Changing grips on 2003 Kawasaki Nomad 1500fi

I want to change the grips on my 2003 Kawasaki Vulcan Nomad 1500fi. The end cap does not have a screw. I'm afraid to cut off the old grip before I KNOW how the end comes off. How do you get the stock grips off?

2011 Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Nomad excessive oil consumption


Hi, Mike oil consumption is usually caused by a worn out engine with lots of mileage, new engines can also have excessive oil consumption due to improper break in procedures or faulty parts. The general rule of thumb is anything more than 1 quart of oil consumed in 1,000 miles or 1 liter in 1,500 kilometers means it's time for a top end overhaul. The usual suspects are:
1. Piston rings not properly seated (new engines)
2. Piston rings worn past service limits.
3. Damaged cylinder wall or piston.
4. Valves and guides worn past service limits.
5. Valve seals worn out, crushed or no longer attached.
6. Cracked cylinder head.
7. Head gasket failure.
8. Pinched or blocked crankcase breather hose.

How to change org. clutch lever with chrome lever 2001 kawasaki 1500fi nomad


Hi mate if your just changing the actual lever like your question suggests forget the other two answers.
If it is a cable clutch loosen the adjuster at the lever end until the lever is floppy.
Now where the lever is bolted/hinged at the bars this is tje bolt and nut you need to remove, it will more that likely be a 10mm nut on the bottom and either a 10mm bolt or a large flat blade screw driver on top.
Remove this nut and bolt and the lever will come out.
Unhook the cable( if no cable just remove) and remove lever.
Reverse the removal process to reinstall.
Hope this helps

Need radator for kawasaki vn 1500 classic tourer 2001 is the driffter the same radator as the vn 1500 classic plz hellllllllllllp


TO ALL VN1500 OWNERS....This once happen to me,
I went to the garage to start the bike "Nothing ""The first thing is the lights are bright but no turning over,Next you think the solenoid is kaput but the answer was very simple and the fix takes 30 seconds..
Do not take the bike to bits looking for other problems and look at the clutch leaver and you will see some wires going into a plastic shroud going into the switch in the clutch leaver, Make sure this has not popped out if its connection as it some times may do after a few years due to constant turning on the handlebars,
When this is not connected you will have a bike that will not fire up but comes alive and you will hear a clicking noise but this is from the engine carb area and every function of the bike will work but it will not turn over, Worth looking at and saves sixteen quid for a starter unit you never needed.
