2009 vulcan 1700 won't start. ran a week ago. has half tank of gas.

It turns over, with no start. It will either be fuel or ignition.
I understand from your description this machine has been sitting for some time. If the fuel is over a year old, drain it and flush the tank and carburetor. There is a lot of residue that occurs from evaporated fuel, mostly varnish.
Check the ignition by pulling a spark plug wire and visually verify the spark to the frame.
Remove and clean and set the spark plugs and re-torque.

sounds like you have some dirt inside your carb remove it and clean out the jets then check the spark plug make sure its not dirty and finally drain the tank and replace the petrol

when petrol sits inside a tank for a while it can start to solidify

hope this helps

A week ago i took my bike to get fixed at a shop it had been sitting for about 2 years the guy said it was a dirty carb and a dirty gas tank he cleaned both and the bike ran fine i rode it for 2 min. or so...

Try replacing spark plug,and check for spark if you do good,check to see if you have fuel to carb,at bottom of carb there is a float bowl screw loosen the screw and let fuel drain,tighten screw,choke and try again,sometimes when bike sits that long it may need one or two cleans,the bad gas that was in it still has varnash build up and can still clog up the jets.hope this helps.

Quad bike wont start-wont even fire

Hello if you ran out of gas i am not familiar with this motorcycle but honda and most street bikes the fuel petcock / fuel valve are vacuum actuated so when you run out of fuel you need to turn the fuel valve to primary to fill the carburetors once you get it started turn the valve back to the on position.
hope this helps.
