SOURCE: kickstand spring popped off, kickstand is now

The kickstand has some kind of safety switch, if the spring is not broke you should be able to snap it back on (with the kickstand up) and have someone to hold the bike or put it on a lift. It might take some muscle or take it to a dealer and I'm sure they can pop it back on. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: When should I replace the timingbelt on my '02 vulcan classic 1500, it has 90,000 miles

Now is a good time to replace it. Most auto parts stores have the special bar/scoket setup that it takes and then will loan it to you or a small rental charge. It coudl be something you do in the parking lot even though they don't like you do work there.

SOURCE: how to replace the kickstand sensor switch on a 2007 kawasaki vulcan 900 cl

The kickstand sensor on these bikes is just a simple open/short module with a spring loaded switch to activate it. Replacing it is simply a matter of disconnecting the wiring, unbolting the old sensor, replacing the module, bolting it in, and connecting the wire.

Shift trans into gear and engine stops running on a 1997 vulcan

There may be a safety switch on the kickstand so that if it is extended, the engine can not be running if it is in gear. Even if the kickstand is not down, if this switch is sticking it could be your problem. And if you don't have that switch, then I'll have to keep thinking.
Almost touring weather. Nice horse!

1500 Kawasaki Vulcan kick stand spring keeps coming off

Check for Up and Down play at end of kickstand. Usually these bikes will wear the kickstand mount on the Frame - wears like a half moon into it. At the same time it spreads out the Kickstand so that it can start flopping enough for the spring to come loose and fall off. To fix it - Replace kickstand, Spring, AND the Bolt. Then grind the Frame on the other side of the Half moon around the hole until it is LEVEL. Find a Washer (Stainless - .030 - .050 depending on how much you had to grind) and insert it between the Frame and the Kickstand. I have done DOZENS through the years and Never had to do it twice on the same bike. The Washer acts like a Bushing and prevents future wear. Good Luck!

Shuts down when let go of clutch in 1st gear

your kickstand safety switch is gummed up. for safety reasons your bike will not allow you to ride with the kickstand down. The switch is stuck that controls this safety feature. A can of spray carb cleaner will remove any gunk, or you may need to replace the switch. The switch is located near the kickstand. Just look for some wires in the area, they most likey go to the switch.

Check your kickstand safety switch- it sounds as though water from the pavement may be entering it....although I am not sure if the switch is normally open or closed with kickstand up- I don't have a manual for our Vulcan yet!

Where is the engine number located on a 1500 kawasaki vulcan

It's stamped on the *left* side of the crankcase - on the kickstand side. It's between the frame and the crankcase so you need to view it from an angle; looking from the front. Wipe it clean first and and bring a flashlight...
