SOURCE: Kawasaki Vulcan VN400 carb diaphragm broken

If you are really stapped on cash napa auto parts has some heavy duty rubber spray. Just spray a thin layer over both sides of the diaphragm to repair any holes/tears and let dry overnight. My diaphragm was going to cost over $110 for one. It will still have full function and be even stronger than stock!

SOURCE: i have a kawasaki kx 500 and it is getting too

Is the fuel running into the engine with it not running? If it is then you will have to remove the carb and clean out the float bowl. Check your float height and clean out the body. If the engine is running fine, you won't have to adjust any screws. If you want to decrease the amount of fuel running through the body then you would have to lower the main jet needle. Thats the one in the slide. Moving the C clip up will decrease the fuel and moving it down will increase the fuel. The large screw on the outside of the carb only moves the slide up and down for idle setting. The small screw at the back is for air movement through the carb for the high idle. The only other adjustments that can be made is changing out the jets for larger or smaller ones. Hope this helps.

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

Hi, Anonymous for this scenario you will need your service manual that has all fastener torque specs and a wiring diagram on the back pages, parts fiche, and owners manual if you can't find the best tool you ever bought for your Kawasaki, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

Carb adjustments?


There are two screws on the carb itself. Those are what you adjust by small turns at a time to get your high side and your low(idle) side. Small flat screwdriver is what you need to use in most cases.

1997 Kawasaki VN 1500 Vulcan Classic how to adjust the air-fuel mixture screw


Hi, Anonymous it should be noted that the "AIR FUEL" mixture screw adjustment "ONLY" manages your idle and has no effect on any other circuit also any intake leaks must be repaired before the A/F adjustment procedure can be performed otherwise you will never obtain a proper idle and you will waste a lot of time chasing the impossible. The A/F mixture screw's purpose is to fine tune the fuel charge entering the combustion chamber. The following applies to both 2 and 4 stroke engines:
1. The mixture screw may be sealed at the factory with a Welch Plug please review the following video for removal.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wAXcksgvDkM
2. The mixture screw manages a range of 3 complete 360-degree counterclockwise turns from the bottom/closed position.
3. The mixture screw should have a spring and o-ring for tension and sealing integrity.
4. Turn the mixture screw clockwise until it gently bottoms out, this makes the fuel charge very lean and the engine should not idle if it does then the pilot/idle jet is too big and needs to be replaced with the next size smaller.
5. Turn the mixture screw 1 and 1/2 turns counterclockwise to establish a baseline for starting the engine.
6. To fine-tune the idle circuit, adjust the mixture screw 1/4 turn in or out to achieve maximum idle RPM, wait 15 seconds between each adjustment for the idle to settle.
7. Never go past 3 full turns out this will make the fuel charge rich, foul plugs, and produce black smoke out of the exhaust, if the engine RPM keeps increasing past 3 turns the pilot/idle jet is too small and needs to be replaced with the next size larger.
8. After achieving maximum idle back out the mixture screw another 1/8 of a turn then adjust the throttle cable idle stop screw to 950-1050 RPM.
9. This procedure works great on 99% of all engines, for the 1% that demand a more robust throttle response on aftermarket monster fuel delivery systems additional tweaking outside the box may be necessary.

My vulcan 500 seems to be running only on one cyclinder when cold, but then runs better once it warms up.


Carb is out of adjustment and also may have gotten something in one of the passages and clogged it.
