Oil in air breather Vulcan 2000 2004 Model

Hi, Greg love that name and the usual suspects are:
1. Oil tank over filled always check your oil level with the engine at normal operating temperature, then try running it halfway between the low and full marks or if you have no dipstick 8 ounces less than recommended or a 1-inch air pocket in the oil tank.
2. Clogged, pinched, bent, or loose breather line/pipe. If your lines run into the air filter try routing them into a tee fitting and then a single line that goes towards the ground into a mini filter that is secured by a zip tie to a lower frame rail.
3. The piston rings are worn passed specifications which can be confirmed by a proper leak down test "OR" the rings were never properly seated during the initial break-in procedure and need to be replaced, this is caused by being too gentle on a new engine. Proper break-in procedures are in your owners manual.

Correct order of replacing rear axle assembly,schematic ?? got an older honda too.Bought with Mechanics book(not chilton) where a good place to get MECHANIC BOOK @ best price for a 2001 Vulcan1500...

The best book is the factory service manual. Chilton and Haynes are lousy, ( in my opinion ). Try your dealer or google 2001 Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 service manual. That gives several sources,; Amazon, ebay, FREE DOWNLOAD? ( 5th listing ) and other sources. tombones49_285.gif

Vulcan1500 will not start

On The vulcan you can access the starter relay directly, you have 2 bolts for the power leads on the back, carefully short the two big bolts with a screw driver, this wil put power directly on the starter bypassing all. If you think that there is a problem maybee with the starter, then 1st remove the starter from the engine and do the same test outside the engine to avoid damage.
i do have starters in stock.

Bike backfires,dies,restarts runs fine

your carbs are dirty. and probably need to be balanced also... bring the bike bto a garage and have them cleaned by a profesional.... also after market pipes don't give your bike the proper back pressure .. that can mess up your carbs timing
