Question about 2004 kawasaki VN 1500 Vulcan Classic
Stopped running in the middle of the road. It still has some juice, as the running lights come on. When I go to turn it over it makes a click and running lights go out. When I push start it, it turns on for a split second. I keep the throttle going and it still dies out in about 1-2 seconds. My battery is only 1 year old. The kick stand is not down. The solinoid was replaced 2 summers ago. What is the problem?
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.

Make sure your clutch lever is all the way out when you start your bike. i had the same issue and it was because the clutch would not fully release
