I want to change the fork oil in my 07 1600 vulcan classic I have 24k miles on it. Is there an easier way of doing it than the way that is explained in the manuel I used 1600 mean streak because there was no 1600 classic on the list

Hello
There are small drain plugs at the bottom of each fork tube, use a separate container for each fork tube, drain out the oil and set it aside, and then remove the top fork tube cap at the triple clamp, add EXACTLY the same amount of the correct fork oil that you drained out.

Problem with second gear


i will tell u first the easy fix Before you do your next oil change, try adding some SeaFoam to the crankcase and ride for 50 to 100 miles. This should help remove any junk on the clutch plates. I'd also switch to another oil brand and see if it makes any difference.
if it will still do the same:
maybe the engagement dogs on the gears are damaged and probably the shift fork as well. The gears will stay engaged at lower torque but when the torque is great enough it causes them pull apart.
And get the service manual it i help you a lot you can download it from the below link:

If you don't know by looking at the service/workshop manual, take it to a specialist suspension place. You could do more harm than good.

Fork oil capacity for a 2005 kawasaki vn1600 mean streak, Thanks Des from Ireland


Hi Des, Im am Irish too, howya doin? The oil you want is SAE 10W-20. and 445ml if you are changing the oil. It can be more accurately checked with the fork removed and fully compressed and the spring removed, the oil will be 120mm from the top ot the stanchion.
The manual will give you more info on this and any other future problems so here is a link to it. Good luck to ya, and please rate me if I've helped you. Thanks

Second gear jumps had trans replaced once help for bout 1000 mile doing it again what is causing it?


Your mechanic did you no favors. You have a bent shift fork. If the problem was present and was then good for 1000 miles the mechanic removed the fork, bent it back to nearly straight then put it all back together. If he had put in a new fork he would have charged you for it. If he said he could find no problem then how did the problem go away, magic? He probably didn't want to go to the trouble of finding you a new fork since the bike is 13 years old and the dealers wouldn't have the part. The problem will only get worse.

The entire engine comes apart > Head. cam chain, cylinder, flywheel electrics, clutch, oil pump, shifter, gears, shift drum and bad shift fork. This is best done by a dealer. If you try it yourself, be able to put 100 or so parts back together. Go to the site below and take a look in a parts manual. I couldn't find a free service manual for download. Yes, the link says Yamaha but you will change that when on the site.
