more sound from your bike

if you go to www.scootworks.com they sell a kit to eliminate the premuffler(the goats belly/premuffler under the battery).it has 2 clamps,2 sections of pipe,some muffler tape,ect. i did it to mine and it sounds great. i get a great rumble from mine. when i take off and hit the gas it sounds like a harley. check it out. go to the shop online section and got to kawasaki and then go to vulcan 750 bypass kit to see it.

I have a good friend who lives in Mt Vernon. His name is David Hardy. He and I met on the www.kawasakimotorcycle.org forums. Since becoming friends we have been on a few rides together. Last summer we went to Red Lodge Montana for the 1st annual Beartooth Kawasaki Get Together and afterward rode to Yellowstone and onto the Tetons and home. We are going again this July for the 2nd annual event. If you are interested in going your more than welcome to come along. My name on the forums is the same as here so if you log on be sure to say hello. The info about the get together is under the Rides/Events/Rallies section there.

I know there are some here who have re-jetted their carbs after doing aftermarket pipes and ear shaving but off hand I don't remember which jets they used. If you check under the Vulcan Versus I think the info may be there. Another member here (Dianna) is knowledgeable and she may be able to help you.

PS I did find this info under the Vulcan Versus section about jetting:

Your very welcome!

Last summer we were gone 8 days (both took our vacation then) and this july were both going to try for 2 weeks. If you are unable to go for that length of time you could leave when you need to. Of course it's always better if you can travel with others in case of an emergency, etc. I allowed myself $500.00 for the trip and still had some left when I returned home. We did stay in a motel in Red Lodge and in others towns as we traveled but we also took camping gear in case we wanted to camp out. The year before I went by myself on a 10 day vacation and camped in my tent so cost was kept to a minimum. In Red Lodge at the motel we are staying at, they have spots for tents so you wouldn't have to go looking for one if you want to camp.
