Hi Nigel:
Cold starts require a rich fuel/air mixture. That's what the choke is supposed to do. Is there a way that you can check your choke linkage to make sure it's working? It may have a loose clamp or screw, and even though you think you're choking it, you're not. Another thing, some of these bikes don't like throttle with a cold start. My '08 Yamaha is Choke on, No throttle. Start, Idle until warm. Choke off, Go play!!

SOURCE: need to tune and change oil on 1996 Kawasaki vulcan 1500

a complete tune up consists of new fuel filter, oil filter, oil, plugs, valve adjust, carb sync and plug wires(optional).. if there is no dipstick, there must be a sight glass on one side of the engine down low. on that model i believe the oil filter is underneath along with the drain plug. there should be (2) 17mm bolts, one for drain plug the other for filter.

Replace fuel filter, air cleaner, spark plugs, spark plug wires, and coil pack. You may elect to use a spray fuel injector cleaner on the throttle body to clean it. That's it!

Hi Timsaw, and the usual suspects are:
1. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition and leaking.
3. Spark plug gap too close or too wide.
4. Faulty ignition coil, module, and or sensor.
5. Battery nearly discharged.
6. Damaged wire or loose/broken connections at battery terminals/cables, especially the "NEGATIVE" cable at both ends, ignition coil, or plug between ignition sensor and module.
7. Intake air leak.
8. Water, dirt, or rust in the fuel system, carburetor and/or filter.
9. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carburetor vent line closed off.
10. Carburetor controls misadjusted.
11. Damaged carburetor.
12. Loose, dirty, or corroded ignition module connector at crankcase.
13. Faulty MAP, CKP, and/or CMP sensors.
14. Incorrect valve timing.
15. Weak or broken valve springs.
16. Damaged intake or exhaust valve.
