The Kawasaki VN1500 combines the performance of a tourer with the visuals of a hot rod, making it perfect for both long-distance travelling and cruising through town in style. Those classic, now retro-looking body panels along with the exposed V-twin engine give this bike a fantastic presence on the road that will be grabbing all the attention. With its mighty 1500cc engine, you’ll be able to load this machine up with as much luggage as you like without the performance struggling as a result. Thanks to its large capacity but low bhp, the VN1500 also offers a relatively good rate of fuel consumption, allowing the rider to see a good 200 miles out of a tank if they’re gentle on the throttle.

Carrying out a lot of long distance riding on this machine is inevitably going to result in a lot of stress on the mechanical parts over time. This isn’t a problem so long as your bike is well maintained, but it can lead to much more serious and expensive consequences if your VN is going to be neglected between rides. Everyday issues such as weather corrosion and just plain wear and tear can pull your bike straight off the road and right into the repair shop which is going to cost you. For a Kawasaki of this calibre, you can expect to see a maintenance charge of over $1000 if your bike is often left to stand for weeks between heavy rides.

But why is it so expensive to keep your bike in check? Well it all comes down to the labour charge. You would expect that parts would be the expensive aspect of a repair, but in fact they’re relatively cheap and easy to source. It’s the cost of fitting these parts that’ll take you way beyond your budget. So why not carry out your own bike maintenance at home? With the help of the VN1500 service manual, you’ll be given all the skills you need in order to keep your bike in excellent working condition. In this way, you’ll be bypassing all those problems caused by a build up of wear on vulnerable parts and preventing your bike from breaking down on you by keeping it under your constant surveillance.

The manual has the potential to save you thousands each year as you’ll no longer need to go down to the garage for neither services, or repairs. This will in turn keep the performance of your bike at an indefinite all time high, whilst ensuring that you’ll be having a safe ride every time you take your bike out. So why not return your bike to its former factory-fresh condition with the Kawasaki manual today?
