Remove the 2 break bolts that hold the break to the bracket. Remove the pin covers on the side. <2 flat heads> Remove the Alan key pins and old pads will come out. Use a c clamp and a rag to compress the caliper piston. replace break pads pins and pin covers. Re bolt the break to the bracket. pump breaks till stiff. open bleeder. pump twice and close during pump. clean up and enjoy ;D

NO theres not. i own this very same bike i have the 99 1500 drifter #0791 last 4 of vin. the only quirk with this bike is the clutch springs. they were weak but if this bike has over around 20k miles you should be good because someone else probally has replaced them, if not its a simple quick repair. but if you have to replace them just upgrade to the mean streak spring they will fit, they are a different part number but they will fit. its an hour and a half job to replace them. i have done about 10 of these in the last few years for customers. if any further questions contact me on here and we can go over this on the phone. i am a kawasaki vulcan nut. i own 2 of these bikes one being the 1500 drifter the other a 02 800 drifter.

on the bottom chrome band there are like four holes. in your tool kit there is a "thing-a-ma-gidgette" (i call it this because it looks like one, it is actually a "spoke wrench"). the tail of the spoke wrench will fit in the 4 holes Righty tighty so it feels weird: one side you are turning towards the front one side towards the back.

Check the ground wire at the battery, at the negative post at the battery you'll find a smaller (black/yellow) wire, it must be plugged into the main harness, it might have become unplugged, the connections will be right close to the battery.
