Question about kawasaki VN 1500 Vulcan Classic Tourer Motorcycles

1 Answer

2005 kawasaki 1600 vulcan nomad kickstand spring has fallen off due to galled and worn shoulder bolt (which fastens it to the frame). Also the cast metal piece that the kickstand (clevis) attaches to is worn and adds a lot of slop and looseness in addition to the shoulder bolt problem. I will replace the bolt and nut but,the only solution I can think of to repair this worn cast piece is to add weld material to replace the worn metal and then grind it back to it's original dimensions. Your thoughts would be appreciated. Thank you, Mike

Bummer on the problem. Would it be possible to add a spacer ( washer ), to kill the unwanted space? Any chance that pinching the end of the side stand closed a bit would tighten things up? Other than that, your idea is about all that is left other than a new frame. I suggest the new frame since they only cost $1350.00. Smile, only kidding.
