2001 Kawasaki VN 1500 Oil leaking from right round chrome cover. Manual says this is carburetor cover?

Check that your crankcase oil level is not overfull. Have bike compression tested and check that it is within spec.

2008 kawasaki mean streak uses a quart of oil about every 800 miles. It's has been doing it for a while.

If it is smoking, then your going to need piston rings.

If its leaking the oil, try to located the leak and buy the new gaskets to fix the leak. If its a side cover gasket, or maybe an o-ring on the oil cap or o-ring on the oil filter cover.
Wipe the bike down or wash it down and look for the oil.

Look near the oil filter and see if oil is leaking, i have saw this several times where the oil filter is leaking, and oil blows down the whole underside of the bike.

The only other place the oil can go is in your airbox. Check to see if your engine crankcase breather hose is blowing by way to much oil and soaking your airfilter. If this is the case then you need to change your oil and filter.

Touch up paint for a 84 kawasaki kz550 ltd...kinda purplesih/mauve/redish need name and paint code/ supplier of antiqe paints for motorcycles

If you can find a paint code it can be referenced through color You will probably get better results taking it to the your local paint store and having them use there sun gun to get the exact color of the bike. It basicaly takes an extremely close shot of the paint and then makes a mixture. This helps because the new paint will be closer to the faded color you have now.

Leaking crankshaft seal

The manual on the 750 says put new seals on the crank as you install it, and I believe they have a locating lip on the seal that fits in a groove in the cases. which means a split.

I have trimmed the lip off the seal, and installed them with loctite master gasket, the old seal is hard to remove due to the lip

Need service manual or instruction to fix shifter problem !!!

Obviously you have some bent shift forks. BUMMER! You will have to remove the engine. Strip some of the bottom end down then remove the bottom engine casing. Now comes the fun part. You will need to remove gears and shafts to get to the shift forks. Just make sure that, from beginning to end, you keep all the parts in order. Put them neatly on the bench, left side of shaft to the left on the bench. Installing a shaft end for end is not a good idea.

Let me give you a few places where you should be able to buy a service manual or do a free download of the needed manual.

Google " service manuals kawasaki "
or go to
or try your local library. Often guys will donate manuals to the library.

You might find a free pdf service manual on this site, they have a ton of them.

( You know this is going to cost you a four diamond rating )
Please rate this solution. Thanks gordo!
