    Hi ...... and check the micro switch at the sidestand. Good Luck.

    Hi ....... Does the bike 'turn over' ? Have you had any work done lately ? When you say no spark, is this a visable check with the plug grounded to the engine ?

Either the tip over switch is bad, a simple fix or either the resistor in the ignition switch is bad. just for arguments sake check the coils for power going to them, its highly unlikely that the coils are bad, maybe one but not both. i would start with the tip over switch or the resistor (most likely)

    the resistor is found inside the oem ignition switch. check the fuse to the coils if the resistor is bad it kills the power to the coils so it wont fire. its a theft deterrant to keep from hot wiring the bike.even if the side stand switch is bad it would start up but would die when you release the clutch. so let me know if you need to contact me let me know i will give you my cell number

Need radator for kawasaki vn 1500 classic tourer 2001 is the driffter the same radator as the vn 1500 classic plz hellllllllllllp

TO ALL VN1500 OWNERS....This once happen to me,
I went to the garage to start the bike "Nothing ""The first thing is the lights are bright but no turning over,Next you think the solenoid is kaput but the answer was very simple and the fix takes 30 seconds..
Do not take the bike to bits looking for other problems and look at the clutch leaver and you will see some wires going into a plastic shroud going into the switch in the clutch leaver, Make sure this has not popped out if its connection as it some times may do after a few years due to constant turning on the handlebars,
When this is not connected you will have a bike that will not fire up but comes alive and you will hear a clicking noise but this is from the engine carb area and every function of the bike will work but it will not turn over, Worth looking at and saves sixteen quid for a starter unit you never needed.

Without more information, my guess is I would clean your battery cables, most important one is the ground cable under the bike just in front of the rear tire.  Also how old is your battery.
