SOURCE: fuel tank for vulcan 1600 has 2 vent lines, but

There can be especially if you have a California model, I would suggest hooking them both up and then run the lines to there proper place, not sure which model you have but one is likely the drain for the gas cap area, if you don't hook that up you'll have gas dripping on your engine when its hot, probably not a good idea !

Drain fuel tank


Turn fuel petcock to off. Take off fuel line coming from petcock and use that hose, or one the same size, to run from petcock to gas container. (have paper towels or something ready because fuel left trapped in fuel line will leak out even with petcock off). With hose going in container turn petcock to normal "run" position and drain until dry - lean bike side to side to get it all. *Note - it usually drains faster with fuel cap off. Then turn petcock to "reserve" setting and do the same to get the fuel out of reserve partition in tank. Most tanks are only held on by a few bolts at rear and rubber "slide on" knobs at front, so if you remove seat and the few tank bolts you slide tank backwards and it comes off. Then you can do this draining outside / away from anything.

Gas gauge not working on 2007 kawasaki vulcan 1600 motorcycle


Forget the fuel gauge. Find out how far your bike will go on a tank of gas and reset your trip meter each time you refuel. When you have gone about 100 miles, fill up.

I have been trying to start my kawasaki vulcan ..she try but it doesnt happen...i took out the gas line to drain but is not working ..what else i can do?


The line to drain the gas tank or carb? If you have auto shut off fuel valves(vacuum) set the fuel valve to "prime"(or check owners manual about fuel system)
Some bikes need a fully charged battery to start sometimes.
Will the bike fire on starting fluid?
Spark plugs OK?
Can you get a 1/4 " spark at the plug.
Contact me if you need more info.

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.
