Found this while browsing. It's a little worrysome.

It looks like Shell is changing the Rotella t6 formulation. Not sure if it'll adversely effect Motorcycle engines but most info I've found seems to say it'll be safe.

It says on the Shell website that it still meets the JASO MA/MA2 requirements for motorcycles.

    Need some help here. Just finished first oil change on the V2K. I mean, not too difficult a task, right? Followed instructions given on here to the letter. Warmed her up, drained old oil top to bottom, replaced filter (that was a bitch), and filled with 5.5 qts rotella t6. Now she won't fire. What I do?!

    Kill switch not off, btw. First thing I checked. I've made that bonehead mistake before. And she won't even turn over when off anyway.

      Top Boxes / Trunks. We are wanting to fit a quality, permanently mounted large top box complete with passenger pad and top mounted chrome luggage rack (preferably with lights) We intend on getting it colour matched to the bike once here at a local panel shop. Before we start looking all over the place and getting confused with choice, thought I'd ask here for advice as no doubt many have done this mod. Any recommendations/links/pic's etc would be gratefully accepted. Thanks in advance.

          Hey guys — Kawasaki Vulcan 2000 VN2000 Rogue owners riders

          Hey guys.

          Does anyone​ have their rear fender taken off at the moment?

          I'd like to know if the wheel sits centered inline with the mud guard towards the engine, and possibly between the fender struts too.

          My wheel is off centre by 6mm to the right relative to everything else that you would think was meant to be centered. I had a small accident last fall where a car pushed me into the ditch pretty roughly, and I suspect that the swing arm may have been bent a little at that incident so that the wheel shifted sideways. My insurance won't fix it, and say that it is supposed to be like that..

          I don't believe them.

          I'm building a custom rear fender at the moment, and it really shows from behind..

          Any help is appreciated. Thanks​!

            Progressive Springs. update — Kawasaki Vulcan 2000 VN2000 Rogue owners riders

            Progressive Springs (update)

            I rode yesterday about 100 miles, a few twistys but mainly flat roads with an occasional uneven spot. I installed Progresive springs with Lucas 10w oil about 18 oz each. I am riding a rather light version if a V2K but I am not so light 265lb, running cobra 230 in rear and metz 888me 130/70 r18 fnt, both at std psi. , both on Britt wheels

            Here is what I observed,

            - The front end is stiffer, noticeably. To me this is good and bad

            - good because I have much more confidence in attacking corners with ease, front end is very accurate and with little "sling-dive" if that is a description. I have very little dive when front braking , so I use my front brakes much more now.

            - bad because I have lost full plushness on my front end. There is a road near me with several minor speed bumps in a row, I used to drive over these feeling nothing in the front end, now that has changed, i do feel vibration but nothing that cannot be tolerated. That goes for most bumps.

            The rear is more adjustable with spring preload and valve dampening adjustments, but the front isn't unless you like doing full front end tear downs to swap out fork oil, naa me neither.

            Bottom line: you cannot have both super plush and performance tuned in the front end of our bikes, For me, I appreciate the sacrifice if losing full plushness for gaining accuracy with minimal dive in braking.

            Just thought you should know before you decide to make the change.

              So last Sunday, my beast let me down for the first time. Stopped at a local place for a couple beers and music and come out and completely dead. Even though I thought battery, and was told that by Bare Carr, but thought it could be something else. So checked all fuses and wires and sure enough battery. Just went totally dead, no lights no clicks. So changed it out today along with new clutch cable and blocked air line on top of intake. Like a new bike again. Man I really love the beast, best bike so far even over my 08 HD Road King Classic.

                I SUCK TERRIBLY at rattle can painting!!!! Just a few plastic pieces I spend all that time sanding and washing and cleaning. Get the all in one Metallic primer and top coat and it goes on well in 3 thin coats. Then the clear coats....OMG, talk about runs on the most visual sides. One good thing I can say....I have Mastered the "Orange Peel" effect!!!!

                Not sure I want to attempt the custom front fender. All that prep work and the clear coat messed it all up. Make me want to take a baseball bat out and smash shit!!!!

                  HELP!!!! Progressive Fork Springs. I broght the forks & new Pro springs to my mechanic a week ago and picked them up tonight and he said he was all confused over the instructions and the 2 guys he talked to at Progressive were of NO help at all.

                  So can someone please tell me what needs to be done. My mechanic was going by the confusing Fork Spring Notes on back page. He's done Pro springs on many bikes before and never had a problem. So there are 2 Pro springs in the box with 2 PVC spacers. Now that is all that goes back into the forks?

                  Do the PVC spacers get cut and to what length? Same length for each fork? (and the OEM spacers are discarded?)

                  Does the same amount of new oil go back in like it says in shop manual? Whatever you all tell me, I will pring out and show to my mechanic tomorrow.

                  Thanks for the help. My mechanic said he didn't want to do something wrong and then it cause me an accident....I can see his point.

