1500 Kawasaki Vulcan bottom end bearing failure.

I have '98 1500 Vulcan that has a seized main bearing. I seem to be having a problem locating new bearings for this engine as I live in New Zealand where there are none to be had! Can anyone out there give any information as to where I may obtain these? The faulty bearing has seized, spinning with the crankshaft causing it to spin in the case. Any information is appreciated.

The bearings are not shown in the parts list for the motorcycle. In the U.S. they are avalible under the part number 92028-1477. They are semi-finished and need to be alined honed after installation in the cases.

If the bearing has spun and damaged the cases a salvage se of cases may be the best bet.

I have a rattle coming from my 2001 vulcan 1500.


You need to be really careful-it sounds like a bad bearing-bring it to an independent repair guy who has experience-doing bottom ends you need pro's theres a guy named zimmerman he writes mc books find him in a bookstore or web. it may also be a clutch problem
