CHANGING OIL IN THE KAWASAKI VULCAN VN2000 ( based on a 2005 model) by tensm an1 Preparing the motorcycle: 1. To start, level the motorcycle – my preference is to put a spacer blocks under the kickstand on the left side of the motorcycle and under the frame on the right side of the bike just under the frame member. These blocks are made from scrap lumber. I find it is easier to set the right side block first as shown and tilt the motorcycle until the frame contacts the block, then, holding the handlebars, kick the left side block under the kickstand. 6″ NOTE: This dimension may not be correct for 2004 models as the 2005 models have a different kickstand – the 2004 model will likely be thicker. To be sure your blocks are the correct thickness the first time, lay a level across the luggage rack as shown. You may need to shim them slightly to hold the bike dead level. 2 7/8″”
Or, in the absence of a luggage rack, the seat will do: 2. Get the necessary tools ready: Oil filter wrench – I like the band type shown, but a metal strap type will work. 14 mm box wrench

MOTORCYCLE BLEEDING PROCEDURE Before bleeding the system, ensure that: 1) The brake caliper pistons are free to move within the calipers. 2) The master cylinder piston is free to return to the end of its stroke, and 3) Inspect the line to ensure that all fittings are tight. FRONT BRAKE 1) Pump brake lever to seat caliper pads against rotor. 2) Cover gas tank with plastic protective sheet if using DOT 3 fluid (not necessary if using DOT 5 fluid). 3) Remove master cylinder reservoir cap and fill reservoir. 4) Select the appropriate adapter(s). The L-shaped universal adapters should fit snugly over the brake bleeding fitting in order to seal properly. The tapered adapters fit inside the thru-hole of fitting and will generally seal well when inserted tightly with a pressing and twisting motion. Attach adapter to reservoir hose. 5) Pump several times to create vacuum. Crack bleeder valve with box wrench, extracting fluid into reservoir. (Stop and add fluid when master cylinder begins to get low. Do not allow air to enter line.). At this point, all air should be out of system and line full of fluid. (Note: if air is entering the pump hose from around bleeder fitting, remove bleeder fitting and apply Teflon tape to threaded portion of bleeder screw only. This will prevent air seepage around threads of bleeder screw.) 6) While maintaining vacuum on the pump line, tighten bleeder fitting. 7) Top off reservoir and reinstall cover. Check brake by pumping lever several times. Pedal should have a positive, solid feel. If not, repeat bleeding process as more air may have entered the system. Inspect line to ensure all fittings are tight. If brake still feels slack, consult a service technician.

Check to determine if the BMW system case mounts have been properly installed and that all fasteners and fittings are properly tightened. Inspect for signs of stress, fracture, bending, or other failure. If found, return the mounts to your dealer for replacement. Do not attempt to mount the BestRest FitKit if the BMW system case saddlebag mounts are damaged, defective, or improperly installed. If the BMW luggage rack is in place, remove it from the system case mounts. Removal is accomplished by removing the 4 torx screws, 2 on each side. Use the torx wrench from your toolkit. Once the stock “luggage” rack is removed, you’ll be mounting the Roadster FitKit using those same 4 holes. You’ll be replacing the stock torx head screws with the longer socket head hex screws found in the parts package. Place a flat washer on the 6mm screws and start the screws into the 4 holes. The 4 screws may need some gentle help to get them thru the holes. Work patiently and do not use brute force! Once the screws have started in the holes, turn them clockwise with a hex wrench to help them pass thru the saddlebag mounts and the FitKit Plate. Place a flat washer and 6mm nylon locknut on the end of each screw and tighten the nuts <<<<>>>>. From the rear, lift up on the FitKit Plate and “wiggle” it up and down <<<>>> a few times to remove any tension between the FitKit Plate and the system case brackets. You’ll find a point where everything feels “neutral” and where the screws are aligned in their holes. Tighten the nuts fully. Use common sense and do not over-tighten. Do not use extensions on the hex wrench. As a final tightening technique, hold the hex wrench stationary while you tighten the nuts another ¼ turn, using the box wrench. From the rear, wiggle the FitKit Plate up and down again. If it’s loose, tighten the screws and nuts again. Repeat until the FitKit Plate is snug and secure between the bag mounts. Place a CargoRest over the top of the FitKit Plate. Installation is the same for all 3 models of CargoRest. Align the 5 holes shown in the photo with the holes in the FitKit Plate.
