99 vulcan 1500 I think I over filled with oil. I have ridden about 500 miles and now it seems to be throwing some oil. After about 30 miles or so oil shows up on rightside saddle bag and some on rear...

Hi the thing to do is wash your bike off remove bags and stuff that you can, then take it for a short ride and just look for the area where it is leaking.try not to ride it to fast because oil on a hot motor will blow all over making it hard to determin where it is coming from.

When should I replace the timingbelt on my '02 vulcan classic 1500, it has 90,000 miles

Now is a good time to replace it. Most auto parts stores have the special bar/scoket setup that it takes and then will loan it to you or a small rental charge. It coudl be something you do in the parking lot even though they don't like you do work there.

I have a 1998 kawasaki 1500 classic that runs rich to the point where the fender is turning black. Riders behind say they smell strong odor of unburnt fuel. Bike idles smoothly and does not fog black out...

The easiest way to tell is have a look at the spark plugs and see what colour they are.
The should be a light brown, if black then you are running rich and will need to adjust your carbs.

2002 Suzuki VL1500 Intruder lc fuel tank can i get a larger tank or an extra tank.

Never hear of an after market tank for the intruder, the tank is located under the seat and holds only 3 gallons. You can get aprox 120-130 miles on a tank full.

I have a hyper charger and v&h straight pipes. I can go 100 miles on a fill up and I am on empty. Is there a reserve or is does this sound odd?

Most non fuel injected bikes do have a reserve, under the tank on the fuel valve where the line goes from the tank to the carb..:)
