You mean you spent the money and did the work to make the clutch hydraulic?

What ever for?

(In it's complete model run, in all counties it was available, the Kawasaki Vulcan 750 was never sold with a hydraulic clutch)

So if you believe they came that way, you're very mistaken

Well, for me goodness came from this.

Reminded me to order a spare clutch cable to throw in the sidecar trunk for those "just in case" things that happen on the road far from home.

You know the you just increased the odds of the cable breaking (before the new one arrives)

Murphy's Law would indicate that whatever cable/part you don't have a spare of is the one that will fail.

if it came that way from the factory, its NOT a VN700/750

yours would be the only one that has a hydraulic clutch if it is indeed a VN700/750

Well, you're definitely tripping. Next you're going to tell me the earth is flat right?

I mean, you don't even have a VN750 at all do you?

Post a photo to prove anything you claim.

Hang on, They could have come from "the factory" with hydraulic clutches!

You see, two enterprising Polish guys were living there in Karchooiestan. They made a copy of the Eve model with hydraulic clutch, like Ural does the BMW. It was marketed under the trade name Kawasakski.

The earth IS flat and pie are round, not square!

Joking aside.

Your post #30. "Well the 89 and 92 750 i had were hydraulic. I just upgraded is all."
your post #34. "No they came that way from the factory. Never touched em."

I think we're being "trolled" 8~)

Yes, my "Bullsheit Meter" did swing quickly on this.

I remember when I was in Florida at a "bike night" gathering, a gal tried to convince me her Vulcan 750 was bored out 1500 cc's. Oddly it sounded exactly like my stock 750, and it had stock carbs. I tried to point out how difficult that would be to accomplish, and it would be kinda useless using the same intake.
But she maintained it was now a 1500.
Sometimes it's best not to even argue, just laugh to yourself and walk away....

Very low post count. Almost certainly spam. There is no way to convert a Vulcan 750 to a hydraulic clutch. But I think this is an important topic. I have always removed all these things from every bike I've ever owned. Fortunately they are not computer controlled, but they do prevent you from learning to ride the right way, and they can fail. The only exception is my 2016 Honda Rebel (last year for the real Rebel) which I bought mostly as a collector bike. I left it completely stock, and just deal with the inconvenience caused by the nanny switches.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
