It's rather annoying but you have to push the lock in about 1/4 to 3/8 of an inch. Turn your steering all the way in whichever direction is easiest for you to get to the lock, then turn it back slightly. Then put the key in the lock and push it in like you are trying to insert the key farther. If it does not move easily you are not quite in the right spot.

I had the same problem on my K100. After someone shows you how once it is easy. Good luck.

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.

Well i would say the clutches have sat dry to long. You may change the oil and it solve the problem but more than likely new clutch discs.
