        Well written and clearly organized. The illustrations are good quality, as well as highlighted with appropriate embellishments. Highly detailed instructions for most of the more complex teardown and reassembly projects. Good product. I recommend to all.

                Thanks for your question! The Clymer Kawasaki Manual #M4713 would contain information for service and maintenance for the 1996-2008 Vulcan VN1500 Classic. IT would not contain information for the Vulcan 900 Classic.

                I believe you need the 1500 manual for meanstreak since the engine is the same but different overall style.

                Thanks for your question! The manual you are looking at would be for the The Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 Classic, Drifter and Nomad Series, unfortunately we do not offer one for the mean streak at this time. !