                    Gear shift problems... I have just got the bike running after its sat for 4 years with previous owner. Will go into 1st and back into neutral, but the N light has now gone out even when in N. It doesnt seem to want to up the gears at all though, no 2nd 3 rd 4th 5th etc. Should it be able to snick up the gears when not running, like my other bikes, and where to I start to look at for faults. Could it be something simple like the shifter rod length?

                      2017 VRA WEST RALLY

                      So…. For the past 75 months, I been telling you about this VRA West Rally. I’ve been telling you about all the Great People you will meet if you haven’t attended one, and how it’ll be great to see those you’ve meet at the past Rally’s. I’ve told you about the Great Location the Rally are going to be. Apache Gold Casino. I’ve given you the phone number to make your reservations, 1-800-272-2438, and to ask for the Vulcan Riders Rate. I’ve also told you how to register for the Rally by going to www.phoenixvulcanriders.us and clicking the events tab, Oh yea, don’t forget while you are on the website, click the Rally T-shirt tab and order yours. Hey if you can’t attend the Rally, you can still order the shirt and tell you friends you went….. I’ll mail it to you.

                      I didn’t tell you about the fabulous rides we will be going on. You see a lot of people think Arizona is all desert, and flat land, and you would be wrong. We have some of the most beautiful forest on the world…. Ok on the west coast.

                      On Friday you will be seeing one section of what we call the “Rim Country” (See Map)

                      https://www.google.com/…/data=!4m28!4m27!1m5!1m1!1s0x8729a1…

                      On Saturday, We’ll be going to the same area, but to a different location. You’ll get to ride up and down the canyon highway twice, why you ask….. You’ll see.

                      (See Map)

                      https://www.google.com/…/data=!4m28!4m27!1m5!1m1!1s0x8729a1…

                      Sunday….. we’ll just see how you recover from the Saturday Evening Dinner/Party.

                      Oh…… one other thing. We will be having a Special Guest Rider joining us this year. This person is one of the Greats in the Motorcycling World. When I say his name, I stop and pay Homage to the fact I get to ride on the same roads he does. When I think of him, I thank the Kawasaki Gods for allowing me to ride the same brand bike he does. All kidding aside, One Mr. Randy Young will be joining us.

                      So, we you only have 9 day to get the VRA rate at the hotel, after that I have to give the resort a head count for the Saturday Evening Dinner/Party.

                      Get yourself to your computer screen and stop procrastinating about registering, and get it done

                        Fitted this little resistor in place of the EPA unit,as it happens it plugs right into the oem plug. I then put some heat shrink over it and crimped the ended while it was still soft. Used silicon vacuum caps to seal the port on the heads and the air filter and it works fine. Resistor was £2 shipped ($1.60) and the silicon plugs I bought a pack of ten for £10 shipped ($12)

                        So for one bike it cost me under $6 and I didn't have to solder anything so it can go back original at any time. No popping and no FI light on,happy days !!!

                          So Depressed as my Bike is all tore down. Getting most of the chrome powdered coated in a wrinkle gloss sparkle & few in a Jewlery gold. (I HATE CHROME) Those parts should be done any day now.

                          Will be putting on a Hypercharger, 19" Ape hangers, Dobeck fuel controller, Stebel horn, New front tire, HD Progressive fork springs, custom front fender. Hope to get a Batwing (stereo ready) from Tsukayu next week. Removed all the Kawasaki & Vulcan badging.

                          Since money is limited, will have to add more custom parts thru-out the year and most likely new paint next winter.

                          I do have a Cee Bailey like new windshield with all the chrome mounts still on the shield, Mustang leather tank bid up for sale. I tried double darkside and did not like it, so have tires for sale as set (in person pick up is best for those).

                            PROGRESSIVE SPRINGS for front forks. Completed install, took it for a spin, initial thoughts:

                            - front sits higher due to more preload of springs

                            - feels more accurate/predictable if that makes sense

                            - compression and rebound dampening feels great ( used 10w Lucas fork oil) subsequently the rear feels too squishy now)

                            - install was not bad if you have decent mechanical skills, taking caps off and loosening axle bolt toughest challanges

                            - excellent mod reward for $87 $20 for 3 bottles of oil.

                            Thanks Jim Renda for the Ebay add and heckling.

                              Darkside squared now. Mounted a Yokohama envigor 215/60x16 on the back and already had a michilin commander 2 rear mounted on the front. I tried for a couple of hours to get that Yokohama to seat using straps and the air compressor and soapy water. Finally resorted to spraying hair spray into the tire and igniting it. 3rd time worked. Tire doesn't rub and rides as expected, I've worn 2 car tires out on the goldwing. I like it. Little more countersteer needed and I have to lean harder to drag the floorboards, but my tilt warning monitor (the spousal unit) alerts me to excessive lean.

                                Electrical question, regarding the gear position sensor (13151-0032). My bike is a 2009 model.

                                Can someone please explain to me, how does the ECU get feed-back on which gear the bike is at? As showing on the picture, only the neutral position is different from the others. I had expected a resistance bridge or switch combinations - but nothing.

