1996 Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 classic


Question 1996 Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 classic just repainted it and took off the muffler and the rest of the exhaust waiting for my new pipes to come in running it down the road I was able to get about a mile to a maybe 2 miles and it started popping sputtering and stalled waited a couple Minutes started backup and then did it as soon as I got home again I figured maybe fuel pump It wouldn't matter if I hammered it did better if I didn't but I also noticed it was low on oil But the light was not coming on would it have a safety switch where it would shut off if it was overheating due to low oil

  1. Might have to put a tuner on it

  2. You do realize that that is not a Vulcan 1500 classic right? It’s a Vulcan 88… Completely part incompatible with Vulcan classics. Still a 1500 but a completely different engine and chassis.

  3. Over heating because it was running hot since it was not breathing properly. Exhaust has a purpose for being there

  4. Wanna sell the stock exhaust

  5. That is not a 1500 Classic. With spoked wheels it’s a VN1500 L

  6. Was it running okay before you did the work described? There is no safety cut off, if it overheats or runs low on oil you have to cut it off when you see the lights illuminate.

  7. You have changed the dynamics of the engine when you removed the exhaust. The carburetors will have to be re-jetted to accommodate the reduction in back pressure of the new exhaust.

  8. Did you try and run some seafoam thru it?
    Etanol out?
    Both those things could help tremendously if there is a carb prob from , bad gas, too much ethanol in the gas……

  9. Well turned out it wasn’t the carb or the battery when putting it back together I ended up pinching the fuel line to the pump. Put a new one on and took it on a 100 mile ride this morning with no problem
