where does one get a gremlin bell. I've seen them talked about but don't know where to get one. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I've seen them sold right next to the register at my local Kawasaki dealer parts desk....BUT, I've also read that you shouldn't buy one. It needs to be given to you to work.

2004 Kawasaki Vulcan 750 "Serenity"
Changed Oil/Filter and Coolant
Installed Big Crank ETX15L Battery w/charger hookups
Duct-taped retention safety for toolbox door
New OEM clutch lever replaced after first tipover
Plan on: changing brake fluid, coastering, lubing splines, relocating R/R, new saddlebags, highway pegs, windshield.
Scratch that...make that getting her ready for sale. Nope, scratch THAT! I'm keeping her!

X2 yup someone that care about you has to give it as a gift!

I bought one for myself and guess what? i had all kind of gremlins on my kawa within the first day ... i really thought it was a coincidence....but for the next week problem after problems, so i decide to return it to the shop.
the cashier told me if you get it for yourself, it won't work....have someone buy it for you

PEACE!!!

The good book "Google" says:

The Purpose of the Guardian® Bell

Many of us have heard the story about Evil Road Spirits. They are little gremlins that live on your bike. They love to ride, and they’re also responsible for most of your bike’s problems. Sometimes your turn signals refuse to work; your battery goes dead, the clutch needs adjustment, or any of several hundred things that can go wrong. These problems are caused by Evil Road Spirits.

Evil Road Spirits can’t live in the presence of the bell, because they get trapped in the hollow of the bell. Among other things, their hearing is supersensitive, so the constant ringing of the bell and the confined space drives them insane. They lose their grip and eventually fall to the roadway. Have you ever wondered how potholes are formed? The bell has served its purpose.

If you pick up a Guardian® Bell of your own, the magic will work, but if your bell is given to you, the power is doubled, and you know that somewhere you have a special friend helping to look after you.

So, if you have a friend who doesn’t have a bell, why not give them one? It’s a nice feeling for the recipient to know you care. The bell, plus a good preventive maintenance program by the bikes owner, will help eliminate Evil Road Spirits.

If someone needs one PM me and I'll buy and send you one. And FYI I need one as well. I mentioned it to my girlfriend and she said she would take care of it but somehow she hasn't found time. And the gremlins got me today- sudden leaky gas tank.

So if anyone wants to send me one so it will work...

Still to this day some people wonder why American Motors Corporation went belly up and is no more.

Why would anybody name anything a "Gremlin" I guess they knew it was a P.O.S. from the start.

Maybe it was the GM engines they used in some models.
