Worst case is you buy a new plunger assembly for $44.00 and stick it in yourself. It is not hard and will not affect other carb settings. Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock. www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrandand/parts.aspx I checked and Babbit's has plungers in stock. By looking at the diagram you can see how it all goes together. Is your plunger just loose? See if you can snug it up a bit so it doesn't leak. Now it didn't cost any cash at all!

I don't get paid for my answers but I do take pride in them, and I am only trying to help. So if you will, > > A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

Leaking brake fluid


Sounds like the seals for the disc caliper pistons are shot, and need replacing.

HOWEVER, you didn't say if it was the Front or Rear brake!

So, rear brake:

Front brake:

Where is the fuel filter located for a 2001 kawasaki vulcan 1500 classic


Where is the throttle body throats on a kawasaki vulcan 1500 Fi

The solution is simple. Clean the carbon ring out of the throttle body throats using your choice of scrubber (old toothbrush, Q-Tip etc) and some carb/throttle body cleaner. Hold your throttle all the way open or use your throttle lock to do it while you scrub the ring away. Now, ladies and gentlemen, start your engines! And enjoy a nice smooth idle again. BTW if you turned the idle up so the engine would run you'll probably find it's now idling way too fast. Crank it back down to the recommended 950 (or whatever your owners manual recommends).

Need radator for kawasaki vn 1500 classic tourer 2001 is the driffter the same radator as the vn 1500 classic plz hellllllllllllp


TO ALL VN1500 OWNERS....This once happen to me,
I went to the garage to start the bike "Nothing ""The first thing is the lights are bright but no turning over,Next you think the solenoid is kaput but the answer was very simple and the fix takes 30 seconds..
Do not take the bike to bits looking for other problems and look at the clutch leaver and you will see some wires going into a plastic shroud going into the switch in the clutch leaver, Make sure this has not popped out if its connection as it some times may do after a few years due to constant turning on the handlebars,
When this is not connected you will have a bike that will not fire up but comes alive and you will hear a clicking noise but this is from the engine carb area and every function of the bike will work but it will not turn over, Worth looking at and saves sixteen quid for a starter unit you never needed.
