The Kawasaki Vulcan 800 puts out a respectable 55 horsepower and 47fp of torque. This is plenty of horsepower to get the Sportser style Vulcan down the road in style. But horsepower junkies will want to get the most out of their Kawasakis without depleting their cash flow. Several Kawasaki Vulcan 800 performance tips are inexpensive and add additional horsepower and torque to motorcycles without requiring a complete overhaul of the engine.

Aftermarket Performance Exhaust

Install an after market performance exhaust on the Vulcan. A performance exhaust has three benefits of the OEM (original equipment manufacturer) or stock exhaust. It increases horsepower across the power band, reduces the sprang weight of he motorcycle by 6.8 Kilogram and gives the motorcycle an aggressive exhaust sound. The increase in performance and weight reduction increases overall speed, acceleration and performance.

High Flow-Performance Air Filter

One of the first places to start when adding performance parts to a Vulcan is to install a high-performance air filter. This is due to the low cost, ease of installation and the fact that a high flow-performance air filter adds additional horsepower and torque across the power band. It does so by allowing more air into the engine, thus improving the engine's fuel burning efficiency.

Fuel Processor

A fuel Processor allows owners to "tune" the way the Vulcan's engine distributes fuel, air and spark to the engine. This is similar to how ECU tuner chips modify the way the computer regulates a car engine. The end result is the ability to push the engine's performance by increasing the three elements that create horsepower.
