I just did mine on my '99 1500 Drifter, using the method shown on Gadget's Fix-It Page for Kawasaki Vulcans. He has a very easy method that eliminates all the disassembly you normally have to do by installing a grease zerk. Mine must have been nearly dry, it took nearly half a tube of waterproof grease to fill them up. I couldn't believe how much easier it made low speed turns, where you have to turn the handlebars, like when doing a 90 degree turn at a stoplight or stop sign. Just look on the easy tips page, it's about the 4th one down.

OK..True confession.

If this is the first time addressing your 99's Steering Mech., I strongly advise performing a test of the integrity of the head bearing. The health of it would determine a night and day difference in your riding experience not to mention safe riding

Sorry, I made a mistake on where to perform the procedure to install a steering head zerk on Gadgets Tips. It's in the Maintenance section, 6th tip down.
