Additional notes regarding the technical specifiaction of Kawasaki Vulcan VN900 Classic:
- Fuel consumption (fuel economy) measured in L/100km or MPG (miles per gallon) shows how many liters of fuel the motorcycle burns for a 100km rum and respectively how many miles it can run with one gallon of fuel. In the average case Kawasaki Vulcan VN900 Classic will burn 5.90 liters on every 100km of your trip. That is based on the technical specifications of the motorcycle and may vary depending on several factors as style of riding, temperature, road condition etc. As per the MPG number it will run for 39.9 miles while burning one gallon of fuel. Taken into consideration that it has a 18.0 liters (or 4.8 gallons)s fuel tank capacity it can be calculated that Kawasaki Vulcan VN900 Classic can run 305 kilometers or 189 miles with a full fuel tank.
- Engine size (displacement ) of 903 cc - this is the partial volume of the combustion chamber swept by all the pistons in a single movement from bottom dead center to top dead center. Engines with bigger displacement volume tend to produce more power and usually have bigger fuel consumption. The displacement is commonly specified in cc (cubic centimeters) or liters and based on the Kawasaki Vulcan VN900 Classic specifications its engine displacement is 903 cubic centimeters.
- 135 mm ground clearance - means that the shortest distance between the ground (considering it is flat) and the chassis of Vulcan VN900 Classic is 135 mm. The lower the ground clearance the better the handling but on the contrary higher clearance makes the bike more practical on uneven roads and off-road.Bore and stroke measures of Kawasaki Vulcan VN900 Classic
- Bore and stroke 88x74.2 - the bore is a measurement of the inside diameter of the cylinder. The stroke represents the distance traveled by the piston from the top of the cylinder to the bottom (or vice versa) in a single stroke. The bore diameter of Kawasaki Vulcan VN900 Classic is 88 mm and the stroke length is 74.2 mm as per its technical specification. As per the parameters of this Kawasaki engine the measure of the bore is bigger than the stroke which means that Vulcan VN900 Classic has the so called short stroke engine.
- Compression ratio 9.5:1. Imagine an engine's piston is at the bottom of its stroke (step one) and moves up compressing the gas in the cylinder till it reaches its top position of the stroke (step 2). The compression ratio is the ration of the volume in step one over the volume in step two. In other words it represents how tightly the mixture of fuel and air in the combustion chamber is pressed before the ignition. Engines with higher compression ratio are more energy efficient because they are able to extract more mechanical energy from a certain amount of fuel.
- Belt final drive: All three variations of the final drive (shaft, belt and chain) are perfectly doing their job and one of them is always preferable depending on the type of motorcycle and it can not really be said which one of them is the best as each one has its advantages on certain occasions. All three variations of final drive have been used for a very long time and each of them has proved to be successful one. The final drive of Kawasaki Vulcan VN900 Classic is belt.
motorcycle with belt driveBelts are lighter than both chains and shafts, do not rust and require no lubrication. They resist dust and rain better than chains. The typical driving belts are made of aramid fibers covered with synthetic rubber. They are smoother compared to chain drives and more economical than shaft drives when it comes to driving power from the engine to the rear wheel of the motorcycle.
- Liquid cooling system: heat management and biker's comfort are some of the major concerns for the motorcycle manufacturers. While air cooled bikes are better cooled while in motion, the liquid cooled motorcycles have pumps, radiators and fans to deal with the heat even at idle speed.How to replace the Kawasaki Vulcan VN900 Classic turn signals
- If you decided to fix the turn signals of your Kawasaki Vulcan VN900 Classic yourself there is nothing to worry about as that is indeed an easy DIY task. When disconnecting the wires of your motorcycle turn signals it is advisable to stick distinct tapes on them if they are not color coded. The next step is to locate the bolts that hold them in position. There should not be any confusion connecting the new Kawasaki Vulcan VN900 Classic turn signals after they are placed since the wires have been properly marked.Picture of Kawasaki Vulcan VN900 Classic cover
When choosing a motorcycle cover the dimensions of the Kawasaki Vulcan VN900 Classic should be taken into consideration. Please keep in mind that any additional aftermarket accessories can increase the dimensions of the bike. To provide a better protection a larger cover will be needed if additional panniers, sissy bar or windshield have been fitted on the motorcycle.
