I have a 99 Kawasaki Vulcan classic one car bike why would the bike flood the back spark plugs and put gas in my air filter been trying to figure it out but I need help


Hi, Brandon my guess is you have a faulty spark plug or spark plug wire/cable or ignition coil or wiring to the coil is corrupt, check the ohm reading on your plug wires/cables for more information about your question and valuable "FREE" downloads that you will need please click on the links below. Good luck and have a nice day.

2001 Vulcan 1500 Classic E. Can I put a wider back tire on and if I can how wide can I go?


talk this over with a bike shop that sells rims and tires
there are several things to consider
ride characteristics change dramatically with different tire widths
legal ramifications of different front and rear tires
real advantages of wider tires as against "looks cool"
costs of new rim and wider tire against standard tires
modification plates for the wider tire
Talk it over with an accredited bike shop and find a person that has real experience and not just a salesman

I have 2005 kawasaki 1500 vulcan fi.the speedometer show 10km off.when driving100km per hour,rely only going 90km.never change tire size.everyhting is oem on my motorcycle. please can you help in any way...


Unfortunately, there is not much you can do. I have ridden identical bikes, same year,same tire, and they all read the speed differently. All you can hope to do is get a tire that runs slightly smaller in diameter than the one you have now. A tire that is perhaps 1/4" to 1/2 " shorter than you have now will probably correct the problem. For example you may have to go from a 110/90 x 19 to a 100/90 x 19. Just changing tire brands in the stock tire size might lower the tire height.

I have a 1998 Kawasaki 1500 Vulcan Classic. I would like to know if an exhaust off a 2001 Vulcan 1500 will fit my bike?


The engines are the same, depending on model of the 2001 if its a classic then I'm sure it will, I would go to Vance & Hines's web site and check there fit on exhaust for a 1998 verses a 2001 you'll probably see that it carrys the same part number.

Should I use Premium or Regular gas in My motorcycle? 1998 Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 Classis.


i use 89, my cbr recommends 91 but i cant really feel a big difference but i do feel a slight power loss when using 86..but it does run fine!
Actually a higher compressive motor should use a lower octane.. it helps it start up easier , also using thinner oils like 5 or 10w will help for easier starting in colder climates. can i get a rating on this one..thanks!

Can a Stock motorcycle seat from a 1998 Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 fit on a 1994 Kawasaki Vulcan?


i,m not sure about kawasaki, but honda change things slightly every 2 years ust enough to make this sort of thing hard to do,,if you can offer one up from a friends bike and see what it needs ,it might mean making some bracket changes,try a motorcycle breaker and see if they can help.

good luck

What are the stock spark plugs for a 1998 Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 Classic?


The stock plug was an NGK-DPR6EA9. However, some bikes had NGK-DPR5EA9 as stock. I would start with the ...6EA9 and then go to the ...5EA9 if a hotter plug is needed.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

1 Answer

The Proper plugs


should be around .30-.35". You most likely have a dirty carb issue which will cause the bike to run poorly at lower RPMs as this is on a different fuel circuit in the carbs, know as the pilot jet. You may be able to run some carb cleaner through them. I recommend seafoam, or chevron techron. Mix according to the instructions on the bottle.

I am about to buy a 1998 vn 1500 kawasaki -


NO theres not. i own this very same bike i have the 99 1500 drifter #0791 last 4 of vin. the only quirk with this bike is the clutch springs. they were weak but if this bike has over around 20k miles you should be good because someone else probally has replaced them, if not its a simple quick repair. but if you have to replace them just upgrade to the mean streak spring they will fit, they are a different part number but they will fit. its an hour and a half job to replace them. i have done about 10 of these in the last few years for customers. if any further questions contact me on here and we can go over this on the phone. i am a kawasaki vulcan nut. i own 2 of these bikes one being the 1500 drifter the other a 02 800 drifter.
