I'm curious....do you think if it is fuel injected and sat for two years it won't need any work?idk imthinking this bike im looking at is a vulcan 800. If I get look at it in the daylight that will help alot. my main concern is that it has sat for almost 2 years and if it's carbed it's gonna need some work. plus it's been putside in the weather!(rain, and snow!)
the frames from the carb'd and FI'd models are different too, they would've had to find a bunch of frames too? but its probably the reason?IIRC:
The 1500 series Vulcan's, the Vulcan 88's aka BUBF, Classics, Nomads, Mean Streaks and Drifters were never chain drive. As for when they were carb'd, well, the 88's were always carb'd, the Drifter was always FI and I'm not sure if the early Mean Streaks were carb'd or FI, I'm fairly certain they were always FI. Nomads and Classics were all carb'd till about 2000/2001 then FI was an option till 2003 when the Classics were all carb'd then, since 2005 the Classic is always FI. Since 2001, the Nomad has been FI only.
Yeah, hard to figure out why Kawasaki has been psycho with the 1500 fuel delivery system. My guess is they found a bunch of carbs in late 2002 they didn't know they had and wanted to get rid of them. Hence the re-introduction of the carb-only 1500 Classic for 2003 and 2004.
