Hi, Anonymous the following is a systematic procedure for diagnosing fuel pump issues designed to keep "DRACHMA" to a minimum. If you need parts please check with Amazon and eBay first to keep costs down.
1. If your pump does not turn on check the pump fuse and relay and all wiring including connectors for corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets.
1. Normal fuel pump pressure is 3-5 PSI.
2. Check any rubber or plastic tubing for age-related pinholes by removing and plugging the ends that connect to the fuel valve and then turn on the ignition switch and watch for fuel streams exiting the pinholes, if any exist, replace tubing as necessary.
3. Check for a clogged a primary fuel filter that comes off the bottom of the pump to screen out big rocks and clean as necessary.
4. Check for a clogged secondary fuel filter that's outside if applicable by removing it from the system and replace it with a short splicing tube turn on the ignition switch and recheck fuel pressure if pressure increases to normal pressure you need a new secondary filter.
5. If all the above check out OK and the pump is not functioning properly then you need a new fuel pump.

Now's the overdue time to stabilize your fuel, Buddy!

2001 kawasaki VN... | Answered on Nov 29, 2017


Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. If in a hot area like Texas or New Mexico go with 20w50.

Remove cap from radiator and fill this way, the meaning of the word reservoir remove oir from the end and you are left with the word reserve, the mass of the coolant is located in the radiator, the resovoir holds the coolant that is exsess when the engine is hot and the water has expanded,

2001 kawasaki VN... | Answered on Jan 25, 2016


Yes they should. Compression should be checked with the throttle held open. 110 sounds marginal but may be in spec. You haven't listed your model so I can't check.

2001 kawasaki VN... | Answered on Oct 09, 2015


Start with a compression check to eliminate a bad head gasket.
Drain and flush the cooling system, could have a blockage.
Be sure you check the pressure cap to see if the cooling system is full. DO NOT REMOVE THE CAP ON A HOT ENGINE! The overflow tank is not the place to check if you are having overheating issues.

Remove the seat and loosen the tank to lift it up. the vent hose will be the one attached to the tank. Make sure the hose is not pinched or kinked.

Hi mate if your just changing the actual lever like your question suggests forget the other two answers.
If it is a cable clutch loosen the adjuster at the lever end until the lever is floppy.
Now where the lever is bolted/hinged at the bars this is tje bolt and nut you need to remove, it will more that likely be a 10mm nut on the bottom and either a 10mm bolt or a large flat blade screw driver on top.
Remove this nut and bolt and the lever will come out.
Unhook the cable( if no cable just remove) and remove lever.
Reverse the removal process to reinstall.
Hope this helps

I would go directly off an ignition switched source capable of dealing with the current draw. OR I would use a sealed 30 amp minimum relay using the ignition switched lead to trip the relay and run a fused feed from the battery to the relay to power the lighter. That way you do not pull a lot of current from wires that may not be able to handle it. seal everything watertight or bad things will happen....

FI , im guessing is going to stand for "fuel injection"

If the bike now sounds different it has probably got a problem with the fuel injection somewhere that the computer has picked up.

If the sound of the bike has changed it may have dropped 1 cylinder and that is why it sounds different all of a sudden.

It could be a simple blocked injector or water in the your fuel - a bad batch of fuel will play havoc with the fuel injection system on any vehicle.

When was the last time you bought fuel ? was this problem only after getting new fuel? when was the last time the bike was serviced?

id have the fuel system checked buy someone that knows what they are looking at.

I assume the engine is not seized and the battery is charged and good. Unplug the two small wires going to the starter solenoid and push the starter button . With a voltage meter on the wires from the harness you should have continuity.Reconnect the wires. Push the starter button, if you hear a click from the solenoid, the button is good. Now , jump the two cable posts on the starter solenoid. If the starter works you have a bad solenoid. If you push the starter button and tap on the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works, you need new starter brushes. If anything else in the starter is keeping it from working you need a new starter , the starter parts are probably not available from the manufacturer.

I believe its half inch. Not 100% on this one. Id get online and get specs on Vulcan.

2001 kawasaki VN... | Answered on May 14, 2014


It is more likely to be a problem with the air supply or the ignition system. Check your coils, plugs and air filter. Could also be a blocked fuel filter.
