You need to take it to a service professional in your area as there is quite a few parts in there that require specialized tools to service them.

How do drain and add fork oil on a 2007 kawasaki vulcan 900 classic?


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.

Im 5'7 at 175lb & will soon own an 08 KTM 530 EXC-R street legal version it sits way to tall for me, what can I do to lower without taking to much away from performance but atleast have two feet on the...


You need to work with a suspension specialist shop to lower your bike. They can take apart the forks and shock and install spacers to limit the travel and make the bike lower. This mod is easily removed in the future if you decide to sell the bike etc.

Try Enduro Engineering or Pro Action There are other local shops that do suspension work... ask around at local shops and the KTM dealer etc.

Im having trouble fixing the front suspension can


This is a pritty specialist job that requires some specialist tools(compressor,rattle gun,impact sockets,etc to name a few) without them you will really struggle.Plus then theres the issue of bleeding the cartridges(i'm assuming that it has upside down forks as you dont give make model Husky mabey?)before setting the fluid levels.
My best advice is don't try this without a workshop manual & the tools I mentioned or you will struggle
Sorry I guess thats not the answer you really wanted to hear.

Adjusting suspension


hi there,,if u can see a air valve on top of the forks, then u can use a bicycle or foot pump to squeeze a bit more air to the fork,, or if there is an adjuster on the fork,ie, a plastic lookin cap with 1 2 3 4 and a arrow on it u can turn that to a comfortable position,, if there is nothing u can see, then u either have not enuff fork oil in each fork leg,,or if there is enuff,, u will need to change the grade of fork oil and replace wots in it,, so id say a more harder grade of oil,, usually there isnt enuff oil in the forks to make it dive into the front wheel,, try topping the oil up,,with about,4or 5 egg cup fulls of oil in each leg,,if nothing has made any difference,, put in another 4 or 5 ,,,any probs on how u put oil in2 the legs ,please do come back in ,and il tell u how 2,, im assuming u do no,, ok ,,cheers
