Why do advertisers say free manual download but it not true. Is that not false advertising. I'm trying to get a wiring diagram for a 97vn750 vulcan. If anyone can help I would appreciate it thanks big John.

I have the newest version of the Clymer manual that's has never let me down. If anybody needs a section scanned out of it let me know. Its just too massive to scan the entire thing.

Loosing power

Thank all for any help you can provide.
I have a Vulcan 75 1993

Welcome to the forum!

Ok, I'll bite.

Your left carb has a stuck float or it's passing gas through the vacuum line on the left carb. It's running on one cylinder, so it's only got half power, or less really.

1. try tapping on the carb bowl to free the float
2. check the vacuum line to see if there's gas in it

After the fuel problem is fixed, drain the oil since it's probably full of gas, I wouldn't run it with that much gas in the crankcase.

I have both the downloaded PDF manual and the Clymer paper manual. I seriously prefer the Clymer, as it explains things a lot better. And it has a lot of helpful pointers which can save you a lot of time and trouble, and help prevent damage to both you and the bike. It was written for the do it yourselfer, while the oem manual was written for Kawasaki mechanics.

As for as the engine goes, I HIGHLY recommend Roach's videos. He did an outstanding job, and makes everything crystal clear.

I know it's a late reply, but I'm new to the forum and definitely willing to filehost if it means spreading the knowledge. PM me and we'll set it up.
