Question about 2009 kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Voyager
I have a 2003 Kawasaki Voyager XII. It started to make a lifter type noise on the right side. It happens at any condition. But isn't consistent. It comes and goes. @
Hi, Poodle23 I would love to help you with your engine or chassis noise but I just loaned my brand new pair of listening ears to your local dealer's chief technician so he could take your bike for a test ride and give you his professional opinion and estimate about your noise and repair cost. If you are a little short on "DRACHMA" and a Dealership is not on your list of fun places to visit then perhaps the list below will help soothe your worried mind so you can make an informed decision.
3. Brake Rotors---BUZZ
4. Cam Chains---CLICKIT
7. Fairing Panels---WHISTLE
9. Fronk Forks---Plunk
10. Fuel pumps---WHIRR
12. Head Gasket---HISS
13. Hydraulic Lifters---TAP
14. Instrument Clusters---BUZZING
15. Kick Starter---GRINDS

SOURCE: lifter adjustment
IF I recall correctly, the Kawasaki valves are adjusted by shims as opposed to a lock-down screw or hydraulic lifters. The shims come in different thicknesses. As the valve parts wear, a change in shims is how the valves are adjusted.

If the bike runs buy some Seafoam and add some to your gas. This works REAL well. I have a Kawasaki KLR650 and I swear by the stuff!
