SOURCE: Chain

Locate the tensioner locknut on the right-hand cilinder (bottom): -keep the engine idling for about two or three minutes -loosen the locknut about two turnes while idling -the chain tensioner will slide into the proper position -tighten the locknut to secure the tensioner position and stop the engine -repeat every 3000km or 2000mls

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

SOURCE: vt500 c ticking sound. Cam chain tensioners

You have a self adjusting cam chain tensioner. It is sold as an assembly. Take out the complete unit and replace it with a new one. The springs are not bad , the device that keeps the pressure on the tensioner is slipping causing a ticking sound.

Will the cam chain tensioners interchange on a 94 Kawasaki Vulcan 88 1500 with a 98 Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 @


Hi, Robert parts swapping is common with most motorcycles when it comes to interchangeable or compatible parts from one model with another "EXCEPT" for the CDI's they are year-make-model "SPECIFIC" the best thing to do is call your local Dealership Parts Department or a reputable independent shop. If your location is not near a shop then go online and find a parts catalog or "FICHE" and match part numbers depending on your criteria.

A bit noisey in the left side crankcase area


http://www.bikebandit.com/houseofmotorcycles/2000-kawasaki-motorcycle-vulcan-1500-classic-fi-vn1500n1-us/o/m4398#sch61451

This link takes you to a schematic that shows you your timing system (located on the left side)
worn guides or stretched chains cause a constant metallic rubbing noise while a tapping sound that increases in frequency as you accelerate is usually the sound of a valve needing adjustment (clearance). Hope this link helps. Don't forget to vote.

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!

How to set timing.


There are two timing marks on the crank. One is for the front cyclinder and the other is for the rear. When you line the front cylinder mark, the front cam has two horizontal lines that line up across the top of the head. Look at the cam lobes and make sure the exhaust lobes will be the next valves to open. Turn the crank and do the same for the rear cylinder. Make sur you remove the cam chain tensioners first and leave any slack in the chain on the tensioner side when installing them around the cams.
