Will start but wont stay running 06 vulcan

My 2006 kawasaki vulcan will start but dies soon after. It will not start again until I have turned the key off and on, then it starts right up and dies 30 seconds later. I cant start it at all when this happens until I turn the key. Any ideas?

SOURCE: Starting and once started won't run

The problem seem to involve a number of circuits, I would suspect the Key switch as it supplies power to all affected systems. The dieing on release of the clutch is usually the kickstand safety switch. If the kick stand is not up, and the bike in gear, then when the clutch switch detects release is kills the engine so you don't kill your self.
Check or replace these switches.

Hope this is of some help.

you might have a charging system problem without the bike charging system it is only running on the battery power, and once the battery is too low to fire the ignition it will die, check your fuses and power cables to the battery, selenoid and starter, then check the regulator/rectifier, could also be your stator or rotor, only a few possabilities but you will find it.

SOURCE: Hi. just gota second hand honda x8r wot runs ok

Could be any of the following: high voltage spark coil,ignition control box or the coil(s) under the flywheel/generator in the engine.Outside chance of a bad wire.
You can use the liquid spray from a can of "air in a can" upside down to cool the HV coil and ignition box to see if that will let the machine start right after it quits but use caution around the cooling spray as it will freeze skin and eyes fast.
You may also want to try and get a service manual and do the electrical resistance measurements on the above parts to see if they are out of spec when unit quits and then have a good dealer verify the part as good or bad but this is not an exact science.Also test with several meter as some will give you different reading of the some item.
