Question about 1997 kawasaki VN 1500 Vulcan Classic
1997 VULCAN CLASSIC WITH NEW CLUTCH SEEMS TO SLIP WHEN I CRANK THE THROTTLE IN ANY GEAR. MECHANIC SAYS THE CLUTCH IS DESIGNED TO DO THAT. IS THERE A REMIDY OR DO I JUST HAVE TO LIVE WITH IT?
Any special oils or lubricants in the gearbox? 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.
If the clutch still slips then go to a different mechanic and have him adjust the clutch. The first guy doesn't know what he is talking about.
