The Vulcan EN 500 is the smallest member of Kawasaki’s Vulcan series cruiser motorcycles. Unlike the larger V-twin powered models, the Vulcan 500 is equipped with a robust, 498 cc parallel twin cylinder motor. Although this motor was praised for its reliability, regular oil changes are essential to maintaining its performance. The entire oil and filter changing procedure is simple enough for most Vulcan 500 owners to do in their garage in a short period of time.
