SOURCE: Any way to adjust the rear shocks on a 1996 vulcan 1500-a10 ?

dear susan shock adjustment for the rear shock are done with c wrench. you will notice at the top of the shocks there is a ring with 3 adjustment cams. the wrench is placed in the two holes you see on the shock opposite each other this is where the wrench fits you simply turn either direction for softer or harder ride. this adjustment puts more or less tension on the spring. i own a 96 vulcan as well hope this will help you jim

I have a 2003 Kawasaki en 500 looking for front forks have found forks but not the same year wanted to know if the 2002 forks would fit


Hi, Anthonyri303 after careful deliberation 4 out 5 Kawasaki Gods give this one a thumbs up, but just to be on the safe side you should give your local dealer's parts/service department a call to confirm.

2008 kawasaki Vulcan 500 LTD will not turn over


Hi, Mike before testing any electrical component in the Starting System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter have failed or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
14. Check for engine trouble codes.

Tightening primary chain on kawasaki vulcan


You probably want to adjust your cam drive chain. It's the only one that can be adjusted. They are all different but the adjuster is located on the back side of the cylinder but find out how to adjust your particular model before messing with it.

CAM CHAIN ADJUSTMENT FOR 1999 KAWASAKI MOTORCYCLE VULCAN 800 CLASSIC


Your unit comes with automatic cam chain tensioners for each cylinder, sometimes they get stuck or just wear out, you can try taking it off and reinstall it, a lot of time thats all it takes. If the noise is still there then I would replace it, its just two bolts holding it on.

Have a 2008 kawasaki 1500 with excessive noises from rear lifters, also noises cam chain slap, my mechanic keeps telling its normal. thanks


YOUR MECHANIC IS SOMEWHAT RIGHT TO AN EXTENT. KAWA 1500'S ARE CHARACTERISTICALLY NOISY IN THE VALVETRAIN! BEEN AROUND THEM SINCE THEY WERE BORN. NOW IF YOURS IS PARTICULARLY NOISY, HAVE THE MECHANIC CHECK THE VALVETRAIN AND CAM CHAIN TENSIONERS FOR PROPER ADJUSTMENTS. THIS IS CRITICAL FOR THE LIFE OF THE ENGINE!
