There are 2 bolts at the front of the seat, takeoff the seat, unsrew the bolts. that is the only thing holding it on. push the tank forward a bit, then lift up. there are breather tubes under the tank. be careful, they are difficult to get back on depending on the length. there are 2 bolts at the front of the seat, takeoff the seat, unsrew the bolts. that is the only thing holding it on. push the tank forward a bit, then lift up. there are breather tubes under the tank. be careful, they are difficult to get back on depending on the length.

On a 1999 Vulcan classic, remove the seat by removing the bolts from each side of the seat and lifting up. Remove the waning light cluster from the tank, unplug the gauges and remove the speedo cable. Take the fuel line loose. Remove the bolt at the bottom of the tank, and remove the bolt located under the warning light cover. Lift the tank up, unplug the fuel gauge wiring and 3 tank vents. Tank is ready to be taken off of the bike.

Also be dure to first take off the consolce. You'll find a wiring harness on the front of it, unclip that and pull it away from the console. the bolt holding the console on is at the bottom of the console. oncle that is removed then simply push the thing forward at it will release from the tank.
There are severel lines and breather tubes as stated before, be very careful to pay attention to where they all run and go. Also, upon putting the tank bank on be sure to fully clip on the fuel line to the tank until it clicks into place, you should be able to hear it click. I know this cause I had to take my bike into the shop to get the clutch plate replaced and they didn't fully click that line in and as I was going down the interstate my bike sputtered and then quite on me leaving me on the side of the road for about 30 min until I found the problem. after that it was on the road again.

Where do you fill the coolant in a 1996 kawasaki vulcan classic


Remove the instrument cluster located on the gas tank. There should be one 8mm bolt in the center holing it on. After removing the bolt, gently push the housing forward. Underneath you will see a small reservior with a radiator cap on it.
