Removing the Analog Fuel Gauge NOTE The fuel gauge wires are routed through a tube in the fuel tank, and are secured by a clip at the bottom of the tank and, on some models, a clamp on the frame. Open the clip and clamp as needed, and be sure there is enough slack in the wires to be able to lift out the gauge. 1. At the bottom left side of the fuel tank, bend back the flexible clip slightly to free the fuel gauge conduit. Open the harness clamp on the frame if necessary to free the conduit. Gently pull on the conduit to draw the Multilock connector [117] out of the tunnel. 2. See Figure 2. Depress the pin on the socket terminal side of the connector, and pull apart the pin and socket halves. 3. See Appendix B in an appropriate Service Manual. Use a pick (Snap-On TT600-3 or equivalent) to remove the terminals or clip off the wires. Remove and discard the fuel gauge. 4. For Carbureted Models: See Figure 2. Remove the fuel gauge by firmly grasping and carefully pulling up (do NOT twist) on the gauge just far enough to free it from the fuel tank. Disconnect the two sending unit connectors. Feed the conduit and two wires up through the tube while removing the gauge. Remove and discard the fuel gauge. For Fuel-Injected Models: See Figure 2. Remove the fuel gauge by firmly grasping and carefully pulling up (do NOT twist) on the gauge to free it from the fuel tank. Feed the conduit and three wires up through the tube while removing the gauge. Remove and discard the fuel gauge. 5. Remove and discard the rubber gasket. INSTALLATION For Kit Numbers 75084-04B or 75237-03B 1. See Figure 2. Assemble the new gasket (3) to the LED fuel gauge (1) from the kit. Install the gasket so the flat side contacts the edge of the gauge. 2. See Figure 1. Use three of the Phillips-head screws and washers from the kit to connect the wires as follows: Fasten the Orange wire (1) ring terminal to the gauge connection marked “12V and “O” with a screw and washer. Fasten the Black wire (2) ring terminal to the connection marked “GND” and “BK” with a screw and washer. Fasten the Yellow/White wire (3) ring terminal to the connection marked “Y/W” with a screw and washer. 3. See Figure 2. While carefully lowering the fuel gauge, feed the wire harness (2) down into the drain tube until the three short (Orange, Black, Yellow/White) wires exit the hole at the bottom of the fuel tank. Gently pull the wires to remove slack while installing the gauge to the fuel tank. Do not twist the gauge during installation. Hold the gauge firmly and press down until it snaps into place

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

Information: In an effort to reduce service volume, a maintenance-free ribbed Poly-V belt was adopted on all R1100 models from engine number 38946130 onwards (09/94 production onwards). This belt does not need to be retentioned (even at the 600 mile service). The old belt required replacement every 24,000 miles. The new style belt is to be replaced every 36,000 miles. Use the same torque procedure as the old belt. Replacement of an old style belt with the new maintenance free belt requires the use of the new parts below: Parts Kit: 12 31 1 342 086 (kit consists of the following) In addition to the Poly-V belt, the following parts were also changed: 1. Top pulley new: steel old: Aluminum 2. Bottom pulley new no spot welds: old: steel w/three spot welds on front 3. Belt new: Ribbed, printing on belt (1342059 Fa. Dayco) or (1341779 Fa. Conti) Slight squeaking may be heard for a short time after a cold start when temperature is below 50°F. The belt should reach it’s correct operating tension soon after the start up. The belt only needs retentioned if the slight squeaking does not stop after warm up.

Install an oil relief valve PN 11 51 1 342 248 into the oil system (item #11 below). This valve was installed in production since black engine number 41956271, and silver engine number 41959303. This valve allows the oil in the cooling circuit to return to the crankcase when the engine is shut off. This will make it easier to determine the ngine oil level, and reduce the possibility of engine oil over-fill. Install new FR 6 DDC spark plugs, part number 12 12 1 342 125. Follow the procedures in the riders manual during start-up and running-in. Do not start the engine until you are ready to go for the road test. Don’t warm up the engine by letting it idle. Please advise the customer to review the starting, and running-in procedures in the Rider’s Manual. Please advise the customer of the 10w30 or 10w40 mineral based oil for the running-in. Also advise him/her not to top up the oil until it reached the minimum oil level as shown in the Rider’s Manual. Topping off prior to the minimum mark can create the illusion of additional oil consumption. This will be covered under the terms of the BMW Motorcycle Limited Warranty (one time only). Authorization is Required. File a warranty claim. Use the following:

New Styles And Features for Ridley's Automatic Motorcycles in 2008

“Our focus is on delivering a motorcycle that fits the needs of the new market. It seems that so many companies are trying to revamp their line by adding a sixth gear. We’re taking the gears completely out of the equation and letting riders get back to actually riding”, said Clay Ridley about the effort his company has directed towards their new product line. Several new unique features are creating interest among Ridley Riders on the company’s riders forum, one of which is a parking brake. “We take comments from the owners of our motorcycles very, very seriously. Ridley Riders have asked for a parking brake for added security”, commented Jay Ridley, Vice President for the company. Added to the long list of improvements for the new year model is the new “2 Year Plus” factory warranty which offers twenty-five months of factory backed warranty. According to Ridley, this new warranty exceeds coverage provided by most other domestic manufacturer’s. One more reason Ridley believes 2008 will be the company’s best selling year model. With the holiday season fast approaching, Ridley Motorcycle felt the introduction of the new models would have more impact if held back until the middle of November. For Ridley, the holiday season means big business. Several of Ridley’s dealers have reported higher sales in December than in May. The company attributed this to their market which is nearly divided in half among men and women.

Remove existing plug and replace with the 1/8-27 NPT fitting provided, as shown. Make sure the thread is 1/8-27 tapered pipe. Do not over-tighten the new fitting. Over-tightening may result in case splitting. Oil Line: Attach one end of the oil pressure line to the fitting by pushing the end of the tubing into the hole at the end of the fitting. FYI: these fittings are quick disconnect and self-clinching. They need only to be pushed in to connect. They will not slip out unless the ferrule at the end of the fitting is pushed back away from the tubing as the tubing is pulled from the fitting. See “Routing” above. On some models the gauge bracket may be mounted out in front of the handlebars and the gauge turned 180 degrees in the bracket. This application requires that the steering dampener be removed to clear the gauge.
