SOURCE: gas tank

I'm pretty sure it does. I own a 1995 Vulcan and I bought a 2003 tank and looked at the mounting brackets and fuel connections all looked to be the same - but don't put this in stone. I haven't been able to put it on yet because it's still out being painted. There should be no difference in the fuel tank mounts from 1996-1005, but as always, check with a professional if this information is critical.

Make sure the new battery was charged before use. Many require an overnight charge at ~ 2 amps. If battery is charged, but still nothing happens, check for a blown fuse in the small wire that goes to the positive battery terminal. You may need to use a voltmeter or test light for locating where the voltage is getting lost. Good luck!

Check all the connections make sure they aren't loose. Check the ignitor module and make sure it is plugged in correctly. Your rectifier might be dead or dying.
Might even be your side stand lockout switch. If that is dead you won't be going anywhere.

1500 kawasaki vulcan leaking gas into cylinder


could be 2 problems, the carb float needle should stop the flow before it floods into cylnder, so it may need a clean or replace. If it floods when engine not running, the fuel tap may need cleaning or a repair kit, as it should stop the flow when the engine stops

Battery keeps dying in my Kawasaki 900


possible reg/rec issue or the stator....if you have a multi meter you can check the stator by unplugging and hooking up to the stator (component side), set multi meter to volts a/c and connect each plug for voltage. then do a residence test on the stator.
reg/rec issue, make sure you have proper ground, do a diode test to make sure that it is d/c and not a/c

1500 Kawasaki Vulcan 93'


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.
