OK time has come to ditch the stock exhaust on my '05 K 2000. Anyone have any ideas? I've looked at the V & H and the Cobras. Thinking about 2 into 1, any comments?

  • Love the look of the black custom. Seeing these are shorter then the stock pipes, how much louder are the baffeled then the stock? How much louder are the w/o baffels then the baffeled? (will I be getting pulled over every mile) and I knwo these are not 2into1s but will the shorter exhaust show any additional power?

Does anyone have an educated guess how long tires on a Vulcan 2000 should last — Kawasaki Vulcan 2000 VN2000 Rogue owners riders

Does anyone have an educated guess how long tires on a Vulcan 2000 should last? Just had my oil changed and a safety check done to my bike and the shop is trying to push new tires on me.

  • I got 12k out of the stock tire and am now on 11k on the new avons rear still looks good but the front is cupping. I also ride it hard so I must be lucky or something!

  • I only got 4500 out of the rear Metzler Marathon, so after a lot of thorough research, I decided to try out a car tire on the rear - There's a lot of heavy cruiser owners that have tried it with no reported ill results, and I have to say it's working out great! After the initial break in (a few hundred miles) you can't even feel that it's a car tire anymore and I should get 3 to 4 times the mileage than a MC tire.

  • Run 42 psi front and back! 7500 rear, 10k front would be average.

here we have some more rumors from USA as well ( Jul 19 2010):

http://www.caferacer.net/forum /topic.as ... 778#131408

Word here in Japan is that Kawasaki is going to introduce a W800 this fall. I haven't been able to find out anything else about it other than the speculation that it may be exported to U.S. & Europe as well. Guess we'll have to wait to see if this is anything other than rumor

Any one have a modified swing arm from Texas Metrics or done their modification... — Kawasaki Vulcan 2000 VN2000 Rogue owners riders

Any one have a modified swing arm from Texas Metrics, or done their modification to lower back end 4"???

  • Nope, not Texas Metrics, but I can tell ya after the experience I had this wekend, be carefull how low you go. This weekend, I BUSTED my shock. When your using a lowering kit vs. buying the proper/shorter shock, you are using brackets to reposition the "U" bracket on the shock higher, inturn, bringing the original mounting area lower & lowering the rest of the ass end. Mine lasted about a year. This weekend I hit a pretty good pothole. When the swing arm rebounded, it smacked into the bottom of the shock. Lost all the hydrolic fluid and there is now some play/movement between the U bracket & the pre-load adjuster (that wasn't there before). She's off the road for a bit, needless to say. I'll be back on the road sooner rather than later thanks to an AWESOME bro I met here on this board. The cautionary tale here is, when you modify your suspension in this matter, you take the risk of putting yer bike outta commession for a little bit (if your lucky) or taking yerself outta commession for alot longer than that. Just my 2 cents.

  • thanks Matt

  • Yep! n/p

After a little over a year and about 4500 miles the rear tire on my 05 VN2000... — Kawasaki Vulcan 2000 VN2000 Rogue owners riders

After a little over a year and about 4500 miles, the rear tire on my '05 VN2000 Limited was wore out. After some extensive research, I decided to go to "The Darkside" and mounted a General Altimax 205/60r16 car tire. After about 1000 miles on it in the last month, I'm glad I did it! Anyone else here mounted a car tire on their Vulcan 2000? How do you like it?

  • How many burn outs does it take to wear a tire out in 4500 miles? lol

  • Actually, I didn't do ANY burnouts, I'm just very... how should I put it, - GENEROUS with the throttle? ;) :P

  • I'm in the same boat. 5600 miles and I am looking for a new rear also. I am going to try a Metzler.

  • Well John, I'd recommend checking into a car tire. For heavy cruisers like ours, it's an ideal balance of performance and longevity. here's some information from a guy that's ridden over 750,000 miles on motorcycles, and I think he's put about a third of that with a car tire on his Valkyrie:

  • Thanks, I will consider it.
