Did you try changing the spark plugs? It could be a bad plug on the rear cylinder.

SOURCE: starter button/switch will not engage on my 2006

Try to bypass the switch with a jumper wire, that way you will know if the switch is indeed defective. Make sure the bike's in neutral.
Other than that, have you checked the battery for voltage?

hi, sounds like the oil seal in the rocker cover has failed, remove the rocker cover and you will see a rubber seal, this seals the oil inside the cover, however when the seal fails around the spark plug hole, oil leaks into spark plug well and out of weep hole.

Hi, Brandon my guess is you have a faulty spark plug or spark plug wire/cable or ignition coil or wiring to the coil is corrupt, check the ohm reading on your plug wires/cables for more information about your question and valuable "FREE" downloads that you will need please click on the links below.

My 2005 Kawasaki Vulcan nomad 1600 backfired in an intersection and ever since it skips and the rear cylinders don't fire have already changed coil pack what else could it be?

Hi, Kevin and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Discharged battery, check 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.
3. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose.
5. Faulty ignition coil or ignition / electronic module
6. Failed CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

My battery for my 2006 vulcan 900 cant start bike every time temp outside is 32 degrees or below. Need to jump start it. But starts normally if warm temperature.

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.
