Question about 2000 kawasaki VN 1500 Vulcan Classic Tourer Fi

1 Answer

Engine Whistle I have an 05 kawasaki vulcan and when I get it up to speed it starts to make a whistle. If I speed up or let off the gas a little it stops. It gets really noisy when I go up an incline. I have replaced the air filter thinking it was starved for air which seemed to help a little. Any suggestions?

Making whistle noise on off on run and stopping.


There are basically two types of whistle noises.

* Whistle when you get more gas (increase RPM, put gas pedal, sometimes just idling but louder when you put more gas)
This usually intake-side leak.
Intake manifold itself, intake manifold gasket (most likely), even airfilter housing, Airflow meter housing (connector), anything where air goes to engine.
usually engine get rough or unstable idle when intake leak occur.
Engine knocking or pinging may feel.

* Whistle when you decrease RPM (engine brake, reduce speed, sometimes just idling but louder when it dropping RPM)
This usually Vacuum-side leak.
There are many vacuum hoses in engine room. even inside of cabin (heater control, etc)
Try to spot where it coming from.
Vacuum also connected to Brake servo, heater control and spark timing.

Put metal or plastic pipe (small PVC pipe will work fine) to one of your ear then isolate source of noise and find where it come from.

Wait until engine is cool. Check coolant level.

Air pocket is form in the coolant system.

Put car on top of an oil change ramp and slowly add coolant.

It will take 30 to 45 minutes to purge air pocket,

Whistle noise


A whistling noise can be generated by an alternator at high RPM's and indicates a slip ring brush problem or a diode failing . It resembles a frequency whistle.. IT may also be from a leaking gasket and a partially blocked exhaust system from a failed cat converter and at speed and power, the exhaust gas is forced out the hole

When i give my car gas a whistle comes from the engine. It's a high pitch continual sound. When i let off the gas the whistle stops. It sounds like it's coming from the top of the block.70k miles...


Sounds like a vacume leak, chk. for a cracked or broken vacume line or maybe one came off. Does it idle ruff? With it running open hood and listen for a low pitch whistle you may have to rev it up a little.

Problem with sound inside engine kawasaki vulcan 1500 when start


You may be having detonation. Switch to premium gas. Do not use gas with Ethanol. Change to a new spark plug > NGK DP8EA-9. Run through a couple of tanks of gas and see if the problem has gone away.

Gas leak


All gas tanks have a vent to let air in to replace the gas as you use it, ussually in the cap. Most have a one-way valve so air can get in but gas can't get out, you found out why when the bike went horizontal. But if the gas gets hot, it builds a bit of pressure and your vent is leaking slightly. That's the whistle you hear and why the fuel spilled. A new cap should fix it.
