Hi, Jeff I would love to help you with your engine or chassis noise but I just loaned my brand new pair of listening ears to your local dealer's chief technician so he could take your bike for a test ride and give you his professional opinion and estimate about your noise and repair cost. If you are a little short on "DRACHMA" and a Dealership is not on your list of fun places to visit then perhaps the list below will help soothe your worried mind so you can make an informed decision.
1. Bearings---SCREECH
2. Belts---CHIRP
3. Brake Rotors---BUZZ
4. Chains---RATTLE
5. Clutches---CHATTER
6. Cylinders---PING
7. Fairing Panels---WHISTLE
8. Fronk Forks---Plunk
9. Gears---WHINE
10. Head Gasket---HISS
11. Hydraulic Lifters---TAP
12. Pistons---SLAP
13. Rear Shocks---SQUEAK
14. Shifting Trans---CLUNK

2005 kawasaki vulcan classic 800 oil type


Owner's manual should have it, If not You can go to a retailer with a power sports lookup input make, model, size and year.
And you will receive recommendations for use in your climate.
Call the service department at your dealer to book an oil change and ask for an estimate, chances are they will mention the type of oil used or options available for your model.
I know Amsoil products, and I know they have a power sports oil/product look up search engine, what you buy is up to you, but it will give you the type and viscosity for yours.

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.

2005 Kawi 750 Vulcan, 2500 miles. If I don't shut


Yes you have two float bowls, the carbs on your model is actually one set but they split in half, there is a needle and seat in each chamber and I would say that you likely have something caught in the needle and seats. I attached a diaphragm.

Engine whinning


I had the same problem on my 2005 Envoy. Turned out to be the idler pulley bearing. It is just a pulley the belt rides on. The bearing in the pulley was what was making the high pitched whine. I replaced the bearing, and the noise went away.

Oil


According to the Kawasaki site you should use SE class SAE 10W40, 10W50, 20W40 or 20W50 oil for the engine. You use SAE 10W oil for the front fork.