                                      Plugs done, that rear one is a real pig, ended up making a tool to get it out. Whilst it was stripped down, gave the under side of the tank a hit with some rust stop due to a few bits here and there and polished the chrome work.

                                      Found one of the plug caps had lollied its connection to the lead, so repaired that too.

                                      Lubed the de-comp set up to.

                                      Stripped the fuel pump down and cleaned the filter (clean filter shown in pic's) was chocka with all sorts of crap. The build up was that much it had solidified between the pump bowl and the filter, has marked the bottom of the pump bowl as per pic's.

                                      After seeing all that crud I'd highly recommend doing the fuel filter if you have the tank off. Easy to do and could be prevent issues out on the road, surprising how much rubbish accumulates.

                                      The sled starts and runs like a top, the idle is back to a nice even beat. Already for a day on the Tarmac tomorrow.

                                        Well dropped my 07 V2K off at the shop today. We have had some warm days here lately so been riding some and I noticed that I was smelling hot coolant at stops some times. (you all know the smell) Been riding the bike 2 1/2 years and almost 17,000 miles and never had the coolant smell before. I looked were I could see and didn't see anything wet. So waiting to see what they find. Also having the cooling system flushed while it's there as the bike has 29,900 miles on it. I bought it with 13,000 miles on it in September of 2014 so I'm pretty sure the cooling system has never been flushed.

People say there has to be a hex screw that holds them together and remove it.....there is no screw. There is a ball on the shifter rod riding inside a Pinion socket all greased up. I need to powder coat the Shifter...how do I pull these apart and will I need to replace anything putting them back together???

                                                Leonidas is getting a little long in the tooth, so I decided to look for a low-mileage V2K to replace it. Figure I can steal all the goodies I've purchased for Leo over the years, put them on the "new" bike, and Leo would make a perfect tug for the sidecar. En route to Arizona, I stopped in San Bernardino to look at an 09 Classic LT, decided to buy it and have it shipped home. Meanwhile, here in Arizona, I discover Leo is now burning a quart of oil every 250 miles. Not a typo. Top end seems noisy. I don't know motors, and can't discern one noise from another, but I'm going to ride Leo back to San B and swap bikes, ride the "new" bike home. Looks like Ill have to have Leo's motor gone through before putting it back into service...

                                                      Progressive Fork Springs and Fork Oil. Putting in the Pro Springs. Will I need to pour in 17.8 ounces of oil that the manual calls for or a different amount? I do not have this special fork oil level gauge, I don't really need that, do I?

                                                      Oils: I read that some use Full Synthetic and other use standard. There much of a difference between the 2?

                                                      Do I need to put the forks back in the triple trees before adding oil and springs? Do I need new stopper rings like the manual says?

                                                        Some advice from someone who knows, please. I'm considering swapping all painted parts from an 05 A2 (with the CORRECT headlight) with those from an 09 Classic LTD (with the OTHER headlight). It looks like this will require swapping the headlight assemblies and associated parts. At first glance it looks like I need to pull the forks to do this. Amirite?

                                                          I'm thinking it's about time for some new plugs for the beast. I put almost 18K on last summer, and 14K the summer before. I bought the bike used, and am unaware of the last time they were changed out. I topped out at 108 in December, so I'm thinking it's time for new air filter, and plugs. What type of plugs does the 04 perform best with?

                                                            So the mod is about adding a spacer 92200-0017 to one of the gears showing on the picture, thus taking away the free movement.

I don't like the look. the scout is the only one that is somewhat appealing to me and then I look at their 25000 price tag and say why and what the f*** for. Oh wait it's a old manufacturer reborn so I should spend 25000 on a motor and comp. that is realistically untested. parts will be thru the roof if something happens and seriously the look is not really that appealing again.

But a couple of years ago I noticed that I had a small hole on my drive belt. The hole is the about a 1/4 of an inch round and is located in the center of the belt. In the 3 years since i first noticed this hole it doesn't seem to have grown at all. i'm considering replacing the belt but was shocked when I saw the prices on these belts. Does any one have any suggestions on Were I can find a good price for this belt? Appreciate the help.

Had a problem of late with the bike stuttering when pushed, done the usual maintenance, checks, plenty of fartin about, hand wringing and general faffing about trying to sort it. Yesterday out n about, same darn thing?!?!. After dropping my wife off I went for a pootle to see if I could figure it out.

                                                                          Found it....................... Unbeknown to me at the time I've been hitting the rev limiter in second and third when pushing things in the tight stuff. Have never done that in the last four years of ownership! This particular half wit thought I had an issue, lol.

                                                                          Man this bike just never fails to impress, Kawa shot themselves in foot discontinuing this range.

Pulling the wheels tonight to mount new tires for an upcoming road trip, I notice I'm in dire need of a drive belt. I'm aware there is a preferred (by concensus) aftermarket drive belt that costs a fraction of the OEM belt. Leaving in just a few days, can someone please point me in the right direction? THANKS!
