Clutch probably not engaging. Could be a clutch mechanism problem.

Try the web. Google " motorcycle salvage kawasaki ".
Chances are you will find it there.

Worst case is you have a welding shop make one to fit then have a chrome shop finish it for use.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

Sidestand switch broken or moved? If the switch does not detect the sidestand is retracted it will kill the engine when it is put in gear.

SOURCE: I have a 1999 vulcan. gear for oil unit exploded and seized engin

Yes, it is possible. This has happened to others through the years and the problem is usually caused by a lack of oil and oil filter changes. Dirty oil can plug up the oil system and cause the bike to seize.

SOURCE: I have a 1996 Vulcan 88 1500. Cranks but will not start.

Is there gas? Is the petcock on? Are you getting gas to the carbs? Are you getting spark? If yes to all these then you may have timing issues.

Kawasaki Vulcan Meanstreak 1500cc is not reading that it is neutral evennthough in neutral and will not strat unless clutch is held???


having to hold the clutch in and have the bike in neutral before it will start is more than likely a saftey feature from the manufacturer.

I hear a ticking in my engine while moving. I checked the oil and it is good. You don't hear it when the bike is idling.


if its only a slight tick under load, probably just the common kawasaki v-twin noise. seems all of them have latters that are unexplainable but never get any worse. mine will be noisy at lower rpm under loads but goes away if i let the rpm go higher in all the gears. best to allow them to run at faster engine speeds as they need lots of oil to keep the overhead cams and hydraulic lifters going. they are not made to lug around.

Why does my bike start on warm days but not on cold ones?I already replaced the starter


are you running 20w50 oil? if yes, probably full synthetic. try running a standard 10w40 oil or something not as heavy as what your using. heavy oil in combination with cooler weather makes for heavier oil, harder for your starter to turn the gears through it. warmer days, gears move easier.

Kawasaki en 500 c1Im having problems changing up and down gears


The bike has some bent shift forks. Bent shift forks do not move the slider gears properly when changing gears. Expensive to fix.

Car hesitates/stalls when engine is warm and car starts to move.


Sounds like a bad motor mount, pop the hood and see if the motor shakes or moves rapidly when u put it in gear holding down the brake.

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.

Clutch slipping while cold, when warm/hot, it operates great.


I have a 2000 Vulcan Nomad FI & had a very similar problem. In fact, it's a very common problem with these bikes. I fixed it by replacing the Clutch Spring. (As Described here: http://www.gadgetjq.com/clutch_spring_replacement.htm

It cost me $40 and 3 hours of time with an impact wrench.
