Question about 2001 kawasaki VN 1500 Vulcan Classic Tourer - Fi
I need to kniow what type of oil and weight to use in my 2001 Vulcan Classic 1500 and how many quarts not liters when I do a complete oil & filter change.
Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. If in a hot area like Texas or New Mexico go with 20w50.

Synthetics are great if you use a motorcycle specific oil. I have a 01 1500 classic w/40,000 plus miles using 10-40w Amsoil motorcycle oil. Bike runs much cooler than using conventional oil.
