Check battery connections to see if they are tight and clean. also check to see if it is proper battery for it. if it is a older battery it might be getting weak and need replaced. some auto parts stores will check them for free for you.

SOURCE: 2001 kaw Vulcan 1500 will not start. new battery, starter relay

Check continuity at the kill switch? sidestand switch? Either could be malfunctioning. What does your manual tell you about the starter relay circuit?

SOURCE: 1999 Vulcan 800 overheating

it sounds like a head gasket has blowen out on you or its running very week on fule that would cause it to run hot but to boile up like you sead it did that bothers me a bit?
did you fit a new thermostat as soon as you found out it was over heating? if you have cooked the engine you may have damaged the pistom rings as well,, get a compreshion test done on it to find out,
dont ride the bike till you have sorted it out

SOURCE: Kawasaki Mule 500 KAF 300 starter will not work below 60 degrees.

Using a lighter viscosity engine oil can make all the difference. Try something on the order of a 5W-30 for ambient temperatures of 60F or below. Of course, it could also be that your starter solenoid is in the early stages of failure. You can easily check it by using a large screwdriver to bridge the two large cable connections on the top of the solenoid. If the starter spins when you do this, then the solenoid is bad.

SOURCE: Battery keeps dying in my Kawasaki 900

possible reg/rec issue or the stator....if you have a multi meter you can check the stator by unplugging and hooking up to the stator (component side), set multi meter to volts a/c and connect each plug for voltage. then do a residence test on the stator.
reg/rec issue, make sure you have proper ground, do a diode test to make sure that it is d/c and not a/c

Kawasaki Vulcan Classic will not start


Hi, JD #4 and #7 are jumping up and down holding brightly colored neon signs that say "PICK ME" and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
4. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
10. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
11. Check for engine trouble codes.

2006 vulcan won't charge


My 2006 vulcan 900 won't start after I replaced starter and battery. It makes a tickering sound when I try to turn it on.

Bike would not start.


If you are hearing the clicking sound that means that your starter motor's relay is trying to engage. Probably you don't have enough juice in your battery. Charge your battery very good and give it a try again.If still nothing happens then you must take out the starter motor and have it repaired. That spinning sound also suggests to take a closer look to your starter motor and your starter clutch which is located behind the stator's rotor.

What is the normal engine temperature of the 929 when hot


My bike runs exactly 100 degrees more than outside temp, when running, in city traffic it heats up fast. The temp will go over 210, the fans kick on at about 211. They have only come on 3 times in 10 years. So, I would assume your bike is close to the same. 900 water cooled.

My bike has just starting cool around 153 degrees at highway speed sometimes less if its cold outside. I'm thinking thermostat is stuck fully open. V tech system is only supposed to work when temp reaches...


You are most likely right about the thermostat. the ST 1300 had that problem and it is always the thermostat. this also effects the fuel mileage. i would go ahead and replace it and see if that fixes your problems. Brian

2005 kawasaki 750 vulcan,starts hard and doesn't seem to be charging,is it the stator??


i have found on these bikes that if the battery is not strong enough it does not crank the engine fast enough to start easily. Especially like it sounds like you are concerned about the charging.Maybee jump start the bike with a strong battery of a car or powerpack and see if this still happens. Beware when jump starting not to short the leads you could blow your CDI.

Over heat ?


Normal operating temperature on the bike should not go over 220 degrees F for very long, even in stop & go traffic. Riding down the highway on a hot day you might be 190 F. At start up there won't be a reading until the sensor gets over the minimum which is probably around 100 degrees. You should be able to see it rise after a minute or so of idling. You should hear your fan come on around 190-200 degrees. Your thermostat probably opens at 180, allowing coolant to flow through the radiator and if that does not cool the bike enough the fan comes on next.
