Question about kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Classic Motorcycles
If possible, how can the bike be lowered, by 1inch.
A company called Progressive makes shocks that are shorter than stock. They may also make front fork springs that are shorter, as well. Although, you can also carefully cut the fork springs to match the lowered rear. I wouldn't lower the bike much more than an inch or parts may hit the asphalt on turns.

the chain or maybe the tensioner from chain. First step is to check the tensioner. Is always located on the line with the cam chain, fixed in 2 bolt in the engine(cilinder). locate it by watching a piece with a bolt in the center, and that piece is fixed on the cilinder with two smaller bolts. When reinstalling, screw the main bolt to retain the spring from tensioner.
If the tensioner is damaged(used) he won't be able to press well on the chain. you see that when you remove it. If you could reinstall it without screwing the bolt, that means that he's used.
after reinstalling on the cilinder, fixed in those two bolts, make sure to unscrew the main bolt back. When you unscrew it, the spring is released on the chain to keep it tensioned.

Check the ground wire at the battery, at the negative post at the battery you'll find a smaller (black/yellow) wire, it must be plugged into the main harness, it might have become unplugged, the connections will be right close to the battery.

Replace the side stand switch. When this switch fails, it will cause your bike to stall out in first gear. These side stand switches are small micro switches and often wear out or just come loose
