Question about kawasaki VN 750 Vulcan Motorcycles

1 Answer

I have a Vulcan 750 and I can't get the deep spark plugs out. Seems that the previous owner put 3/4" plugs in. My 5/8" socket doesn't catch and a 3/4" socket will not go all the way in. Not sure how to get the plug out.

Have you tried a 3/4" deep socket? With spark plugs, you should be using a spark plug socket which has rubber inside to protect the porcelain on the spark plug from being damaged. So if you use a regular deep socket be careful not to twist the socket sideways. Replace spark plugs with proper plugs.

Socket on spark plug

Some Japanese cars require an extra thin spark plug socket to get deep enough around the plug itself.
If your socket is normal, then try searching for a thinner socket.

2002 kawasaki VN 750 Vulcan hard to start when cold

Hi, Gd2bbahun I would take it back to the dealer and have them fix it properly or ask for a refund and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.
2. Fuel filter clogged.
3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.
4. Vacuum line from the petcock to intake manifold cracked.
5. Float needle and seat sticking.
6. Float level too low.
7. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
8. Idle adjusting screw set too low.
9. Air/fuel mixture screw set too lean.
10. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.
11. Slow fuel jet clogged.
12. Faulty fuel pump.

My 750 vulcan will crank but when I give it gas it goes dead. I changed spark plugs and gas. It doesn't seem to help.

I would check the fuel flow and the timing to make sure that your not getting to much fuel and that you are getting spark at the correct time.

You will have to clean the carbs, it seems theres fuel (gas) starvation at those rpms., maybe the carb float chamber is low on gas,try to reset the float level, blow the main jets too.

How do i change the wires and plug wires om my taurus?

Follow the wires from your ignition coil (located at the drivers side of the engine) to the spark plugs. Unplug these wires. Using a 5/8" sprak plug socket (deep well with a bit of rubber at the bottom to protect the union of the wire to the plug), unthread the spark plugs. Place new plugs in the cylinder heads (you can use a thread protector available at the counter of most auto parts stores). Plug your new wires into the newly installed new spark plugs. The ignition coil has a diagram telling you which port is for which cylinder. On the V-6 3.0L Vulcan engine the rear bank from left to right is 1-2-3 and the front bank from left to right is 4-5-6. There you have it.
