Took care of what I had to got back on bike ran fine then bucked on me then felt heat on leg on fire only cause I can see is a fuel line rubbing of top of motor no wires burnt have to replace the fuel lines rebuild carbs and replace vacuum lines any suggestions on making it a little cheaper on me on a budget. They want 156 per carb not to mention another 170 to replace the fuel and vacuum lines

Hey riders — People who ride the Kawasaki Vulcan

Hey riders,

6th year riding Vulcans, just sold 900 CSE and picked up this V2k. Couldn't be happier, waiting on some parts to complete STAGE 1. Other than that, did all the flush and fills and she runs perfect. I try to ride everyday.

I posted this to another Vulcan owner group and got no answer to my questions — People who ride the Kawasaki Vulcan

I posted this to another Vulcan owner group and got no answer to my questions. So I re-post it here. Decided to perform the "resistor inline with air temp sensor" mod to my 2007 1500 classic FI with Cobra Classic Deluxe Slashcut exhaust with factory air intake. I own this bike for 3 years and always feel the bike kind of lacking low RPM power, feeling kind of hesitate to speedup when called upon. I was suspecting the pipes might be making the motor running lean due to less back pressure. I love the sound of the after market pipe, not overwhelming but everyone noticed I am here. I was told the Classic Deluxe Slashcut does not need a PC but my experience seem telling another story....... Well, I do not have the budget for a PC, so I did my research and spent about an hour did the operation. Spent most of the hour taking things apart , soldering on the resistor was easy. WOW! Immediately, the exhaust sound goes even deeper, and the engine itself became quieter (I didn't know what knocking and pinging were like till now, it wasn't bad before, but it was there). There used to be a lot of in between gear situations, now I simply go to the next gear and bike would not hesitate. Definitely more powerful in the lower RPM zone. The idle is slightly rougher which can be expected. Throttle response is great, more linear. I also noticed a little less engine break when roll off the throttle. I love this modification as the bike is much better behaved, however, I do have a question about the value of the resistor used in this mod. I currently have a 750 ohm in place and wondering if I need a higher value. How do I know when is too high a value and the engine is running too rich? Here in Minnesota there is not a whole lot of days above 90 degrees, I think I will have to wait till next year to know if 750 ohm is enough to tame the pinging and knocking during hot days. Any experience to share are really appreciated. Thanks.

Edit: I performed this mod instead of installing a power commander because this mod make sense to me from the documentation that I found over the Internet.
