Question about 2003 kawasaki VN 800 Vulcan Drifter
Warm the engine to ensure maximum oil drainage. Steady the bike on a stand or secure jack, as close to level as possible. Ensure the availability of a pan that can contain at least three litres of oil, with enough extra room to lift and move the pan. Slide the catch pan under the center of the oil pan, and remove the large oil drain plug from the center of the oil pan. If the catch pan is large enough to reach the oil filter, loosen the filter at the same time to allow better flow. Once the oil has finished draining from the plug hole, replace the plug and torque to setting. Remove the oil filter. Apply a film of oil to the gasket of a new filter, and install the new filter as per the manufacturer recommend tightness as listed on the package. Remove the oil filler plug on the left side of the engine case and pour 3 litres of 10W40 or 20W50 (depending on climate). Replace the oil filler plug.

SOURCE: gas tank
I'm pretty sure it does. I own a 1995 Vulcan and I bought a 2003 tank and looked at the mounting brackets and fuel connections all looked to be the same - but don't put this in stone. I haven't been able to put it on yet because it's still out being painted. There should be no difference in the fuel tank mounts from 1996-1005, but as always, check with a professional if this information is critical.

SOURCE: where is the flasher relay
flasher relays are usually located under your seat, never too far from the battery, flick your inicators on, you will hear the clicking sound, the flasher relay makes the sound, trace the sound. if there is not sound, jsut look for a little black bo by the batter it is usually round

The drain plug is located at the center of the bottom of the engine case. Check here for filter options:
I would recommend the longer filters for additional filter element surface, but you should be able to find a quality option at any auto parts store. Double check to make sure the old filter gasket does not stick to the engine case. The capacity is 3 U.S. quarts for a change w/filter, and 2.8 quarts without. Refill at the slotted cap on the left side case- if you do not want to scratch up the cover by using a screwdriver on the cap, find a large washer that fits in the slot tightly and use a screwdriver for leverage to open it. When reinstalling, hand tight is good enough.
