Question about kawasaki VN 800 Vulcan Classic Motorcycles
I got stuck 500 km from home in a petrol station.the battery is new but the bike seems it won't charge it.I connected a jump starter and came all the way home like that.My question is,how often does a charger brake?or can it be other problems?the fuses seem allright.

MAYBE IT IS JUST THE BATTERY... TAKE IT BACK AND GET A NEW ONE IF PROBLEM COMES BACK I WOULD TAKE THE BIKE IN FOR A CHECK UP DIAGNOSTIC.

Sometimes after trying to start a bike with a weak battery the starter solenoid gets damaged,or loose connections develop on the solenoid due to heat.It should be next to the battery.

Put the battery in backwards? test light says theres power the charger will show a wide open battery this open (hollow) to be fully charged and it'll be bad and then if put in backwards the main fuse may be blown

SOURCE: Bike was running fine, good
hondas have a weakness in the regulator rectifier unit on quite a lot of models,if the lights are not brightening when the bike is given the throttle its most likely failed,if u have access 2 a multimeter test the battery,the battery should have around 12 volts with the ignition off and with the bike started the voltage should go up 2 around 14 or 14.5 when the bike is given the throttle,if it doesnt your reg rec unit has failed,hope this is of help.

Try bleeding it, if that doesnt work you will need a new master cylinder/ master cylinder rebuild kit, brake seals or brake line, depending on whats leaking. The master cylinder and brake line can come off ANY bike as long as they are the right length (brake line) or fit on the handle bars (master cylinder)
