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

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.

2002 kawasaki VN 750 Vulcan hard to start when cold

Hi, Gd2bbahun I would take it back to the dealer and have them fix it properly or ask for a refund and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.
2. Fuel filter clogged.
3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.
4. Vacuum line from the petcock to intake manifold cracked.
5. Float needle and seat sticking.
6. Float level too low.
7. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
8. Idle adjusting screw set too low.
9. Air/fuel mixture screw set too lean.
10. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.
11. Slow fuel jet clogged.
12. Faulty fuel pump.

Vulcan 1993 750 backfire issue everytime i let off

This is often caused by an air leak , inlet manifolds, exhaust gaskets into the head or the gaskets between the headers and muffler.
This is assuming all the rest of the bike is set correctly, valve clearances,airfilter, clean carbs

Will not stay running with choke all the way in

either way, or you have to adjust the idle on this carb, or maybe the float in the carb, or the jets are dirty. try doing a clean up on that carb.

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.
