Question about 2003 kawasaki VN 1500 Vulcan Classic Tourer - Fi
I have a 2003 1500 Vulcan Classic that has less than 13,000 miles and it is fowling the two rear plugs that they have to be changed every 100 miles. Has anyone every had this kind of a problem. I guess is I would like to know how much trouble is it to remove the engine so I can have a top end done. It looks like the entire frame has to come apart because there is no room to unbolt it and raise it up because it hits the frame. Any help I could get would be greatly appreciated
Perform a leakdown or compression test on the bike before you go to the expense of a top end rebuild. You may find it is something as simple as the rear cylinder not firing properly or perhaps fuel mixture to that cylinder is not correct.
Post a picture of the plugs that are fouling. Are the ignition wires crossed back there? Both plugs may not fire at the same instant, some dual plug setups fire slightly apart (although I can't think of a way that would cause severe fouling like you describe.)
