Main Lobby
    About the bike: I just picked up my new Vulcan 500 this morning, and rode it 100 miles today... mostly on the back roads out in the countryside. The weather was absolutely great and a perfect day for starting in on my break-in miles. About Me: I live in western Pennsylvania and have been...
  16. Brand New Kawasaki 500ltd

    Kawasaki Cruisers
    Hello all. I have been away from Street riding for about 18 years, and recently decided on a new Vulcan 500 to get back to it. I formerly owned a 1983 GPZ-1100 and then sold it and got an '84 Yamaha Seca 550 (Much cheaper insurance for a 19 year old). I more recently have ridden off-road on...
